Snobs on Facebook

Yesterday, a glamorous friend of a Facebook friend posted an interesting comment on her wall.  She began the post by noting that, with her active lifestyle, she meets lots of people.  The problem is that so many of them send her Facebook “friend” requests.  She doesn’t understand why, based on a single meeting, people would think they would be welcomed into her “clique.”  To her, they seemed so pathetic – desperate and over-reaching.

I wanted to respond to her post, but since I wasn’t a friend, I couldn’t.  I wanted to tell her that she should feel flattered that new acquaintances want to join her circle of glamorous friends.  Although many people have a relaxed attitude toward accepting “friend” requests, she is certainly entitled to limit her Facebook account to family and close friends.  But she shouldn’t be ridiculing those she is rejecting.

Ironically, shortly after posting her comment, this lovely lady posted from the Christian church she was attending.
