Facebook and Defriending

Nominally, with me having a Facebook account with 300+ friends I could care less about who defriends me unless I'm close to that person or something occurred in the real world, you know like realizing your ex-boyfriend and his friends have deleted you or having problems with a good friend(in my case it just added more drama). I'll admit I have had removed a couple of people from my friend list too to various offline reasons.

Anyways recently a friend added something on my profile called Unfriend Finder which actually allows you to be notified when someone defriends you and I'm now fascinated by it. Since I got this app, just about all of these "defriendings" were people actually simply deleting their profiles and not actually removing me from their friend lists. There was one where I realized I really didn't know the person. Anyways this past week though I finally got two actual real defriendings and for whatever reason I felt more offended than I did with my ex or friend. The first was some girl I didn't know besides having like 20 friends in common who just added me two months ago. The second one was also a girl who lived in the same apartment complex as me about two years ago who I really haven't spoken too since moving out. I dunno want I did or said, but for some reason out of the 800+ friends she has she felt the need to remove me. Annoyed, I decided to block her.

I dunno, perhaps people are crazy. I mean it actually takes some effort to go and remove someone from your friend list, enough that you actually care. Anyone else have tales of being defriended on Facebook?

But see, how many friends do you have? Like over 1,000? I don't have that many and I couldn't see myself defriending anyone at this point although I have taken one or two status update whores off my feed. I swear, some people talk just to hear themselves speak.

My ex-girlfriend's former co-worker who we were social with defriended me and I was so offended. :lol: He was definitely just a good acqaintance who I only knew because of her, but we got along well and his wife is still my friend so I wondered if it was one of those things where he thought I'd defriend him and he beat me to the punch. :P

I have 200.

I go through and look at them and ask myself are we really friends? if not i ask myself if we regularly talk. if not i ask myself if they are a connection somewhere. if not, i delete. lol.
