Top Friends

For a while now I've been sorting my MySpace "top friends" by themes rather than social preference.  I change the theme each week and haven't really had any repeats so far (except where not everyone was featured in a given week).  Here are some I've come up with so far.

Relationships and interests

Fictional and/or funny assortments of characters/profiles (usually accomplished by collecting fake profiles for expressly this purpose.

Plays on names


About the main picture

I wish there was a way to partition Myspace friends into groups for easy sorting.  It would be fun (and easier) if I could categorize my friends on the other pages (besides my main profile), either publicly or privately, in other ways.  Even alphabetically, hell!

For example, I could organize my friends by levels of interaction or how I know them, most people talk about their "real" friends and their on-line friends.  I guess you could break it down even further into:

and maybe even:

One of my friends (she knows who she is) predicted it wouldn't take long before I shifted over to more offensive Top 8 lists.  She was right, of course, but I haven't had the urge to 7 or 8 people at a time, at least not among my friends.  Besides, they would just drop off the list as soon as I posted it, so where's the fun in that?  Unless you want to be on one of these lists.  If so, I'll pencil you in.

I never really came up with any categories, but, here, how do these sound?

Hmmm.  Any other categories you can think of?  I'm not creative enough to come up with more.  That and I need to devote more time to filling out surveys to repost.
