Nice. So far I have unfriended only one person. I suppose my threshold of tolerance his very very high, or should I say the threshold is low?

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Wow! I have unfriended quite a few, but none due to anger. They were mostly inactive farmville players or spammy bloggers.

I usually wouldn't unfriend anyone unless if i don't like their attitude toward me. And so far i haven't come across anyone so, besides sifting through social networking sites is something i do once in a bluemoon.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Lucky you, Elvirah! I'm more or less addicted to Facebook. Used to play FarmVille until a few months ago, and during those days, FB was "life" literally! Thankfully, I gave up FarmVille finally, so now the social networking is still a bit balanced. :P

I unfriended 120 people on Orkut, only to have nearly all of them adding me back on Facebook within weeks. I found it awkward to decline requests from colleagues who I wasn't interested in becoming friends with because I would meet them everyday and because people tend to fuss over these things. Facebook's new (new to me anyway!) privacy features are handy, thanks to which I can control what a particular 'friend' gets to view on my profile to a fairly precise degree. I wish people in my office would realize that sharing a workplace does not automatically translate into 'friendship' :P

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Hmmmm. I have very few ex-colleagues in my friend list. But then, since I'm not associated with the BPO sector any more now, it doesn't make any sense to network with those people, unless I was already on friendly terms with them when I left that sector. However, I don't see FB as the virtual space for my "friends"... I see it more as a place where I network with like-minded people. For friends, my house is the place to hang out (or theirs... doesn't make any difference)!

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

That being said, I definitely would pester my "friends" to get on FB if they aren't already there, and add me if they haven't already done so! :P It gives us more 'masala' to gossip about when we meet in real na! Plus all those posts we can pull their legs about when we get together (which we obviously won't do in public)! ;-)

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

Nothing beats gupshup at home, no club, restaurant and definitely not a movie theatre :-)

Given the odd hours I keep however, Facebook helps me to stay in touch with people who do not live in Delhi any more or those who have a completely different schedule from mine, people I would have otherwise spoken over the phone with. I do not post status updates, do not play games, rarely post comments and almost never write on people's walls. Come to think of it, I might as well have stayed with email!

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Not to forget... you don't even have a display pic on Facebook!

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

One can display ones picture on Facebook? Who would have thought. What would they come up with next? A button that you can click when you like something but are too lazy to comment on? Boy, wouldn't that be something.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

OB ???

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

Didn't work? Ok.
