The Facebook Cull

More from me trying to help the NewsTilt guys get off the ground.

Last night I went through my Facebook friends and unfriended (defriended?) three-quarters of them.

With Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter all providing social networks it was clear that the overlap between them was unnecessary and harmful.

I'll probably email this too but it seems relevant to post it here.

I bookmarked this article but it looks like NewsTilt shut down. Do you have the content anywhere? It would be really useful.

Thanks,
Kevin
