Observation #14

At some point in my Facebook life, I decided that as a matter of principle, I would not unfriend (or is it defriend?) anyone. This is a decision that I regret.

Daily.

as it is possible to fall from grace... do you think it is possible to no longer be friends with someone?

Oh certainly, I think it is possible to no longer be friends with someone…happens all the time.

When I mentioned my principle of not unfriending someone, I just meant that I had determined that I would not be the active initiator in the severing of a relationship.

There are a lot of people on Facebook who I have become 'friends' with over the years who I no longer have any connection to. So they are not really my friends and I wish they didn't clutter up my news feed, but at the same time, as a matter of principle, I don't like the conscious decision to cut them out of my life and the implications of that.

Maybe that makes sense? Sure seemed somewhat rambling to me…

You can choose to have their information not appear in your news feed without defriending them. There is a very useful setting for that.

Luke, that makes perfect sense. Good call.

Jared,

Yes! I forget about that feature sometimes; it is very helpful.
