I’ve done a bit of tidying up of my account on Facebook today. I replied to some messages and requests, updated my profile and, yes, trimmed my friends list.
As a result, and so not to offend anyone I may have removed, I thought I would post the note I wrote about social networking for my personal website here:
A note about social networking
Managing your online life can become complicated, so I have developed my own particular way of dealing with social networking sites and services.
I am on Facebook but I use it in a very restricted way. I use it for close friends and social things. Friend requests from people I haven’t actually met are likely to be ignored!
If you are just interested in keeping track of what I am up to the best approach is to follow me on Twitter.
Professional contacts and former work colleagues should connect with me through LinkedIn.
