There are a lot of things I really loathe about Facebook. While it is a good place to connect and share things with my actual friends, there’s always the strange undercurrent of lurkers – people I haven’t seen or talked to in as much as a decade trying to keep up with me by watching status updates and the like.
One such person sent me an invitation to look at a page on Facebook titled “Find out who deleted you.” This may have been around for awhile, but that doesn’t make it any less ridiculous. If you need a script to tell you when you’ve been removed from a “friend’s” page, you probably shouldn’t have friended them in the first place. And what do you plan to do now that you know? Rage at them? Send them a nasty note? Track them down?
As great as all of our tools for connectivity are, there is a threshold of overconnect for me.
