A "how to" guide to organizing your facebook friends.

Now that I am an active member of Facebook (and the LDS church - not necessarily mutually exclusive. I have noticed that a good LDS facebooker will make many references to the church as possible.) I have a plethora of suggestions for Mr. Ralph Facebook to make his site better. I see that you can now divide your friends up into categories of "friends" and "family". I would also suggest the following to categorize facebook friends even more:

"People that just want my friendship to up their total friends count."

"People I have no clue who they are, but I accepted their friendship to up my total friend count."

"People I loath. (But still want as friends to up my friend count)"

"People that loath me. (But want my friendship for previously mentioned friend count.)"

"People that didn't want anything to do with me in High School"

"Mystery meat"

"Friends that it would be awkward to see during the week if I did not accept their friendship."

"Sympathy friends."

"Friends??? When did that happen?"

"Some guy that I talked to for a few minutes in line at the Sportsman's Warehouse"

"Churchy folk that I hope don't read my wall"


"Friends with cats"

"Friends named Bill"

"Friends that like Neil Diamond."

"Friends that hate Neil Diamond. (Not really friends at all.)"

"Does that person still exist? (For older friends.)"

Just a few I came up with - but it's an ongoing project I am working on submitting to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
Before I get your angry comments, any person that reads this blog I would put in the category of "actual friends".

I have a lot of church friends who I hope don't read my wall. Kind of sad.

So what kind of facebook friend am I?

Stacy - Given that I speak to you on a daily basis and usually do not regret it - and the fact that you are a Ute fan, I am going to go ahead and say you are a "true friend". Unless of course, you think otherwise. I can put you elsewhere.
