    222, wow, that is way more than I thought!  I probably should clean that list out.

    selective… after university deleted all the randoms from high school and uni you sit beside in class and ‘friend’ – and can’t delete in case you end up having another class together!

    if we’re not friends in ‘real-life’ you dont need to creep me 🙂

    427, I could probably get rid of 20 or so but I really do know everyone from high school, college, grad school, work and family.

    My list is in the 700s I think, but it needs a serious cleaning. If/when I do sort through it, I’d expect it to be closer to 200-300. I’m the first to admit that not everyone on my “friends” list is an actual friend.

    I have 550. I recently went through and cleaned it up a bit.

    Basically if I can’t place your name or face right away, you are off the list. 

    The majority of my list is people from college. I was a sophomore in college when facebook came out, so I have a lot of “I recognize your face from college” aquaintances on there.

    I also post almost nothing on facebook (aside from photos from time to time) so I’m not too concerned with who sees my profile.

    356, wow! That’s more than I thought. I probably should do some housecleaning. My friending requirement is that I have to actually know them.

    If a “friend” does not post or respond to any of my posts within a year, I drop them. I do not  need fake friends/acquaintances to prove I am popular! I only have 90 and I personally know ALL of them.

    I have 122. I’m not super strict as far as who’s on my list but I have to atleast know the person. I will not accept invites from complete strangers or friends of friends who I’ve never met. The only “strangers” that I have on there are a few lovely ladies from WB but I know them well enough to know that they’re not 40 year old men who are living in their parents basements. I had a lot more years ago (probably 400+) but I cleaned out my list after random people started commenting on my status’. If I have to actually think about who you are and where I know you from, you’re gone!
