Well done! That's a great step. :D Fb frustrates me so, like winding me up how unliked I am compared with other people:/, and I have thought about deleting it a few times... but there are a few small things that have meant I haven't... for now.
Hopefully not making too many moot points... heh... *ahem* :D

It`s a bold step. I don`t think having a huge number of fb friends is necessarily a good measure of how popular someone is. It's the quality of the friendships that matters. I use it to keep in touch with friends I don`t see so often but I don`t post much at all.

Found this today useful for anyone who wants to spring clean their FB

I have rarely use Facebook, joined in 2007 when the site was much easier and better to use, since a lot of changes have been made over the years, more people joined leaving social site Myspace.

I don't have many friends as it is (not heard from some people I went to school with since 2002/2003 possibly because we have changed internet providers a a few times. I think from school I only have added one friend and his brother, added a couple of ex-work colleagues, a few people from college and that is it. I don't need to add everyone who I have met, known.

I have not even added any family members on FB as I live with my parents, sister phones up a couple of times a week. My mum tells me a few things what my Uncle his wife, my two cousins are up to since at the moment living in the USA.

I prefer the old fashion way of speaking to people, face to face, telephone (not mobile) or the good old letter.

I think FB may be useful in the future as I think the form I was in during secondary school someone might want to orgainsed a get together (but I doubt I will be remembered) But don't like all this FB drama.
