Deleting Facebook friends

I use Facebook for staying in touch with friends and family, but also for networking and chatting with people who share my interest in music, movies etc. However, having too many "friends" started stressing me out, so now I'm unfriending people I don't know well, or people I don't speak to very often. I used to feel bad when turning friends requests down, but have realised that I need to do so for personal reasons.

I don't want to sound ungrateful or snobbish. It's nothing personal, I just need to focus on my closest friends and family. So if you've been unfriended, it doesn't mean I'm angry with you or that I don't appreciate writing with you every now and then. As you know, Facebook and other social networks are updated in real time, so too many "friends" makes it harder to keep up with your loved ones.

Only some of the posts on my personal Facebook profile are public, because I want to keep my privacy. But you're welcome to subscribe to my profile or like my pages Bimbo Boy, Plastic Retro or Dennis Alexis Hellström to stay updated. I'm also on Twitter, Google Plus, Tumblr and Instagram.

I don't mind getting to know new people and having online friends, but I can't accept requests from all the people I sporadically chat with. If I did, I would drown. If people choose to take it personally, that's their prerogative, and I'm sorry about that, but I have to do what's best for me.

Thank you for understanding!

Samantha Jade - Firestarter

I love Samantha Jade's single "What You've Done To Me" from 2012 and now she's back with an even better single called "Firestarter". This electropop/dance track is amazing and I can't wait for Samantha's upcoming album!

"Firestarter" is out now on iTunes and Spotify.

Bimbo Boy - Je Suis Une Superstar (The Sims 3 Video)

Time for a flashback! My Bimbo Boy song "Je Suis Une Superstar" was originally released in 2005. I just realized this version isn't on YouTube so I made a little video using "The Sims 3". It's about Jimmie Crocker who has a hot dream about his cute mailman. Enjoy!

The song was written by me and Måns Ek, and produced by Måns Ek and Istvan Stenberg. You can download a free MP3 of the track from Soundcloud. Stay tuned for more news about my new project Eurotix!
