Friends, Until I Delete You
A PERSON could go mad trying to pinpoint the moment he lost a friend. So seldom does that friend make his feelings clear by sending out an e-mail alert.

It’s not just a fact of life, but also a policy on Facebook. While many trivial actions do prompt Facebook to post an alert to all your friends — adding a photo, changing your relationship status, using Fandango to buy tickets to “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” — striking someone off your list simply is not one of them.

It is this policy that Burger King ran afoul of this month with its “Whopper Sacrifice” campaign, which offered a free hamburger to anyone who severed the sacred bonds with 10 of the friends they had accumulated on Facebook. Facebook suspended the program because Burger King was sending notifications to the castoffs letting them know they’d been dropped for a sandwich (or, more accurately, a tenth of a sandwich). ...

I have known this in many chat rooms i have been in. I'm not talking about those who begin to enjoy a friendship and then have trouble coming in due to circumstances beyond their control. I am talking about those who just walk away from a good friendship, purely for the sake of their selfish reasons...without a word. I have lost a number of friends that way. When people try to make contact with them, they ignore them and dont even respond to emails. I get sick of those who come into chat rooms and not say anything to anyone, even when people try to be friendly with them. I have made many friends on the internet that i would not have known, but very few have remained friends. This is because they don't know how to treat one another with the courtesy and respect that is supposed to be in the Christian life...even knowing internet courtesy is a rare thing and needs education.

I'm a myspace guy and an older one at that so most of the friends on my friend list are legit friends from my life so I wouldn't delete them for a whopper. That being said, many of the youngsters have "friends" that are just sitting there, maybe met in a chatroom or are band fansites so they can probably spare ten spaces for a free burger.

I don't know who was more unwise the people at Burger King who thought this up, and the people who took them up on it? At least people know they were being dropped intentionally, I have lost people on my mailing lists, accidentally.
