A while back, I posted about my love/hate relationship with Facebook and my unnatural friend count envy. After giving it thought and seeking the wisdom of random people, I’ve decided to go on a quest to increase my friend count. 2012 will be the year of the Facebook 400.
400 friends isn’t a lot in the grand scheme of things, but considering I’m at 200 after 3 years of Facebooking, reaching 400 could be a challenge. I have also placed a few restrictions on myself to maintain my integrity. First, I won’t accept friend requests from people I don’t know. That reeks of desperation. Second, I won’t accept friend requests from people don’t like. I’ve done that before and usually live to regret it.
I’m social enough to reach my goal, but it willtake some effort. My preference would be to add mostly new people instead of trolling around looking for friends I went to elementary school with. Adding 200 friends in 366 days will be a challenge, but i think I can pull it off.
