I had well over 100 friends in the Facebook but then I thought why would I have such people as friends who I haven't seen in many, many years and with I am not in touch these days. So, I started to clean my friends list and now I'm well under hundred. I guess I'm checking the friend situation out later or and will probably do more "winter cleaning" there later on.
I cannot imagine anybody "normal" would need over 1000 friends, with celebrities it's quite different, they are advertising through their facebook account. I don't even think anybody would have over 100 really good friends that they interact with on a regular basis, not to say even over 10 really good friends.
