I think I’m an online social snob.

So the other day i turned down another facebook friend request. I have to wonder. Am I an online social snob? I know a fair amount of people. Most I don’t really care talking to by voice. I prefer txting them. But when it comes to the web I tend to be more exclusive. It’s not like the person was someone I didn’t know. Although at first I didn’t remember them. Had to ask a mutual friend. Rather I have no urge to just add people. I don’t share my pics with non-friends. And I want to be able to post semi-personal or private things as my status if i want. Not cause it’s anything bad or deeply soul rendering. But I just don’t want to add people to add them, and just cause I know you why should you be privy to my inner thoughts. In fact from time to time I will go through and delete people who don’t comment on my posts, ever have anything interesting to say that I want to post on, or someone who I really never say anything interesting too. Recently I deleted someone who did not respond back to a message thread we had going and than did not ever answer the question I posted on his wall. Mind you he had been on many times since, responded to others so it’s not like he just had not be on FB. I don’t apply that rule to family or old friends. They get a pass. But in this world of casual friendship and friends list full of people you will never met or actually get to know I’m proud to have the reverse. Instead of trying to see how many people I can friend and show how popular I am I hope to never be over 99 friends and am currently not close.

If this is what being an online social snob is like than I’m quite happy to be one.
