I removed 300 friends in Facebook (sad face)

Sorry guys, I removed 300 Facebook friends an hour ago, because I already reached the Facebook limit of 5000 friends and then Facebook allowed me to add 300 plus more in my Facebook friend list. The problem that I encountered is that I need to add some important person to my timeline and that forces me to remove 300 inactive and unfamiliar person that I didn't engage with them online. I have a 2nd Facebook account, I created it to add more, but it seems that having two or more accounts is so difficult to manage, I tried operating the two accounts using with different browsers but the clicking made me stressed more, so I decided to to the unfriendling move.

If you  discovered that I already unfriended you, hope you understand and there's still a SUBSCRIBE button in my Facebook, that enables you to be still connected in my timeline. All my posts are set to public, so there's nothing to worry about if you missed an update or status or news that I shared,you can still be part of my network by subscribing to my Facebook.

I have the Facebook Page, but I don't use it much, there are times that I got the idea to convert my Facebook profile account into a Facebook page, just to accommodate more people to add me in their timeline, but I'm sure some people will get mad at me because I forced them already in becoming my Facebook fan hahhaha. But I didn't proceed in the transformation of my account and let it live as a Facebook profile account.

I hope Facebook let us add more friends and limit will be lifted.

Or you can follow me on my Twitter page - https://twitter.com/popazrael

I'm taking a break just to watch Avengers cartoons season 2

 
I'm taking a one hour break for me to have a chance to continue watching cartoons on our TV. I just started watching the season 2 of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes animated series and I'm so hooked already in watching it, you know that the end of season 1 made me so excited for the season 2. The Skrulls secret infiltration just started and our Marvel heroes are not aware that one of their team mates is an alien Skrull. Just like in the comics, the Secret Invasion story line gave a big impact in the Marvel Universe, the story led also to a war of heroes vs. heroes and later on a war with the Hulk.


The 1st episode of Season 2 is a big impact already, you'll see the Avengers teaming up with the Fantastic Four vs. Doctor Doom. You'll see a UFC match of the Hulk vs. Doom, a scene that you'll never see in an Avengers live action movie. I'm glad that Doom didn't get the puny Hulk smash.


The story started here and I'm sure more invasion will occur in the next coming episodes.
  
Oh yeah!! Doom will have a big role in this second season..

Avengers Assemble!!!!
