I guess having hundred friends here helps a lot. First of all, you get a good amount of responses, as your friends will be alerted when you start a discussion. And, you never run out of topics as you tend to generate a good amonut of discussions from your common areas of interest. And you never get bored when looking for some good discussions to which you have to respond. You just need to search for the discussions started by your friends. But more than all these, it improves the qality of your life. I am always excited, and humbled, when my friends show some concern towards me, and notice my absence here. How about you all?

I have about 500 friends here at Mylot. Not all of them can relate to my discussions but alot of them respond to them which helps me alot. I like being alerted when my friends make discussions also, so I do not have to go to the Mylot site and look for them. It is very convenient to have them sent right to my email inbox. I never get bored either because the discussions come in all day, every day. I never run out of discussions to respond to. I also like it when my friends help me and I help them. Alot of them ask me where I have been also and it goes to show they are and miss you.

I think it does and I hope it does. I do not start many discussions, I reply to some of Mylot's friends discussions but they're either not really active anymore or too busy to remember us because they have so many other friends. So it doesn't improve my status here at mylot, but also a lot of people add me in hopes of me replying to their discussion where they don't have to do mine.

I agree with you 100%. I am meeting people on here that I would have otherwise never have meant. Some very great topics have been started on here also. Some that really make you think about things.

Yes, I agree with you. The friends network is a wonderful thing here at MyLot - not just to get responses to our discussons, and theefore more money, but because it is a really warm, and caring community. Through various ups and downs in my life that I have chronicled here, I have been amazed by the kindness and support of some of my friends here - people I have never met personally, but feel very close to - it is a blessing.

I have found that my friends are what makes the experience of myLot so fulfilling. I have learned a lot from them, and experienced their caring and camaraderie. I miss them when they are not here, and I bounce ideas of off them when they are here. I do not even know how many I have, I almost never delete one, and they show up all the time, even in my old discussions.Yes, I have a built in audience or response team, and a source of new discussions. I have not given anyone a chance to really find me absent here, though.

I EXCACTLY AGREE. if we have 10 friends, we had posible to respons my discussion = 10 response, if we have 1000 friends, posible to respons discussion = 1000 respons. Is thats right?. so collect more friends to grow up your mylot. And i think more friends can help you to out of your problems.

Yeah, making friends here is easy and helpful, mylot people they do really helps, It is not to get more responses to me, but to get good real friends, I like knowing people and know their opinions and ideas, I really care when my friends response to my discussions and I like to know their opinion because almost all my discussions are real and part of my life.

Maybe not a hundred friends, but I do have 13 of them. Although I don't think that it's a type of rank to measure how many friends one has. Normally I wouldnt've minded having no friends here on MyLot, but hey, at least I got some.

i haven't seen you in awhile ashjoe. where have you been? well, good to know you are finally back. anyway, most section i go to and spend a lot of time searching for interesting discussions to respond to is the "discussions my friends started" section. i love it here. i get to know my friends more through the interactions we have. plus, i get to help them widen their thoughts by sharing my ideas while i get new ideas from them, too. i already have lots of true friends here in myLot. someone i feel i can rely onto and trust. happy myLotting!

I am at 92 friends and recieve many responses. Not as many as I'df really like but enough to keep me at a 10 star and 97/100 rating. So I'm doing something right anyhow. I feel that there are so many opportunities for new members to get started with so many others willing to basically take them under their wings. I like having newcomers as friends most times. I get a sense of being when I help them about the site and guidelines etc. They also appreciate the help a lot. So it's actually a win win situation having many friends on a site such as this. Thanks friend for this discussions also. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I think you're right, it does help having more friends. I'm still relatively new to mylot, but I've noticed that as I get more friends, I have an easier time finding more discussions to take part in, and my earnings have gone up.

That may be tru but I don't like randomly adding everyone to my friend list. I always go through their profile before making a friend request, just to check out what kind of discussions they start and respond to. I only add people who start good discussions. Since I don't start too many discussions, I rely heavily on responding to my friends to earn here.

Well, I don't have 100 friends, but I do like the way the myLot friends system works-- it's a lot more conducive to actual INTERACTION between people than social networks like MySpace and Facebook... and at the same time, it's much easier to get readers here than it is to get them on a conventional blog. And if you're the least bit "selective" about who gets to be on your friends list, using the "discussions my friends started" category nearly always brings up something interesting to read.

it may help. again friend should put notify on to know when a discussion is started by me. But i have also seen taht there are some friends in list who have just added me, but never answer my discussions.i generally browse through the discussions started by my friends and answer where i like to.

Your observation is worthwhile. When new friends are added up to your profile, the discussions become more encouraging and a lively atmosphere of participation pervades.
