Spring cleaning your friend/blog lists?

Do you have the practice of spring cleaning your friend lists in FB? Or even those blogs you used to follow? And other relevant stuff in other social media sites?


Lately I receive so many friend requests in FB, but the strange thing is I don't even know who they are, so I just ignore them.
I think most of us will only accept friends whom we know, as we do not want to expose too much of our information/photos to outsiders.

And on and off, I will spring clean my friend lists and remove those friends whom I think is no longer active, or those who really have less contacts with me. Same goes to my blog rolls here --->
Will start to remove those who don't come and visit me anymore although I comment at their blog quite frequently.

Ok, got to start spring cleaning now! :p

Have a wonderful day ahead!

  2. Same here. Some accounts already closed, I still did not know...or maybe they have unfriended me for some reason or other. Same in my blogroll too - some blogs already as dead as a door nail, no longer active, but still there. Lazy lah...have to go and check one by one.

    3. Oh, don't have your FB so don't know how active you are..

      A year? Wow that's too long, for me, if that person is not active for 1-2 months onwards, I will delete already.

      Ah yes yes, not just FB or blog, Whatsapp/WeChat even sms-es I will also do spring cleaning!

    1. I have friends who befriend those they never met before or those whom they don't know at all in FB, no wonder their friends list can be a few thousands of friends.

      I won't accept friend requests of those "friends" whom I don't know or have not met before, it is to protect my privacy

      Delete
    2. True, we must be careful in accepting people, if don't know one, better don't accept.

      Delete
  14. me too. those non active and unknown ppl, i will kick him or her out too.

    ReplyDelete
  15. 我已经把很多不认识的人delete,也很少add新朋友,因为我想保留一点隐私,虽然说fb没有隐私可言,但是至少不add这些不认识的人,他们就无法看到我的东西:)

  16. Oh I do that all the time. That's why my personal FB account only has 100+ friends instead of millions! And you notice my blogroll is always trimmed and replaced here and there..

    1. It's a good practice! We don't need a million friends in FB, what's the point right? Better keep those we know personally...
