What's the point of friendship?

With autism comes communication issues, I see the friendship badges as an outstretched hand, a small first step in trying to establish a link with other members. Avatars are another form of expression, but that's one I can't get to grips with.

I do value the feature, but I did just wonder if I was missing something there. Tbh, I value those 'badges' or whatever they are, more than the multitude of 'friends' on facebook who have added me on a whim because they have some vague recollection of me from school, or have done an OU course with me and nostalgia for the module has made them 'friend' a load of people in an attempt to take a 'snapshot' of a period of their lives which is now moving on. But on here, offer of those badges are the result of meaningful discussion and sharing which genuinely enrich. On that level, then, they are worth far more than the technical advantages offered by 'friending' on Facebook.
