So in my previous two posts I am downsizing my friends list to 200-235 maybe 250 at the most. I had 409 friends on facebook in the begining but now I dont have as much friends as I did before but more then 250. I am doing the phone contact policy as in if your not comfortble to text me then I have no need to have you on facebook. So I am trying to get peoples numbers and Im wondering how long I should wait for someone to give me their number before I take them off. suggestions???? opinions???

I mean some people don’t check their Facebook every day; maybe give them a week?
But at the same time, there are not a lot of people I would give my phone number to but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want to stay connected with them on Faecbook.

@MademoiselleL: +1. at least 80% of the friends i have on fb are either friends from high school, who i don’t have and won’t have numbers for. i use facebook to keep in touch with people from school. do i want them all to have my phone number? nope. would i need their numbers? nope.
though, OP, you’re much younger than i am. so i see why you have that policy.

@outgoingcutie15: If having a phone number is an absolute dealbreaker to remain on your friends list, then decide a time frame and take them off (maybe a week). If they later seem like a someone you’d like to add back, add them back.

I have around 500 people on my facebook and 18 months ago I moved from the UK to Australia. I posted a status asking for people to inbox me their numbers so I had them on my new phone as I’d like to stay in touch!
2 people replied.
At least I saw the funny side!

The reason I am downsizing my Facebook friends is because I had so much drama and I don’t like people judging me. What I want on Facebook as far as friends go are people who are truly my friends. The phone policy shows if they really want to maintain contact with me and remain friends in my opinion. That’s how I feel.

Lol, I just went through and got rid of everyone I hadn’t spoken to in person or online for over a year. Easy done.

Can’t you just evaluate based on what you know about them rather than condition it on phone numbers?

This is… strange. What if someone who causes drama gives you their number? Will you still keep them as a FB friend? Why not just delete the ones who cause drama? Or ones you haven’t talked to in the last couple years?

I would just delete people you don’t think are your friends. They can always add you again, or you can add them again. No big deal

Please do not revolve your life around Facebook. Better yet, don’t judge your friendships or self worth based on how many friends you have on Facebook or who “likes” your posts and pictures. Step away from the Internet and go live your life.

@outgoingcutie15: why not minimize what you share. I’ve had a fb account for years and have had exactly zero drama. I don’t put much personal info out there. I don’t share the ins and outs of my day. Just an occasional link or funny observation. I really can’t imagine what sort of drama I would even get involved in. This seems a bit immature.
