This is a screen shot from my personal Facebook profile, to show how many friends I have, in total 403 (3 of these belong to a business, so in fact I have 400 friends) Facebook has used information from my own profile which I uploaded to categorise my friends into six groups. These are:
- Recently added: people whom I have recently added as friends on Facebook.
- Work (7) : People whom I used to work with as Bose Corporation.
- University (47) : People who also attend Bournemouth University.
- High School (147): People whom also attended Bicester Community College, the secondary school I attended.
- Current City (28) : People who also currently live in Bournemouth.
- Home Town (148): People who grew up in Bicester, my home town.
I shall look into how Facebook categories these into close friends, acquaintances etc.
