Whether on a stroll or “scroll” you would not want to keep encountering a bunch of barking dogs or a mess of 💩 on your paths everyday …
You would want to see and connect with people you know or may get to know. Right?
If that’s you – try these tips on how to cull online connections and clean up your scroll on Facebook.
I have done this for about a year – I am down hundreds of “connections” aka “Facebook “Faux” Friends.”
I use the Birthday feature.
Simply in search bar type “Birthdays” and it will show you who on your friends list has a birthday that day.
It easily shows if people have duplicate profiles and you can click each one to see which is the valid/current profile. “unfriend” the one/s that are not.
If you don’t see any activity since their last birthday it’s safe to say they are inactive online with that profile and you can click “unfriend”.
If you see they don’t post but someone is posting with a bazillion tags of them and other people … safe to say they were hacked and you can click “unfriend”.
Sadly I found that some connections had actually passed away. Some of those I disconnect and some I don’t.
And the easiest way is when someone keeps posting some flat out crazyNESS or spamming you – you can hit “report” “block” “ban” “unfriend” “unfollow” or do all the above!
This all keeps your feed cleaner and makes your scroll so much more enjoyable.
I even found some amazing new connections that I had no idea how we connected initially but have now become amazing friends.
It’s a good thing to cull and clean it up! No telling who you will find in your New NewsFeeds.
