I'm normally on the "don't feel bad about not friending someone" side of Facebook discussions, and I definitely still feel that way, but I need some help with what to say when people who I've ignored on FB ask me about it in person.
I only have 21 FB friends because I'm extremely selective about who I'll friend -- so far it's only close family and very close friends. I actually went through and defriended several people recently -- a few were people from high school with whom I exchanged the quick "Hey, how's it going" when we first friended each other, but we never said another word to each other, and a few were people that I see occasionally (my hairdresser for example), but again, we'd never exchanged a personal word to each other on FB, and that's just not the kind of site I want to have.
Anyway, I'm a little unsure of how to respond if those people realize that I unfriended them and say something to me, or if new people who try to friend me ask why I haven't accepted. For the latter, I'm thinking something like, "Yeah, sorry, I hardly ever check it and mostly just use it to share pictures with my family" would work fine, but for the former (where I defriended people) I'm not sure what to say. Any thoughts?
