My post in reply to: How Many Friends is Too Many? – ReadWriteWeb

Can you call them friends or contacts? In this scenario it is better to call them contacts. Linkedin for example is not a site I use to find out what my friends are doing. I use Facebook for keeping up with friends. If you have over 10 or 15 friends in Facebook are you then using Facebook like Linkedin or more like an RSS feed about people you know, once new and are networking with. Facebook might better be considered a linkedin with non-business and/or non-work related contacts in a scenario with many friends.

Facebook for dummies mentioned that it is a way to keep in contact with friends and family regardless of changes in address, telephone numbers, email addresses, or career changes. Facebook is kind or an Outlook (or other MS hater contacts manager 🙂 that keeps notifying you of your friends status, location, and updated contacts.
