Who needs friends?

by Peter Bestel 13 replies
I still can't get my head around this friends thing.

I've noticed that some people have over 200 already

Why?

Maybe I'm being stupid, but what's the benefit of having that many 'friends'?

Anyone?


Peter

PS - By all means point me to a previous thread that answers this - but I can't find one.

    I'm wondering the same thing!

    I'm having a hard time with this new forum and my crummy dial-up, so please forgive any boo-boo's.

      In social networking sites people usually boast about the number of friends they have..

      But I can't imagine why such a thing would happen in Warrior Forum...

            So what do us 'uncool' people do that no one wants as friends?

            I thought being a Warrior was cool enough. Now you only send JVs to those on your friends list? OMG. How soon before we get "Gold Friends" ? Or is that already an OTO?

            Cliques ain't too cool (unless I'm in them, of course).

            I've just put Richard Branson's number on speed-dial. I call it my "Get-Rich-Quick" scheme.

              But, what is the criteria for being a "friend" or choosing a "friend"? I ask this because this morning I was notified that someone I have never corresponded with, asked to be my friend. Are they fishing?

              Shouldn't you only ask to be friends with Warriors you have had some type of relationship with? Or, at least, PM someone first to ask/explain why you wish to be there friend. I read the FAQ about Friends, so, yes, I realize I don't have to be just anybody's friend. I would think, though, that some of the more popular posters here are being unindated with requests.

              This could easily get out of hand.

              Just my thoughts...

                lol some of us just don't get this web 2 stuff (and I include myself in that)

                For instance I've never seen the point of facebook etc. I have a page on there mainly from when I was seeing what it was all about. Now I find my niece putting compromising piccies up of me in her facebook thingy and linkin to me (cheek)

                Yeah, I've already gotten 2 friend requests from people I've never talked to (or even posted to in a thread). It's not just the well-known Warriors getting these. I like the idea, and it works well on some forums I visit socially, but it does seem spammy to get requests from random people like that.
