You can buy Facebook friends.  They start at 1,000 friends for $177 and go up to 10,000 friends for $1,167. You get them at Usocial.net. Usocial says all they do is send out friend requests on behalf of clients. It’s up to the receiver to accept or reject the new “friend.”

This is bordering on obnoxious. Reuters reported that Digg.com, a website where you vote for the websites you like best, tried to shut uSocial down, because it was selling votes. And Twitter accused uSocial of spamming its members.

Ten things you can do to protect your Facebook privacy: allfacebook.com.

  • Use a “friend list” to create private groupings of friends based on your personal preferences. For example, you can create one friend list for your book group, and another for your family.  With lists, you can quickly view friends by type and send messages to your lists.
  • Remove yourself from Facebook search results.
  • Make your contact information private.
