    I deleted my facebook account almost a year ago. I loved it when it first came out, but it quickly became unmanageable as I added more friends. I honestly felt too self centered to use it anyways and I disliked how undirected the communication was. When I posted a status update, it wasn't to anyone specifically, just to a group of contacts, making the message much less meaningful, in my opinion. On the opposite end, people posted status updates and uploaded pictures, but they actually weren't directed to me, so I didn't feel it all too important to comment. This is a more exaggerated version of getting an email from an old friend with pictures and a long story of what they have been up to lately, but you are on a list of fifty other people; kind of makes you feel like anything but a close friend. If I want to do that, I write one-on-one emails. Friendship is not about efficiency.

    I think it is a natural part of life to lose friends you once had. People grow up and move on. It was nice to reconnect with people from my past, but it made me realize that we aren't friends anymore for a reason; we moved on. I have friends that I have relationships with in real life. That is good enough for me. Some of these friends I will lose in the future, but I will also make new friends. Facebook has only been out for a few years and I already long for the good old days when lasting friendships required hard work.

    I don't see a need to add many friends on my Facebook, and I generally feel uncomfortable adding anyone to my Facebook account, unless he/she is a very trusted friend or family member of mine.

    My general rule is: Facebook for Best friends and family, Skype for friends whom live within the country, phone calls and SMS for people I see everyday and email/forums for the rest.

    Actually, I don't at all like the chart. Although I am definitely an Intuitive, I can also be an ordered thinker. Furthermore, the J-P dichotomy isn't explained very well in my opinion, but what can I expect for one-line descriptions? I digress.

    I hope that wasn't too offensive. My vitriol is directed at the graphic designer and not you.

    I think both sides of the types agrees with this and there is a point that each other don't like each other because for example introverts are proud not sharing themselves but extroverts hates introverts for not sharing themselves.

    My ENFJ bestfriend/roommate... I check my Facebook maybe once a week. I don't have many friends, but she is BY FAR the most active.

    She is always liking things, and she is completely open to me about how much she loves the feedback when she posts a witty status or a new Facebook profile picture. She will even sit there on her phone and inform everyone about the new comments or likes she gets on a post. I think I would be annoyed if it was anyone else! She also loves Twitter, but less so because not as many people are on it.

    I usually just have some personal friends and certainly avoid random people since they can extract our email just by adding a friend. If you don't know that person your email can get passed to the junk email servers.
