Are you a picky person when it comes to friends? I mean, even to something as trivial as your Multiply or Friendster friends list? Or do you just add whoever, because s/he looks remotely familiar or s/he’s the friend of the cousin of your second grade seatmate?

Haha, I realize this blog has been a dumping ground for so many very random thoughts.

But seriously, is that good Netiquette? To add people just because they added you? Or is it okay not to do anything to those requests? Not like it’s a matter of life and death, but a friend pointed out the other day at the amount of requests I had on a certain site. And I said, “I don’t know them!” or “Hindi ko naman kasi siya friend.” Does that make me a meanie? (I am actually an SMG: secret mean girl. Haha!) Because to me that girl who I “know” in high school isn’t my friend unless we actually talked and interacted. Riiiight?

Wala lang. I don’t even know why I bother. :)) But it’s something I’ve always wanted to post about. Do you approve everyone who requests to be your friend? (Haha, this can be applied to real life interaction also, come to think of it.) Because I know I don’t just cozy up to everysingleperson I meet. Haha!

Grabe, masyado kong sineseryoso ang mga bagay-bagay. Good night!

    Well, I don’t add EVERYONE who adds me, but usually if I’ve interacted with them at least once (whether one-on-one or in a group setting), I accept the friend request. I like that on Facebook I can separate people into friend lists, so I can limit access to certain parts of my profile.

    Otherwise it’s a great way to keep track of who you’ve met — and it might come in useful later on for networking purposes.

    Naku, I don’t. :p I feel like I’m such a meanie when i “DENY” or “IGNORE” or “BLOCK.” Eh why ba? Masama na ang experience ko, or natin, sa mga nagfeefeeling best friend kahit hindi ka naman kilala.

    Mean na kung mean. :p
