I have 370 wonderful My Lot friends listed. I am shooting for 1000. I take the friends circle very serious. I do not really check them out so much as I add them and hope I get responses. I have noticed my responses have increased a lot since I started adding more friends. How many do you have and how many do you want?

My goal is not a number, but a group that I can rely on to return the favor of posting to some of my posts. I post to all of my friend’s posts.

answering friends questions will help you avoid losing rating points due to bad answers to bad discussions

To know my total friends please have a look on my profile. I cant figure it out as its going on increasing. My motive for more friends is that I need to spread online jobs within minutes.

Wow you have about 320 more than I do and I can barely keep up. How do you know if you are responding to them but they are not responding to you? I was trying to keep mine at around 50!!I find it a little more personal.

In the beginning I would go to my friends list and respond each friend per week. Now I am not able to do that. So I respond to everyone who responds to my discussions. I check each new discussion daily, I rate the answers and immediately go to that persons profile and find a discussion to respond too.

I don't have a target .. is their extra money for having more friends ?? Does it really matter how many folks respond to a discussions after all we only get paid for the first reply .. whether one person or 500 answer a discussion we get paid the same .. which I feel kind of negates the fact that this is a discussion web sites as their is no incentive to actually discuss anything sadly .. I think I'd rather have less friend and have friends who's post I like replying to .. than have hundreds that I am never going to have the time to respond to .. sigh .. I simply do not have enough hours in my day heheh !!!

I have no idea if we get credit from mylot on the friends aspect. But I do know it helps me a lot to have a variety of discussions at my disposal to respond back to. I want the 1000 so I will never have to hunt or search for a discussion and I want to get lots of responses to mine too.

What do you check out about them? There is no way I can tell if someone will be a good responder or not by looking at their profile. I give everyone a chance. Some of the brand new ones have turned out to be the best.

I have 9 friends right now.and i am seeking to increase them.i expect much from my friends to respond to my discussions and rating me and also i add them to find a good discussions to respond because i like their way of thinking. Also i stick to responding to all the notification messages i received on my e-mail,it is a tricky way to increase my reponses even if i don't log on to mylot.

I don't want a big number, I prefer smaller number of good friends who really respond to my discussions and I can have the time to respond to them all.. you can have too many but just a few will be active and if you don't answer their discussions they will not answer to yours..

I have over 100 friends currently and am still building but am checking to make sure they provide quality responses and topics. I will keep adding friends unless they say or do something that I do not like. It is important to have friends on here who will reply to your topics and vice versa. I do not have a minimum or maximum amount of friends that I want.

I have 141 and I cant keep up with them. How in the world do you keep up with 370? I am beginning to screen my friends more carefully because I try to comment on all their discussions. If they are going to write discussion that are not something I can relate to then I dont want them in my circle.

Right now, I have about 130+. Not too shabby. I like your total though, that is awesome. I too want at least 500 friends on my list. I love having friends. The more the merrier.

Right now it looks like I have 184 friends on my list. I really tend to let most people request me. I feel a bit shy to request others to be my friend. So that is probably why I don't have as many as you do yet. I agree that it does seem to get easier to get replies to your posts once you have more friends on your list and more people who recognize you around the site, as well! I really got almost no replies when i first started here on Mylot, but the last times that I started topics on here I got a fair few replies to pretty much all of the topics that I started, other than a few that I could understand were harder topics to think of something to say back to. ^_^ Anyway, it would be cool to have like 1000 friends on here, but I'm not sure if I'll ever get that far since I'm pretty shy about requesting friends. *laugh*

I have 85 friends. I do not have a goal of how many friends that I have. I like to surround myself (in everyday life and on MyLot) with people that have similar interests as me. I will add people as my friend based on that - not just so that I can real a goal.

Right now I have 216. I think 500 is probably a maximum for me as I don't know that I could keep up with any more than that!
