Friends on toucharcade - what do they mean?

Hey guys,

I've had a few friend requests now, and have approved all of them.

I was just curious as to what the difference is if you're a friend with someone or not? Does it make any difference apart from showing them in your profile? You don't get any extra notifications etc do you?

Cheers,

Tim.

Opps. Can I move it to 'lounge' myself, or does an admin need to do it?

Its okay, I believe the friends feature makes it easier to send PMs to friends, you don't have to write heir whole name or something

Just kind of fun... there could be a social aspect to it...

just imagine.. if there are eventually good multiplayer games, then you have some people you kinda 'know' who you could play with/against..

the Steam buddy list is a great implementation of this

Thanks for the answers everyone. I guess I still don't really understand what the point of asking people to be friends is - apart from the quasi-social contact saying 'hey'.

That's all good though - it doesn't hurt either.
