Is “fewer Facebook friends” the new “more Facebook friends”?

I’ve noticed a couple Facebook friends announcing that they were trimming their friends list, removing people who hadn’t commented on their posts. What’s up with that?

    If they announce that they are trimming their list then I think they are seeking the attention of others. :)

    They’re either jostling for attention, or perhaps they finally took seriously the ever-more-revealing privacy settings, and realized that even the “only friends” or “only friends of friends” settings can reveal profile information to a shocking number of people if you’ve invited every player of Farmville or MafiaWars to be a friend.
