    Here's Why..

    Unabridged, and perfect example for why people need to think about why they are adding friends. I like having people in my circle who are able to think about things, and who can write well. I don't want people to add me because they liked a single question, comment, or story of...

    New rule: if you're adding me,

    message me a "hello" or something because I never say hi first, I just don't. After all, I didn't add you, you added me.

    After having a previous account I have decided

    not to add people unless they message me first. This may upset people, and it is nothing against them, but I am tired of having 1000+ friends and only 5 message me with 2 of them being chat I do not wish to partake in (of the sending pictures nature). So go ahead shoot me a...

    I Wish People Would Message Me When They Add Me As A Freind

    I wish people would do this as I always do when I become friends with someone.

    Do Not Fan Me For No Reason

    I get "fanned" all the time. Sometimes I say hello - in an attempt to make some kind of communication between this strange person but often it goes unanswered or given a weak answer. Well then WHAT'S THE POINT IN FANNING ME? I had had enough after the last person fanned me. I...

    At Least Upon Adding Me!

    It just seems much more personal and special to have a message from someone when they add me. It shows that they're actually interested in being my friend as opposed to just being another number on their friend's page. I've been this way on every social site I've ever been on...

    I add people as friends

    if I have something in common with them or they posted something that I liked so that I can see your future posts. I don't add people because I want to message you. I'm only good at general group shares. I'm not good at one on one conversations because I have nothing to say to...

    Happened to me a few days ago.

    So random chick adds me I say hi, they say hi and then I begin to try and start a chat but they don't seem to know how to message back anymore but the love posting stories. Why did you add me then???

    Thank You

    Thank you that in future you will send me a short (or longer, if you want) message when you add me as a friend (at least i hope you will do so). Sometimes when i wasnt here for a few days (even if it is only 1 or 2 days) i sometimes have more than 20 new fans, and not more than 3...

    So Annoying

    When people add me without talking to me, introducing themselves or explaining who they are and why they want to friend me, I will refuse to accept the request. It just doesn't make sense to me. I'm not with EP to look popular or spy on people, and I'm certainly not here to play...

    About Adding And Messages

    I can see that most of the time everyone adds others out of randomness. Sadly I tend to do that too but decided to change it. For those of you who say that no one is replying back when you decide to send others a message is probably because they're not checking their messages or...

    I Have Changed My "add Policy"

    I used to search a person's profile if they fanned me just to see if we had anything in common and read some stories.  If we had lots of experiences in common, and I could relate to their stories, I would add them.  However, that's changed now.  Even if I can...

    Please?

    You read something that I wrote or saw I had a common experience with you. I think that was your motivation to add me as a friend. I'd like to talk to you, please? Even when I message you after accepting you as a friend I rarely get a response. What's that about?

    It's A Must

    These days I won't just add anybody to my circle. In fact, I pretty much don't add anyone any more.I have my reasons, the main one being I got sick and tired beingĀ a number on people's profiles. If you haven't spoken to me I won't add you. Send me a message before you do...

    Anything?

    I don't understand why so many people don't.. they just add me and that's it. Just a hi or something would be nice I guess.. I know I did that before... added people and not say anything to them.. but that's because I'm so shy to do so. That's why most of the time I don't add...

    If You Want To Be Friends...

    Why not start a conversation? It doesn't do much good to have someone in your circle who never contributes anything. I recently cleaned about 225 "friends" out of my circle because they never contacted me, never acknowledged my status, stories, or existence for that matter.I don...
