Do you ever remove people from your Facebook friends list? If so, why?
Yes, because we had a falling out in life, because they were in a relationship with a friend and that broke up and we had not established a strong friendship ourselves. Things of this nature. No one has every made me mad enough to remove them for something they did to me. I only have friends on facebook that I am friends with in life.
Do you ever hide certain friends' updates from your Facebook feed? If so, why?
Do you ever prevent certain Facebook friends from seeing your wall, or from seeing certain status updates you make? If so, why?
Has anyone ever blocked you on Facebook, or removed you from their friends, or filtered what you see of their updates? How did you become aware of this? Did you care?
I've been dropped but I don't care, it's their spot, it's their prerogative. I can't worry about something that silly.
Do you find you have quite a few Facebook friends that you barely know, you never talk to, and you really don't particularly want on you friends list - but at the same time, you haven't got any problem with them, so it might cause more of a hassle to remove them?
No, all my friends are face to face friends of mine in life and just like in life I talk to some friends more than others.
The last one is true of me - and gosh, what do you do when you added someone years ago and you barely know each other, and you know that neither of you have any intention of staying in touch? I once unfriended someone who was an arsehole - but never unfriended someone simply because I barely know them and we are not in touch. I sometimes hide certain people's updates from my feed, but that is specifically if they write annoying updates (opinionated in quite an ignorant way, for instance, or regular passive aggressive whining, obviously aimed at certain of their FB friends without naming them).
If I barely know them and we don't want to stay in touch I remove them, period, it's what we both want anyway, lol.
