It's like a Myspace, you put info about yourself and a pic. Then you sit back and have people add you to their "friends" list and sometimes you continue to talk to those people and other times it is just some person looking to say "look at all the friends I have!". LOL, no offence to you, I'm not saying that you are doing that. There are just some sad people out there who add people to their list so they can say they have "friends". There was a guy at another message board that was like that.
