i have a love/hate relationship with facebook.

it has been great getting back in touch with friends from HS & college, old church friends, family friends. this past i really do like. without facebook i most likely would have never found & talked to these people.

the negative (or atleast for me) is seeing/reading all the gossip that goes on locally among the teenagers. too much so i have basically quit facebook, maybe getting on once or twice a month.

but i'm moving in a week & so i have a question...
-i can delete people?
-if so, how?
-and if i do delete, will it show up all on pages what i did???

i just want to get rid of  a few people that i don't talk to - if i don't talk to them now then they don't need to be on my page finding out info about me!

I checked under facebook FAQ and it says go to your friends list and on the right hand side of that particular friend click on the X. It will ask if you are sure you want to delete them. Facebook says they will NOT be notified. they would have to search through their friends and see that you were missing.
I have loved getting back in touch with all my best friends from high school and all my relatives that I never get to see. Hearing what they are up to and seeing pics of their kids. It is pretty neat!
Dylan's preschool teacher just found me! It was so cool...
So delete all of the teenagers and start again!

I ended up feeling the same way as you about facebook. When I was brand new to it, I accepted all the friends requests that came in not really knowing what that was. And then ended up finding out things about our church from a current pastor and a former pastor's wife when they exchanged information. It was a great big gossip fest and I called him and told him everyone just saw what he wrote and that he needed to be more careful.
That really turned me off to Facebook and I got off the network. But that's my experience with Facebook......and I'm pretty sure you can delete who you want from your list.....hope that works out for you!

People delete me all the time - I don't know who. But they do.

You can delete people...and NO it won't show up on their page.

I always wondered that too, since FB tells everyone when you sneeze pretty much, but they don't notify when you delete someone.

Just go to your list of friends, and you can just delete there.

Are we friends on FB yet?? I don't think we are! Gasp!!

YOu can delete people and they wont get a message saying you delted them. I just did this recently because of gossip as well.

I am not on facebook, my husband really wants me to join, we moved out of state 10 months ago and wants me to stay connected to our friends. I am afraid I will be on it all the time!! Maybe I will give it a whirl?!

Everyone has told you already how to delete. I do it all the time especially when people start cussing in there update. Makes me cringe. AND ummmm, why aren't we friends? Add me!

You can also HIDE people! That is my favorite app. I only keep my close friends on my homepage. So the "status abusers" I do not have to know about, but I still like to have the connection to the youth and other church, old high school friends, and family.

not only can you delete people, but you can fix it where they cant even find you should they search for you...but I cant remember how I did this on a few folks...I have the same problem with facebook, but i finally have gotten it to where its a little better....
