I have around five thousand Facebook friends. I now find that this site is more rewarding.
Since I've written books and have Facebook pages on them, I can't close my account unless I get someone else to take the pages over.
I'm definitely not asking anyone to take my pages over and will keep my Facebook account open, BUT I won't spend much time there and give my time here.
I'm finding you folks wonderful and it's more affirming of my particular cosmology, well, whaT-everrrrrrrrrrrr (my best Valley Goil'
5,000 fb friends?!? Actually, I haven't counted mine, but I think it is several hundred. I just saw a fascinating neuro-science/psychology clip on youtube that points to a lot of evidence that our human frontal cortexes limit our ability to sustain "meaningful" relationships to around 150 people, give or take 50 or so. So FB "friends" are really a misnomer. Cyber-chats can develop into true friendships, but generally do not without extra effort. That reminds me, I have a Match.com first date coming up. Wish me luck. LOL
