How many Facebook friends do you have? How many of them are you actually friends with? Well according to an online survey that was conducted by Robin Dunbar Facebook users only consider about 28% of their connections on Facebook to be “real friends.”
That’s a pretty slim number! Especially considering how many friends people have on average on Facebook.
The Sunday Morning Herald reports,
“According to the professor, we tend to have five intimate friends, 15 best friends, 50 good friends, 150 friends, 500 acquaintances and 1500 people we can recognize on the site.”
I think it’s safe to say that our “real friends” are the ones that we have connections with outside of Facebook! Maybe it’s time to clean up your friends list!
