Why do you find that odd? I figure some people just want to keep up to date with what's going on, not necessarily to interact. I find that OK, not odd. I don't think it has anything to do with popularity. Just because someone requests to be added, doesn't mean you have to respond either. It's still your option.

I agree with your reasoning John. As far as friending on Facebook goes, people from this group are the only ones I'll add that I've never met IRL. That's mostly because I feel like I've gotten to know you guys over the years, and if this place goes away or whatever, I'd like to still be able to keep up with everyone.
Other than that, I have to have had some real interaction with someone in order to add them as a friend. I do consider many of the people I went to high school with to fall into that category, even if we may have had a somewhat tenuous relationship (like we just rode the bus together or something).
I'll usually just accept someone's request and then delete them later if I don't really care.
I don't either, cope. I can see where Face Book works with extended family living in far flung locations. But otherwise? Naval gazing. Especially the Twit stuff. Seriously, who cares what somebody ate for breakfast? Ah, the sweet self-absorption of youth.
I do text. But, hey everybody does that. Right?
