Someone on [community profile] datinandrelatin posed the question of what guidelines warrents a friendship and a deletion on Facebook, so here's my response; just for the record as it stands to date:

I find a lot of "friends of friends" add me and I may or may not have heard of them. I usually add them back but if they don't talk to me in the following month or so, I will remove them.
I tend to have various rules for adding people to my list and I can't quite work them out yet. I mostly don't add just acquaintences but occasionally I do if I feel I want to get to know them better or if we use to be pretty good friends. However, as with the above, if they don't talk to me, or if I try commenting and they never ever reply back I remove them again.
I use to have a whole heap of school people on my list and I noticed a lot of them were never replying to my comments, so I've removed a lot of them. Furthermore, a lot of "friends of friends" like to add me to beef numbers on their list; I'm on to it!
However, there's a couple of people from school I now click with better than i ever did at school; in other words, we've established a much more stable friendship as a result of facebook.
I do like to network and also try and get to know people from my work places etc. So I added a few people from work recently and don't regret most of them as I've become good friends with them in real life.

P.S. Am writing this on Dreamwidth as I'm not able to get to the "post" page on LJ at the moment. :(

So, I just created a Dreamwidth account as I've noticed more and more people are doing. I'm never changing the way I use livejournal; not at all; But I can't deny I've been a bit fearful with the increasing amount of times Livejournal has been attacked of late; so as we speak, hopefully dreamwidth is importing all my LJ entries, comments, friends list (journal ID's at least), custom friends groups, tags, icons - the works over. -- It will also be a great backup when LJ is down; I can post to DW and then hopefully it will sinc over to LJ once this is back up. I thank [livejournal.com profile] silly_singer for the invite code as with the early days of LJ, it requires one in order to join.
Haven't really looked around dW to a great extent yet; just enough to read up on how to do the import. But it seems to me like it's presented better than LJ now. LJ use to be very good but they've changed over the years; it's still not bad, but in terms of accessibility, DW might just beat LJ now.
So, simply a backup to my years worth of online journalling; probably won't be concentrating much on socializing over there.
Til Next time, RdFreak
