Ever done one of these? I just did - removed almost 100 people.
Let's talk about facebook.
I deleted you....and all DiSsers for that matter. I do really like a lot of you, but I'll probably never see any of you again so....
Broken a lot of hearts today
This amuses me.
know anywhere that sells egg whites for non-ridiculous prices chris?
I've got 90 facebook friends. It's true that I don't speak really speak to some of 'em, but the number really won't be that high.
In fact, I've just looked at my DWYAP* friend list filter thingy. There are 11 people on it.
*Dunno Who You Are Pal**.
**I do know who they are, but they snuck onto my fb in the early days as old school people and I couldn't give a damn about what they're doing or what they have to say for 'emselves.
A quick check tells me I have 94. At least half of those are just kept out of politeness, or because I've deleted them and they've sent me another friend request.
no real need to though, is there? you can just hide them. OR unless you don't want them to see your shit, i guess.
i could easily delete 3/4s of my friends list. never speak to em.
We should all add chris.
Lets keep inundating him with friend requests untill he goes nuts, goes for a run and keeps running.
but a bitch aint one
just foolin' around, they ALL bitches
What is 'friend'?
And it was for the same reason. Life's too short.
e-massacres feel really good
but I don't see why people are so obsessively proud of their 'culls'.
As long as you keep your security and privacy fairly rigid, why does it matter having a load of random acquaintances around? It's often turned up interesting stuff when I hear rumours about what people from university are doing now, or just some hilarious statuses/photos where I can look at them and go 'thank goodness I am not you'.
so the people i dont know that say stupid things don't bother me either way. What's satisfying is deleting the people you actively dislike. Just a really satisfying way of saying BY THE WAY, YOU'RE A PRICK.
A decent 'quarantine' 'friend' list, with nuff stuff blocked to them, plus your wall posts default set to not post to the 'quarantine' list and you're golden.
are doing ... Or, more accurately, how fat they've got.
I know what all my friends are doing anyway.
You never know when you might need it for, "Shit, what's xxxx's girlfriend/wife/boyfriend/husband's name again?"
Just clicked on someone in facebook chat as a way of then clicking on their name in the chat box to go to their profile. In the chat box was a conversation we had almost two years ago. TWO YEARS. Why on earth are they wasting storage on chat messages from two years ago?
Google Groups hosts an archive of Usenet posts dating back to May 1981.
And Google estimated that there are about 130 million unique books in the world. Last October they said they'd got as far as scanning over 15 million of 'em.
Then there's Google Maps and Street View.
And Gmail. And Hotmail. And Yahoo Mail.
As of 2009 the Wayback Machine contained about 3 petabytes (~3 million GB) of data and was growing at a rate of 100 terabytes (~100,000 GB) per month, as compared with the 12 terabytes/month growth rate reported in 2003.
The whole of Wikipedia is only ~50 or so GB.
INTERNET CAN HAZ YOUR DATA.
just pointing out how utterly insignificant "TWO YEARS" of text chat is in the grand scheme of things.
with a little splash of self-deprecating hyper bowl on the end.
do you not like to be splashed with self-deprecating hyper bowl, vikram?
Please keep adding to it.
when all my real life friends started signing up to Facebook and I started using it properly. I only got rid of a couple of them I think, one of whom I thought was really annoying. I deleted another one a year or so later when they started 'liking' pages like 'KFC - made by whites, served by blacks, loved by Asians' or some shite.
I don't delete old school friends and acquaintances because I am a rational human being.
in the tits, updating every hour or so. People who link it with Twitter tend to do this/have nothing to say that's worth me reading.
The best thing is when somebody adds you on facebook then when you accept and see them on the street/at work and they totally blank you.
poor form DiS
Will that do?
that if i was a stand up comedian, 95% of my set would be just talking about facebook.
and I would also say that a large proportion of that 95% comes from people I would perhaps otherwise cull if THEY WEREN'T SO DAMNED FUNNY.
I love those certain special, precious facebook friends that detail their lives falling apart to 500+ friends via incessant status-updating. I'm not saying I take pleasure in misfortune, but my oh my, is it compelling stuff reading about court dates and stolen drugs and the like.
for a slot on ITV's Comedy Rocks.
Deleted some bloke from uni who I never speak to and he never seems to use it.
Guess who walked into the pub on Saturday? Thankfully I don't think he'd noticed
I'm pretty rubbish at guessing games.
