Are all your friends in friendster really your personal friends?

Not all are really my friends personally. Most of them are really my friends, classmates, some are acquiantances and some are friends of my friends. But some of them i don't really know. It all happened one day when me & my husband had a bet who will have the most lists of friends in our account. And we just added anybody, and fortunately they all accepted our invitation and became our friends. :)

i don't add people on my friendster's friends list if i don't know them personally. i get to receive invitations from people i don't know of. i try emailing them first. asking if i have met them in the past somehow. if we haven't, i don't add them on my list. i just feel like they just make my list go crowded and i find it difficult to sort friends out if there are too many in it. hehe. but i don't think i am rude though. just my choice... anne

your right it just makes your list go crowded, i actually stopped adding & accepting any invites from strangers, now i only add people i really know. about sorting out you friend's list, you can add them in your featured friends section. so that the only 6 important friends of yours will only appear. well, i think you know already how to do it...hehehehe...

In my friendster account, Most of them are really my friends. They go way back grade school or I can say kindergarden. I can count on my fingers who are not really my friends like spongebob, smallville, starbucks... I can say they are group of people who just share the same interests.

around 98 percent of my list at friendster are my real friends. the other 2 percent are composed of people who added me through my friends.

Not really, it is too easy to add people as friends on Friendstar. I know that I have been getting alot of spam messages from friendstar. Of course, I try to report the spam but for the most part I dont thank anyone is doing anything about it. I know I have started up my own community site that I hang out on to make sure people are not spamming.

No! Haha 10% of them are my friends and relatives.. 90%, total strangers! Lol. I just happen to see friend requests all the time and I just accept it. Because the more friends you have in your friends list, the better your page will look. Or I dont know. Lol. It's just the way friendster goes. The more friends you have the better. Haha

Before I add anyone who happens to invite me, but recently, I checked all my friends and deleted those whom I don't know personally. Now, I'm proud to say that all my friends in Friendster are for real. =)

Most of them are my personal friends..like officemate, classmates way back in high school and college, neighbors, bro and sis and teachers...maybe once a month if I've got the chance to check my friend's list..I do remove some of my friends (which met thru invitation and I don't know personally) which I think not worth keeping...

No majority are just plain acquintances. A few of them are strangers. Atleast 50 of them are my personal friends.

i've got 53 friends in friendster. A handful are mere acquiantances, most of them are grade schoolmates, high school and college friends. A friend of mine had posted a bulletin that the trend in frienster now is to accumulate friends, as if there is a contest for the most number of friends. Sad to say, i'm one of them. Before, i send letters to my former classmates and friends, asking how they are and such. But no reply whatsoever. And i soon realized that they just accepted my invitation for the sole purpose of maximizing the number of their "so-called friends". Out of the 53 friends i have, only two of them bothers to answer back.
