OK, so I was a bit bored tonight and started to think about how I met/know my facebook friends. I don't have a huge number of friends on there (compared to some people I know!), so it was a fairly easy task for me to break them down into categories. I'm curious to see how others compare (percentages not compulsory, neither is using the same categories!)...
I currently have a total of 88 friends, who can be broken down as follows:
Family - 7 (7.95%) From airliners.net - 5 (5.68%) From other websites - 7 (7.95%) Old school friends - 21 (23.86%) Friends that I have worked with - 37 (42.05%) Friends of friends - 4 (4.55%) Random adds - 4 (4.55%) Other friends - 3 (3.41%)
If you're bored too, have a think about yours!!

Everyone on my FB are only the people I know real well, with exceptions of maybe 1 or 2 people. I just don't add anyone to my FB. I have to really trust certain people before they are added to my FB because I have family AND co-workers on it. I don't tolerate drama, inappropriate stuff or any BS on it.
I recently trashed my MySpace last week. It was no real use to me at all since I am never over there. MySpace......just didn't do it for me.

All but 28 of the 325 on my list are family, friends for a long time, or friends from school. Of the 28, almost all of them are either professional contacts with whom I occasionally keep in touch or friends or family of other friends who I met and talked with. There are only two people on the list with whom I do not believe I have ever talked (another Aston Villa fan and a student member of the New York State Bar Association).

I have around 200 friends on FB, all but a few are people I know in real life. Most are university friends, class mates, people from the student radio station, and the next big group I suppose are old friends from high school.
Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.
