How many friends have you got on your myspace? How many of them do you actually know?

I amnot sure of the exact number but very few are "famous" or peopel I don't really know. Most are old friends, new firends and net firends. :)

I have around 60 friends on my list...but I know each and every one in real life. I don't add anyone to my list unless I've met you or known you for just about ever...haha I do ocasionally give people a chance and add them...but if they can not keep in touch on a regular basis then I delete them. I'm not on here to look kewl with hundreds or thousands of friends. Thats just stupid. It doesn't mean all those people are really your friends..it just means they are as lame as you trying to get people on their list! haha.

I agree with you completely. Its annoying when people you don't even know add you just for the sake of getting a huge friend list! For my band myspace, the more the better. But at least thats got a reason(getting more attention for music)!

I have 62 friends as of current, and know most of them personally for 10+ years. I do not like adding people I do not know, and I especially do not like people who try to add me as a friend just to make their friend number rise. That is pathetic. I do not add people unless I know them personally or they have a common interest with me that is legitimate.

I agree. If theres another band who wants to add my band, I'm more than happy to do it. But if someone just adds me (eg. someone from school who didn't even know me anyway), I usually just ignore it.

I have 344 friends on my space. Of those "friends" I know about 80% of them. I find myspace is a great way to catch up with high school buddies and old friends from other states. Or atleast that's what I use it for.

Wow, I envy you. You surely are a 'friendly' person, i think.

All of my friends on myspace I know in real life with the exception of a few of the bands, but most of them I know. I have around 150 friends right now, but I go through weird phases where I will delete people I know but never talk to- so I probably know around 200-300 people, I just don't have everyone added as a friend. Everyone that I have now I know and talk to often in real life.

I have about 250 friends on myspace, and I'd say I know about 225 of them personally. Myspace used to be a good site to use everyday, but I've found its gone to hell now. Personally, I enjoy facebook a lot more.

I only have 21 people on my friends list, and know 17 of them from real life (not from on line). I like searching for people on there that I have known at one time or another.

I have 25 right now, and rising....but i don't add people just for the hell of it...i normally add those whose posts i like...or the ones i find funny... if someone requests friendship to me i check their profile out and if i find some kind of affinity with them i add them too. do you do the same?

I have about 140 people on my friends list on myspace, I know about 100 of them at least (from other online places like livejournal etc, that is - I only know a couple in real life).

I do know all of my friends on myspace, but some are just acquaintances. I think there are 200 something on mine. My profile is set to private and i dont add anyone I dont know. My one exception are bands i am interested in and want to get info on them by bulletins or something along those lines. There have been too many stories of kids getting abducted or creepy people finding out their information because of myspace. I think even if you had 40 friends on myspace it would be impossible to talk to all of them. I think the reason for having so many friends is just to stay up to date with everyones lives in one way or another. Either by bulletins, or looking at their page to see whats going on in their life. Its fun to see peoples personalities by theyre layout or song, or just the things they write, even if you dont know them that well.

I'm the same as a lot of people who responded here.. I have around 45 friends and talk to each of them on a regular basis. I don't know all of them in real life, but I enjoy getting to know people from all over the country. I've also met a couple folks after meeting them through myspace.
