Facebook friends

I've got more friends on facebook. However I'm not sure about it!!! The way that I have got my friends is by going through everybody else's lists and asking people to be my friend. Obviously they are people that I've already met and spent time with, and hopefully it was a good time. However, It feels like gatecrashing somebody else's party and commandeering their guest list. It all feels a bit weird to me!!! Most of the people I've become friends with have been from Dan's facebook page, although I do have half a dozen or so of my very own friends...mind you I did find most of them on Dan's list too!!! (she's obviously nicking my friends!) Is the idea that you get as many as you can? or is quality more important than quantity. Is it rude or cheeky to ask someone that you barely know to be your friend? and then, would it be rude for them to refuse to be your friend? Because obviously, if they refused, you would know! And they too, I presume want as many friends as they can get too, so hopefully would be delighted to receive a friend request from some random 44 year old woman in Surrey.

I just don't get the 'rules' of face book, are there any rules to facebook? Is there a prize for the person with the most "friends"? Obviously if there is - I don't stand a cat in hells chance of winning it!!! Everyone told me it's addictive, and I'm not addicted yet - however I do rush to my Mac when I get home and see if I've got any new friends that I didn't know about. I'm up to about 20+ and need more!!!
