Inventory of My Facebook Friends

It has been a long time since I looked at my entire list of Facebook Friends.  Here are some statistics about my 530 "friends"

146 - Never Met
45 - Met only once
190 - have not seen in at least 5 years

Sadly some of these people have passed away.

People interpret Facebook Friend differently.  In the early days of social networking, I tried to make friends with anyone, but as time went on I became more selective.  The biggest category (36%) is people I've met, but haven't seen in at least 5 years.  Most likely, I'll never see many again.

My friends fall into the following categories:

  • Professional Acquaintances (librarians and NJIT people)
  • People I knew in elementary school, high school, or college.
  • Radio Enthusiasts
  • Bob Dylan fans
  • Baseball fans
  • Family
  • Lee's friends from high school

In recent years I have met several Facebook Friends for the first time at Citi Field.  When I arrive, I state that I am at the game and ask if anyone I know is here.
