unfriended by somebody
I never liked
O brave new world! This one is pure fiction, since I've never entered the universe of Facebook et cetera. Some of you may remember this earlier one
I keep

Me too --
Never entered that universe or plan to enter...

So I didn't much get the significance...

Thanks, Magyar.

Devika, to "unfriend" someone is to drop him/her from the list of those who have access to you at Facebook and similar locations. "unfriending" was the topic of an article in the NY Times, which led to this senryu.

polona, glad to have you on my side.

Glad you enjoyed, Vaughn.

Good one - always great to see the poetic potential in new technologies / sites etc. That makes them worthwhile if for no other reason :)

'unfriended' that a nice one; reminds me of someone who was complaining to me once about be invited then 'uninvited' to a dinner party

I am in Facebook, but not so eager... Messaging mostly with two or three friends there. My opinion is that Facebook is mostly full of nonsense.

uninvited, eh, Gillena? That's a good one, too.

Well, tikis, nonsense has its place.

Welcome, Dalloway (Obviously, you're not afraid of Virginia Woolf) and thanks for the visit.
