First let me just say that if I deleted you as a friend on Facebook, it was not because I don’t like you or I think you are mean or you smell or well you get the idea.
Today, following in the footsteps of Michael Hyatt, I started on a new plan to focus my time and energy and to bring the time I spend on the internet under control.
Now if you know me, you know I spend a great deal of my time on the internet. I don’t just surf the web and waste away my time frivolously, I run online businesses, I help others with their websites, I develop applications, not to mention that I do my personal things like pay my bills online too. So as you can imagine I spend a great deal of my time online.
So why delete friends on Facebook?
Well I am doing multiple things, but I figured I would start with Facebook as it is the easiest to consolidate. I am going to use Facebook for my Family and “REAL” friends.
But wait, I thought I was your real friend?
Well in essence if you were one of my Facebook friends then we did have some type of connection at one point, however I am now limiting my friends on Facebook to close personal friends and family that I interact with in real life and not just on the internet.
This has nothing to do with you, I am trying to share with everyone, but I don’t want to share everything with everyone. I used to post family photos to the web in general and then Facebook came along, now I post all my family photos there for my “Friends” to see.
I don’t want to share all my private things with the world. If you look back in the archives here on my blog you will see that I used to post a lot about my family, but once I got on to Facebook it all went there. Facebook makes it so darn easy to upload 200 photos at a time and not to mention the security of knowing that only certain people can view them.
But I still want to keep in touch with you, how do I do it?
That is simple, I am not going into hiding or anything, you can always check here on my blog to see what’s going on.
You can contact me through my contact form here.
You can follow me on twitter.
You can become a fan on my Facebook page, ( Just like Michael Hyatt, I hate the word fan, maybe Facebook should change it to buddy or something).
If we have a business relationship or would like one join my LinkedIn network.
Like I stated earlier, I am trying to focus more on my business and streamline my online presence so there is not so much upkeep.
I do appreciate all my “Friends” and hope that you do understand and will decide to follow me in some other way so that we can still keep in touch.
Here’s to friendship,
