Bill Gates closes his Facebook Account

If you find it taxing to manage 20-50 friend requests daily in Facebook, imagine having to go through over a thousand, let alone 10,000.

Well, Bill Gates doesn’t have to image that. He actually had over 10,000 friend requests in his Facebook account that he eventually gave up and quit his site.

In a New Dheli business forum, Mr. Gates told the crowd that he had been forced to close his account due to it being “just way too much trouble” to deal with. Being a business magnate doesn’t afford him the luxury of time to surf the net 24 hours either.

He boldy adds to the crowd of the forum: “All these tools of tech waste our time if we’re not careful”.

A strange comment coming from the founder of today’s multibillion company, Microsoft. 🙂
