Are You In?

We all know social networking is a numbers game.

The number of friends you have in Facebook and Friendster is a testament of how popular you are.

This twisted notion is probably the main reason why you accept friend requests from people you don’t even know in real life.

What pisses Raft3r off is when someone deletes him from their friends’ list for no apparent reason whatsoever.

I know. It’s nothing personal. But no one deletes Raft3r without just cause.

I have no interest whatsoever in the private affairs of others. I got my own life to live.

But Facebook, after all, is a numbers game. A deletion is still a fatal blow.

Anyone? Add me up, please?

I'm in! hehehe

I'd prefer to have few friends on my account on Friendster, Multiply and Facebook as long as I know all of them. These sites, for me, serve as a means of communication more than as a gauge of popularity. :p

len is right (and I'm left? hehehe)

wenno naman kung mataas ang numero ng friends eh wala naman silang tienilin sa iyo, as in ni magpadala ng smiley wala.

ako nagpi-facebook para mag-sagot ng question.

nangmu-multiply para pag-imbakan ng mga digi-pix

at nagpi-friendster para.... ano nga ba? ah galugarin yung mga long-lost friends - classmates- crush - relatives - saka pwedeng pagtripan. hehehe

Beth said...

Ikaw na nga nagsabi, mdaming nag-add sa isang tao sa Facebook, without even knowing kung sino ung ina-add nila. E bka un ang nangyari sa yo. In-add ka then dinelete ka after kasi narealize niya na di ka niya kilala.

Hwhhhhattt? Si Rafter di kilala?! :)

anyway, I have a Facebook account pero di ko naman naaasikaso e, gusto ko snang maki-in dito pero ni wla akong time magbukas. Pero add kita agad pag mejo nagkatime ha? Ikaw pa! :)

PS: curious talaga ako sa last message mo ha? hayy...bhala ka na, bsta you take care always!

Wendy said...

Out ako. I have friendster and multiply accounts na di ko nauupdate. Wala akong Facebook. Iniisip ko kasi, pareho lang iaadd ko na friends sa Friendster and Facebook.

Raft3r said...

wendy, Totoo yon. Same ole faces. hehe

eden said...

ok, ayan na add na kita sa FS..hehehe.. and see you there!

Lawstude said...

i have facebook but only because of the texas holdem poker. got any chips?

atticus said...

hehehe. may mga tinanggal na rin ako sa facebook ko. iyong hindi ko "close." suplada ako eh. i don't feel like sharing stuff with too many people. shy ako eh.

add mo ako. friends kami ni scud.

Andy Briones said...

Ano ba yang Face Book na yan? Hindi ako marunong niyan. Seriously, wala pa akong account, ehehehe. Yung Friendster rin hindi ko pa nasusubukan. Hindi naman halata na anti-social ako? :-)

Raft3r said...

eden, You're the best!

lawstude, I got plenty! Hehe

atticus, Wow. At least, tayo close. Hehe

andy briones, Gagawa kita ha? Ako bahala. Hehe

Andy Briones said...

Huwag mo kong gawan ng Face Book account, baka ma-adik ako jan, ehehehe. Alam mo naman ako, madaling ma-adik sa mga bagay na ka-adik-adik. In other words, adik ako.

Raft3r said...

andy briones, Naku. Adik din ako. Hehe

Coriander Dreams said...

I don't mind the numbers going down, basta siguraduhin lang nya na dinelete nya account nya! Ang nakakainis pag makita ko pa din account nya, tapos private and cannot be viewed profile!! :X Hindi na kami friends.. Hahaha!

Raft3r said...

coriander dreams, Nyahaha. Tumpak ka dyan. Hehe

The Scud said...

ginawang popularity contest ang social sites. nyahaha. suplado ako. ignore lahat ng friend requests/invites na di ko kilala. at blocked lahat ng may nagawang masama kay scud. hehe.

Raft3r said...

the scud, Nyahaha. I am so glad we're friends!

the donG said...

hehehe... i agree with that. at least they should inform you though it's their predicament. but it goes down to respect.

add kita.

Raft3r said...

the dong, Thanks! The best ka talaga!

bisaja said...

Ay! Nasa friends list kita kasi I had a request from you after I commented from your Yummy Friend's photo. Remember the huge Palin cut-out? Haha! Anong cut-out. Nyahaha! Basta yun. Alam mo na yun.

Raft3r said...

bisaja, Hehe. How could I forget?!

Bernadette Anne said...

Social networking is a numbers game and an excuse to know about other people's lives and to let other people know about our lives.

What is funny is that some people invite and accept so many people and then they apply those privacy settings restricting access to some people.

Not only are we content to use these social networking sites to know about people and people to know us, but some people actually want to know who view their profile.

If that isn't a testament of popularity contest, I do not know what is!

Raft3r said...

bernadette anne, I dunno half of the people on mine. Nyahaha. I hardly add, though. Sila madalas mag-invite satin. Hehe
