I agree. Yes I respect that we can choose to or not to talk and interact with who ever. But when I see private profiles, or people have a long ass list of requirements in order to send a request I laugh because that's kind of anti social behavior.A lot of times I messaged people and never got a response which is crazy because they accepted the request. The experience may be different for others but for me people don't really seem to interact.
Every day when i open my TN profile I see friend requests. I decline most invitations if they dont have face and body pics. I would not call the people I add as FRIENDS, obviously to be friends with somebody it is way more than just a click in a website. Anyway some of the people that I allow to be part of my friend list seem to enjoy my pics and I dont see anything wrong with that. Also exchanging messages with interesting people is always nice.
what percentage of the "friends" that you have in TN do you chat or exchange emails with?
Depends. If you're asking how many have I EVER exchanged messages with, that would be 100%. But if you're asking how many I message every day or every week or even every month, that would be close to 0%.
I don't care much for chat rooms. I do most of my communicating in the groups or main forum. And if something comes up there that I'd like to say or ask in person, I'll just shoot them a message. Being on my friends list isn't necessary for that. Same with receiving a message from someone.
Basically, I've never seen the point of collecting friends to impress anyone. Big numbers don't impress me so I assume it wouldn't impress my real friends either. I tend to go with either people I'm more likely to meet someday or people with a mutual interest (like boats, or woodworking, etc.) or people in the same Group as me (assuming they're in the group with an actual interest in it). Or people who are just likable and friendly people with no hidden agenda. And, so far, I've never had to un-friend anyone... mainly because I try to get to know people well enough before I friend them in the first place. And for that, I put even more emphasis on their posting history than I do their profile. So far, so good.
I don't normally refuse a friend request and I try to acknowledge all who may comment on something on my profile or something I posted. I have more "friends" then I could ever communicate with on a regular basis but I would think that I have regular communication with about 10%. If I equated that with the number of people I know in my church and the number I regularly communicate with it is about the same.
I do go through my Friends List and delete those that haven't logged in in a long time. There are some that I chat with on Skype on a regular basis. I find the chat room difficult to follow.
I keep my list manageable. For the most part, I try to check in with my friends fairly regularly. I will not accept a request if we have zero chance of staying in touch or better yet meet. With that said I would guess that about 70% of my friends list I am in regular communication with via email or physically getting together. Made some awesome friends here in AZ!
I am selective with who I friend. If it is a woman whose picture looks like she is seeking something other that a a chat, definitely not.
I am also leery of anyone with more friends than posts.
I don't do the chat room, but do exchange messages with some of my friends.
I initially assumed that "friends" just wanted to follow my posts and accepted them all. I never got round to weeding them out so now I have no proper friends on TN at all.
What?!?! You must have lost me buried among your improper friends! I don't follow all of your posts but I spotted this one. And I'm quite proper! Even by British standards LOL!
