The Facebook purge.

    I am tired of seeing people I don’t care about. Their post are of things that just don’t interest me, or they are posting controversial things in order to get attention. Being tired of wasting my time shuffling through their post, I have decided to hold a purge. This is where I will delete anyone that is no longer active or people that honestly don’t care about me or what I’m doing.
     A few months ago, I decided to make  my Facebook solely for promoting my blog. Though that has been happening, and I have falling into using it for my communications, I want to slowly pull it back the other direction, making it my promoting tool, which eventually will become my blog page, entirely. With this being said, why would I waste my friends list on people that don’t even read these post?
    I understand that Facebook is for friendships and is usually used to connect with old friends and distant family. This means that I use it wrong, but at the same time, it can be used to share ones work and to get yourself into new crowds. This is what I’m trying to do. I don’t really care about being friends on Facebook, or finding out the latest news about my ex friends. I truly only care about connecting with fans and showing those, who care, that I truly love them. I don’t have time for the drama, nor would I get into it, even if I did have the time. Also, the friends that I thought would try to connect with me, again, are those who don’t want to talk, or are those who are no longer active.
      After weeks of looking through a bunch of garbage, I decided to do something. I like the idea of a purge. One night where anything goes, it all sounds so delightful, besides the fact that I would die in the first hour. I decided to take that idea and bring it to my friends list. Giving myself one day, I am allowed to delete anyone. I did give a few people a break, by having them like a certain post, but everyone else was fair game. Out of 300 friends, only 30 liked the post, meaning 280 of my friends were allowing me to leave, which is fine by me. It has only been 5 hours and I am down to 280 friends.
     This is a fun way to blow off steam, also it helps clear up a lot of my news feed. Either way, it ends tomorrow. I plan on cutting a lot more and starting over with new friends. I am enjoying this way too much, you guys should try it.
