Pearland Real Estate Expert


Time to Downsize my Facebook

The last few day I have been working to remove “friends” from Facebook.  Somehow I has amassed almost 2500 friends over the years and I have made the personal decision to remove EVERYONE that is not somehow connected to me.  As I start today, I am sitting at 1893 “Friends”.

This has been a very pain staking process. You must go to each profile and for me, I have to look to how it is I might know them and then make the decision to keep them as a Friend or not. It would me much easier if Facebook would make a MASS DELETE button.  I have everyone broken into different categories and it would make sense if I could just delete the group and all of the people could just be unfriended.  I think most of the people who I don’t know came from people who wanted to be friend from a game I use to play...

So, if you get unfriended by me by, and you know me, please ask again. Because I have been going through very quickly and it is possibele to make a mistake.

I have made the decision to keep almost all that I am connected to that have some sort of Real Estate connection or that I have a relationship with.. Today I have over 180 friend request and my gaol is to go through all of them...

What are your Facebook goals and plans? I would love some feedback on how you are handling your friend request...
