#106: can we not be friends?

For the past few weeks or so, as I scroll my timeline on Facebook, I began to ask myself, "Why am I seeing posts from people that I personally do not know?"

Oh right... years ago I would accept requests from random strangers. *Remember... adding people was the IN thing then? Malaysians generally have the most number of "friends" as compared to our friends from the West*

But you know what? Social Media isn't what it used to be. You can see haters and keyboard warriors just ruin it.

I am also at a stage where I prefer to share my personal life (especially on Facebook) with people I actually know. Don't get me wrong, some social media friends have become real-life friends. Even if we have not met in person, but there's some sort of trust because we see and comment on each other's posts.

I am talking about these few silent stalkers. They're on your timelime but you do not interact with each other's content.

Plus I just feel Facebook is reserved for those selected few. If I want to share something public, Instagram is it.

So with that... it's time to click Unfriend.
