Accept Friend request only from those who you know and trust. It should be about Quality, not Quantity.
How do I prevent people from seeing my Friends List? You can customize who can view your Friends List by going to the Privacy page and clicking on “Profile”
The Limited Profile functionality is a type of Friend List. You can limit the privacy settings for any friend list you create. If you had people on your Limited Profile, they have been moved to a new friend list called "Limited Profile," and this friend list has been added to the appropriate places on your privacy settings. For example, if you hid your Wall Posts in your Limited Profile, the new Limited Profile friend list has been placed under the "Except These People" setting for Wall Posts.
You are now able to customize which friends and Friend Lists are (or are not) allowed to view your content. To use these options, select the "Privacy Settings" option from the "Settings" drop-down menu at the top of any Facebook page. You can also review and edit your Friend Lists from the Friends page.
How many groups can I join? You can join up to 300 groups. If you have already reached this limit, you will need to leave some groups before you will be able to join any new ones. Many companies & recruiters are now using Facebook!

Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to the author's subscribers who are known as followers. Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends or, by default, allow open access. Users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter website or cell phone.
