Nothing wrong with that.

No that's fine. I have less friends than you like 130, and have 5 photos of myself. No biggie. However I do write on my wall a lot. Just tell people you only like to add close friends. A lot of my friends have over 1,000 and it makes me think I'm doing something wrong. But really who cares?

Who cares how many facebook friends you have. That doesn't say anything about you

I have one friend and zero photos and nothing going on on my wall.

If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

Very few facebook friends slips a note to others that you're of a reserved nature, but that's about it, and that is not necessarily bad; at all.

I have 40 "friends", and I usually get 1-4 likes for the Things I post. I don't give it any second thoughts, I just have it to see what is up in the lives of the few people I actually give a Little bit of a **** about.

I know what you mean, I only have 5 profile photos on there, 3 in my room and 2 of me outside alone. I make no status updates, not that I have anything to talk about anyway. I actually added a few SA people and they even asked why I don't have any pictures of me out with friends. I only really keep my account to stay in touch with my sister, who has 1000s of photos and is posting daily on it.

when i had my facebook i had 60 friends and only 1-2 real pictures of me for profile pics. I normally didn't use my real picture for my profile pic. The only reason I had that many friends was because people from school kept adding me.

Exactly my case, I have around 400 friends and I only know about 50 of them in real life and I'm not forever alone anymore, there are also people with 2000 friends and only know about 50 of them, there is noting embarassing about this, nobody cares about the number of friends, usually people care about like friends ratio, and there is nothing embarassing on having a few facebook friends, why would you think that ?

I have over 200 "friends"

I only know like 50 of them though and the rest just go to my school.


I have thousands of photos too, but only 10 of them show me or my life. The rest are just funny photos that I collected over the years.

I don't see why that would be embarrassing. Sounds like a standard number of friends and photos for a typical FB page...

I deactivated mine. I had 4 or 5 friends when I deactivated (neighbor, online friend and three family members). And only one or two photos of myself, with like a hundred of my pets, and my cat was always the avatar/main picture.

I used to have more "friends" but they were all just random people from my old school that I never talked to once in my life. They just recognized my name and added me I guess. I eventually deleted them all because.. why the hell would I want these random people (who probably thought I was a freak in HS) to see my page and pictures.

I had 120 friends at most, mostly girls of course. My feed wasn't active at all, which made me feel worthless. I would feel annoying if i messaged someone or commented on their photos. I would feel left out seeing everyone's adventures in their photo albums. I had no photos of my own to post. I rarely posted statuses, because i felt no one cared. When i did, i would feel like such a loser if nobody liked it. Logging into facebook triggered my depression like no other.

So i deactivated my account a long time ago. I still need a good excuse as to why i don't have one
