Social media is so much a part of all of our lives, and people are putting more and more importance on their frienship status based a website..
Bees, when u get defriened or blocked does it upset you or do u just move on becuase its JUST Facebook?

@Kandiss16: Hmm I can’t really say one way or another, I’ve never been defriended. I pretty much use facebook as an email address with lots of pictures.

How do you even know you’ve been de-friended? I wouldn’t even notice …

Apart from one Drama Queen who blocked me and then, rather stupidly, made a vicious public announcement about my various alleged shortcomings that of course I couldn’t see, I don’t think I’d notice if anyone defriended me. I don’t even know how many friends I’ve got in the first place!

I wouldn’t say upset, but depending on the person it can sort of bum me out. Like I’ve had one or two girls that I was good friends with in college unfriend me and I’ve been a little disappointed. We haven’t had much contact post college (maybe a happy birthday here or there), but we were on good terms, and it’s not like they deleted me in a mass FB overhaul. I’ve seen that they are still friends with other people from other people they didn’t know as well, or my SO. They met my SO through me, and didn’t know him very well–why keep him as a friend but unfriend me? So it makes it feel a bit more personal, even if it wasn’t. (it’s totally possible they started doing a clean up, got bored, and didn’t finish)
ETA: if a good friend of mine that I’m regularly in contact with randomly unfriended me…THAT would be upsetting!

Oh my god I *wish* 90% of the people on my FB would unfriend me. I have so many people that I know for a fact do not like me floating around on there.
One in particular: she’s married to a friend of ours that we love and I used to like her alot…and then someone else forwarded me some text messages she’d sent saying some rather unladylike things about me. She doesnt know I know and Boyfriend or Best Friend doesnt want me to unfriend her because the husband is a good buddy of his and she would absolutely never let her husband talk to him again.

I mostly have people on Facebook who I actually interact with IRL. Not many “friends” that I knew in HS. So if one of those people unfriended me, I prob would not notice, or would not care. If a family member or actual friend unfreinded me, I would know something was up. I don’t even know how many FB friends I have (not many).

I’m voting “other” on this one. If it’s just any old Joe (or Jane) Schmo that I know as an acquaintance or casual friend, it’s no skin off my back.
That said, I really get my hair up if/when someone who I consider a good friend to delete me as a friend from Facebook without a conversation first. I liken it to breaking up with someone via text message… If someone has meant so much to you/been close with you for so long, I think there really ought to be some kind of adult conversation going on. Otherwise, it just comes off as passive aggressive.

@Kandiss16: I don’t have Facebook because I think it is stupid. I can’t imagine being upset by something so trivial and juvenile as Facebook friends. Really? People care about this? Wow. My 8 year old niece might too :-

My aunt/godmother unfriended me bc of some problems with my parents.. she was friends with all of my other cousins and kepts coming up on my reccomended friends.. she ended up blocking me (maybe because i kept commeting on statuses that she did).. it hurt at first, but then i decided its FACEBOOK and doesnt hold enough significance in my life to be upset over..
funny thing, this happened 5 years ago and she heard i was getting married, i magically became un blocked, on the day of my bridal shower. All of my other aunts left her house to come to my shower. The only reason i found out is bc she tagged them in some pictures and it showed up in my feed… i found that very interesting.. i hav been asked a couple times if she is invited to the wedding, nope.. not bc of faceboook either, she obviosly did not want contact with me AT ALL. and has never met FH so no.
lol reading this makes me seem more upset than i think i am..

@Kandiss16: it depends on who it is i guess.

Nope. I don’t do drama. If you delete me you had a reason. Whatever it is – I don’t really care enough to cause a stink…
