I recently deleted 2 people from my Facebook friends list and you'd think I literally used an axe to cut them out of my life. The first "friend" I deleted went on a rant, running down her list of friends, screaming in all aps - “Donna deleted me! What the...! Donna DELETED ME!” The second person was apparently so upset he had to take to his bed because he's not the one who messaged me; he had a friend do it.
Listen, don't take this personally because I don't even know you. And that's the whole point, isn't it? If I don't know you, and you don't know me; what does it really matter, in the grand scheme of things, that I deleted you from my friend list? Let me make this easy on you. Here are 5 reasons I delete people from my Facebook friends list.
I'm not a prude by any means. But you don't know that, do you? And I don't know anything about you other than the fact that your vocabulary is severely limited. I never used a 4-letter word when I was communicating with you; why do you think it's okay to use them when you're communicating with me?
You have no idea who is going to see what you post on facebook and, while the C-word, the N-word and the F-word may be a part of your everyday vocabulary, most people find them offensive. It doesn't matter to me at all that you're not intelligent enough to express yourself with words of more than 4 letters. But it's my page and I choose not to read that kind of language, that's all.
It's nothing personal. It doesn't mean I'm mad at you or I don't like you or I'm going to hack your account. It just means I don't like to read that kind of language, that's all.
I have a big chip on my shoulder when it comes to social networks, and I'm just waiting for somebody to come along and try to knock it off. In my opinion, social networks are destroying the very fabric of humanity.
