I turned down 43 people on Facebook today (that’s a few days worth–I’m not that popular). I sent each of them a note explaining. I wonder if that makes any difference?
Is there an etiquette guide to Facebook friends yet? Someone should write it.
An ex-girlfriend asked to be my friend. That’s a girlfriend about 30 years removed. It was an awkward decision. Friend or no? I said yes hoping that was the end of it. So far it is.
Someone I disliked in college tried to friend me. Ignore.
In my note I said “Thanks for the friend request which I really appreciate. I hope you don’t mind but I am trying to keep my Facebook account for friends from ‘real life.’
At least one copy of that note went to someone I actually knew. Oops.
