Friends list... [Nov. 9th, 2006|05:00 pm]
The Love Bug
According to LogJam, I have 143 users listed on my journal. This number - disturbingly - does not include communities, of which there are a further 71, and 17 syndicated feeds.

I have a filter, which I use regularly at work, containing 88 users/communities/feeds, and I'm finding that I'm using this filter more and more for general browsing at home too.

This tells me that my friends list is too big to manage.

I will, this evening, be cutting my friends list down considerably, by removing communities that I don't participate in, removing feeds that I don't really read, and by removing users whom I don't really interact with.

If you find yourself gone, and you'd rather I added you back - particularly in view of the fact that I will be posting friends only more often from now on - then please let me know.

This is not personal, it's practical. :o)

I'm not sure how you lot keep up with this thing... I struggle and my friends list is tiny in comparison!

That's why I had to cut down... I let new people in, and the list just grows to unmanageable proportions.

Most of my friends list content came from feeds and communities that I just wasn't reading or participating in.

I probably get about a third of the friends list traffic I was getting before the cut.

I can cope with that! :o)
