Time to cull my facebook friends list

I don't get on facebook much. once a day maybe. Got on there this morning and 90% of the posts are someone regurgitating what someone else posted. Listen up, I'm not going to change my status to that because god will save a kitten if I do.

I require a deposit before someone gets on my friend's list. They forfeit their deposit if they leave a mess on my wall.

That reminds me, Couch you still owe me 10 bucks.

Fair enough. But my often-inspirational toilet humour is above board, right?

Cheers!

The worst are those messages that use peer pressure or try to guilt people into thinking they're less of a friend ... "... bet only 9% of my friends will repost ...".

I want to know why God is going to care if I forward something to 10 of my closest friends.

Those "share this if you want to find a cure for cancer" type posts are like the new age chain letter; only idiots do them.

I have a bunch of idiots as facebook friends then. I'm pretty sure it's all the wife's crazy redneck cousins in Kentucky.

Facebook is so funny to me.

The tech press all fawns over Facebook and all of its Big Data management stuff... it takes on a whole different meaning when you realize that 50% (or more!) of this "Big Data" is made up of people posting about farts and breakfast and useless minutiae and chain letters.
