It's a total time drain. That's why I wrote some scripts and programs to 
automate my use of it. When I friend somebody, I have the software 
sniff out their friends and do my dirty work for me. To hell with 
clicking on a website for hours on end. I also have the same type of 
scripts working for my twitter account, which is how I follow and 
friend so many people. Quite interesting stuff starts bubbling up when 
you go a few layers deep into the social network ...
