Social Network Purging Day

A collective excuse for spring cleaning stale social relationships

Have you wanted to defriend that person for ages? Social networking Purging Day invite you to spend a day united, collectively ripping off the band-aid, and get all those dusty “relationships” out of our news feeds and inboxes for good on Saturday, March 20th.

This will most likely be the one that people need to deal with most. Clean out all those friends that aren’t really friends. You need to determine where to draw the line for yourself. Maybe it’s anyone you don’t have a personal face to face relationship with. Whatever it is, determine your cutoff criteria. Unfortunately, facebook doesn’t make it that easy to remove friends. If you need instructions they have a page about it here. Also, go through and delete applications, groups, fan pages, etc. that have become irrelevant."

Digital hoarding is effortless but polluting. Many people say to me that the information in their social stream isn't worth reading.The trouble is if post, magazines and newspapers piles up in your office or at home (my dinning room table is an embarrassment) a time comes when enough is enough and 99% of it gets binned and recycled. Digital junk just expands.

What are your spring cleaning citeria? I have to admit Facebook is my most neglected and mismanaged network mainly because it doesn't return any investment I put in for business. I really should purge but on the other hand I want to provide options for people to engage. Facebook is most definitely a quandary.
