Do you unfriend people on Facebook/Myspace?

    Do you "unfriend" people on Facebook/Myspace?

    For any particular reason at all?

    If you start to dislike someone, then do you necessarily unfriend that person?

    - I know a lot of people who used to like me but then started to dislike me, but none of them have unfriended me (even though they are occasionally reminded of my presence).

    Nope. Seems childish.

    I've never been to either place, and have no intention of doing so in the future, so the question is irrelevant to me.

    No, not at all. I can't see any reason to do so.

    I only joined it two days ago so no not yet :smile:

    Mind you I only joined it to play some geography game, so I'm not exactly using it to meet and greet anyway.

    Forums are better for conversations IMO.

    Aren't "friends" lists really just "people I know" lists?

    I don't use those websites, but I'm the type of person who would keep the list small to avoid having to spend time scanning it.

    I just restrict people from seeing my stuff.

    Um... a lot of people are Facebook fanatics, like my mom and sister. And they do block/delete people. They're drama queens and they like the drama that comes from it. They actually have facebook nights where they hang out and play on facebook for like hours. Just looking at everyone's stuff. My ex-gf blocked them because my mom and sister would talk **** about them. Oh, and they have no idea we broke up. I'll probably never tell them until I finish school and move far far far away.

    I avoid facebook in general. I only message my current and real friends.

    This pretty much describes every girl who goes to my school (and a few guys.)

    What's this "Myspace?" I think I'm the only person on the planet to have never visited that site.

    Be afraid, be very afraid. Every teenager on the planet is on that site.

    I'll tell you this much: If it was a country in the natural world, it would be the 11th biggest in population size. Between Mexico and Japan, I believe.

    I detest these sites. I will stay in touch with the people I want to stay in touch with without the help of these sites. All these sites help you do is to stay in touch with the people you never want to see again.

    The other problem I have with them are those people who rather have someone post on their facebook wall instead of calling them or sending them an email! C'mon!!:rolleyes::rofl:

    Well my dog is 14, in dog years, and loves her myspace. Yes its hard to keep teens away from it. She has 80 doggy friends there. Don't worry I monitor every thing she does on line.:approve:

    I remember my sister telling me that she used to unfriend her boyfriend every time they got in a fight. :rofl:

    I unfriend people regularly. I hate when people add me and then never talk to me. I don't like just being another friend on someone's list. I like to keep my friends list small.

    And i hate myspace anyway.
