If you were to narrow things down on your Facebook and only keep the friends who are active with status updates, how many friends would you really have

sometimes I wonder why I bother with facebook. I have 200 hundred friends but only a handful ever have a status update. I would say if i just kept those who have status updates I would have maybe 20 friends

  • There's probably about 20 people I talk to regularly as well (and consider close friends or family), and I have around 240 'friends'. I'd say there's probably at least 50 that I communicate with occasionally, it's just that some people aren't on there much and some are friends of friends so I only comment (or get comments) every once in a while. Supposedly most users only communicate with about 5-10% of their FB 'friends' regularly, so your numbers seem about right to me. I don't mind having friends that I only contact once in a while, because at least I know I can reach them if I need to and it's nice to 'see' old friends online. I have known people who deleted a bunch of people that they never heard from too. Just depends on your preferences.

  • 50..and that is what I have now. If you aren't my friend in real life then I wont add you. I get so annoyed when friends of friends request me to add them. I don't know you so I'm not going to add you...declined!! lol

  • out of the 120 some odd people I keep in touch with (all but 3 I know IRL- and those are in some way related to me), about 100 of them stay in touch, the others are either busy, or active military who are deployed.
