How many friends / followers do you have? Has it ever been a challenge or even an addiction to see how many you can amass? Does the head count of online friends and followers determine your Klout, among your friends and affiliates?
I mean let’s be honest, how many times have you decided to follow or accept someone based on their current ‘social net.’ You know, if someone on twitter follows you and they have a billion followers then your hesitation is excused and you solemnly hit the follow tab. So how do the newbie’s build up their social net? If people are not as eclectic of ‘new friends’ as in the past, and becoming more selective today, is there still a chance for new social users to catch the wave, or is there slim to no chance this late in the game?
More friends than you can ever manage, but the hunger game and excitement of new culture, intent and social networking is infectious. The thought that, if you didn’t – you could miss something great, something unfound or something unrealized. Social networking often demands you give as much as you’re getting, or fear the unthinkable, an unfriending affair.

Dilemma; the unfriending, unfollowing and axing of past acquaintances. Social networking information is a collection of people’s thoughts and opinion on trending and historical events. So how do you decide who to unfriend? Are you afraid you may miss a good point, comment or snip of info that drew you to accept or friend ‘that person’ originally or do you just cut and snip until you can actually remember all your ‘friends’ unique personas? The more friends the better, but managing them and giving equal time and consideration is challenging.
