What's the point of the friends feature on this site? I guess it's only good if someone's profile is private but hardly anyone's is. I usually ignore friend requests at first but it starts to stack up and I feel like I have to get rid of the notification so I usually accept all. So can someone explain the benefits if any? Because it's not like Facebook which I don't even have, where you can see your friends updates and what not. Won't be surprised if the site deletes this this question lol.
I don't see a reason why anyone would remove this question. When there was chat it was more useful. When someone was your friend they would show up in the chat box under "friends". As far as I know I guess its just to follow someone's questions and answers. Some people still send messages to each other. Some people just like to have a lot of "friends" lol.
If you like the questions or answers that user asks and want to make it easier for you to quickly check their profile, just go to your friend list and click on them. No need to search for them by memorizing and typing in their name.
I guess just to follow the questions they ask and see their answers.
I don't know I don't really send out friend request. Pretty much all, if not all, of my "friends" on here were because the girl friend requested me. I never pay attention to what anyone on my "friends" list does anyways . . . so I don't really see the point. At least not now since there is no more IM chat.
I prefer having friends because in the Live Feed you can see what everyone is answering and stay on top of the fun questions, and see what the people you like are answering. Maybe they have some good advice that you didn't think you needed.
