What is the deal with people, that I never interact with face-to-face, adding me as a friend on Facebook? What makes them think that I’m gonna talk to them over a cyber social network?
At least once a week, I get a random person trying to add me to their extensive list of pseudo-friends and it’s getting really annoying.

I used to accept the friend requests just because I would feel bad, but why should I feel bad? It’s not like we’ve had a long-standing relationship or even talk at all. I guess people don’t know the unwritten rules of social media - oh well.
So unfriending has become a favourite pastime of mine over recent months. It may sound mean but this wouldn’t be necessary if people just knew a little more about Facebook etiquette.
All you guilty parties, if you’re not getting my friend confirmations, it’s probably because we’re NOT friends.
