I redid my Facebook page a few weeks (months?) ago and radically cut back on contacts and "Friends". Right now, its' only family and people who I follow who I'm actively conversing with. I've got people pushing for me to make a "public" page, and I point out to them "Why? It'd just sit there with nothing being posted on it".
Granted, I do love the drama of "You unfriended me!" when I cut someone that's either constantly sending game requests or spamming up feed with "Like/Share this <insert meme>" spam.
