I made this article because many facebook users don’t understand why they are no longer facebook friends with John Brzenk, and this led to many speculations, many believe it is something personal but I will explain what happened.
Two days ago, I discussed with John about this and will post here something he wrote me when I asked him what happened, just to clear things up.
But first you have to think of this: John Brzenk is The Legend because of what he accomplished in armwrestling, and just one week ago he had over 5,000 friends on facebook from all over the world, because he has many fans.
The problem is that when you have so many facebook friends, what facebook shows in your News Feed many times is irrelevant for you, because it shows you pictures and videos from facebook friends that you have never met, you don’t know who they actually are. Moreover, when some of your facebook friends write in their language, you can’t even understand what they wrote, and Bing Translator still has a long way to go…
In just 2 days, John went from over 5,000 facebook friends to about 2,100 facebook friends (740 mutual friends) right now. So as you can see, it is nothing personal, if you will really think about it you would probably do the same after some years of facebook, you would prefer to see pictures and videos from your real friends that you know in the real life. 🙂
