I have it. Everyone nowadays has it. My dad even has it. As of January 2009, there are over 150 million people on the social phenomenon that is Facebook.
One of my favorite parts about Facebook is the add a friend feature, which allows anyone to look up and add whomever or whichever member/profile they choose. I love signing on and seeing that beautiful "you have a friend request" right up there in the right hand corner. (My mind as my eye views, from a distance, the F.R: Yes!!! people still love me.... I now have more friends that Moe Smow.... I guess I'm not a loser...man I'm popular....ugh that guy is totally stocking me, who IS THAT?).
It constantly amazes me the number of users who redefine the term 'friends' to mean a wide variety of people, including, but not limited to, acquaintances, a friend of a friend of a friend, that guy who sat across and down one in Bio, a person who shares the same last name as you (but who you are not, as it has it, related to) and that girl who called your sisters ex-boyfriend a manslut at that one family reunion when you were 12 (Ahhh good times...). I admit that I have been guilty of this occationally. We, are after all, naturally competitive beings. And winning means accumulating friends the same way one accumulates dead skin (which is A LOT)
