Hi, Facebook Friend!

It's been a long time since I last posted here on myLot. Have been quite busy. It feels good to be back. I've been listing some of the topics that come across my mind while I was away. Here's one of them. So, one time I saw a classmate of mine from high school at a small mall near where I live. We weren't that close as she was one of the quiet ones. We are friends on Facebook but we only have minimal contact. Like we tag each other on old pictures that we post and such. So when I saw her, I pretended that I didn't see her and I don't think she saw me anyway. I saw her at another mall a couple of weeks later, and I still didn't say hi or anything. I keep thinking that we might have nothing to talk about. Now, let's me ask you. If you have a Facebook friend with whom you have only a little contact (thru Facebook or other means), if you saw them in person, would you say him to all of them? If yes, what would you say? In my defense, I didn't say hi because I knew that all we would say to each other is just that, Hi! Am I a snob because of that?

That's why I closed my fb account,just because of the reason you mentioned.I used to have a lot of friends there,maybe 400 people.And the truth is that I have nothing to say to them if i see them in person.Fb gives you the feeling of friendship but it's a fake one.

You've got lots of friends. Oh, wait, I have 345. LOL! Well, Facebook is not really necessary. My boyfriend refuses to have an fb account. He swears he will never open one. I keep it because I'm just really nosy about other people's lives. And I really want to keep in touch with those who I WILL talk to when I see them. It's cheaper than to text or call them. Especially those overseas. Thanks for your response!

I only have about 135 FB friends, many of them overseas...but if I see one of my FB friends I do say "hi" if we see eachother and then depending on how the other party reacts either move on or stay and chat abit. It's easy for me to come up with new topics so it's easy for me to talk with someone else, despite me being actually a silent shy girl
