I had an epiphany a few weeks ago - I was on Facebook and a status popped up and I said "I don't recognize her last name." Opened it and found out it was a guy, who I still didn't recognize. I accepted his friend request because we had friends in common, but I'd never talked to him. I deleted him. I realized the same thing was true for lots of my 1,000+ friends, so I've been on a bit of a deleting spree. I'm down to 957 and I still feel like it's excessive.
What I've been doing is going through the birthday calendar and deleting anyone I don't talk to or don't really know in real life. It's been very effective. And I feel kinda bad...I know I'd be sad if I noticed someone had deleted me...but I don't feel that bad.
My question is, what do you do if you are facebook friends with someone that passed away?
