Ever wondered what Bill Gates’ Facebook really looks like?
This week, reports have surfaced that Bill Gates stopped using Facebook because too many people wanted to add him as a friend. Gates told an audience in New Delhi he had tried out Facebook but ended up with “10,000 people wanting to be my friends”. According to Gates he had trouble figuring out who was a real friend and who was not, “It was just way too much trouble so I gave it up,” Gates told the business forum.
Gates lists his favourite activities as “Tennis, Bridge, Reading, Movies” and is interested in “Science, Health, Philanthropy, Software, Neuroscience, Energy”. Gates also lists his Education and work history, noting he attended Harvard in 1977 to study Mathematics and Lakeside School in 1973.
Gates has a small 112 friends who he accepted onto his account before 10,000 people tried to add him as a friend. Some are less than genuine as can be seen in the wall posts, but fellow Microsoft workers Steven Sinofsky, Ray Ozzie and Charlie Kindel are all listed as friends, on his Facebook account.
