The distinction between real, in-person friendship and internet friendship is recognized by most Facebook users.
"Friending" someone is also a nice way to show appreciation for a particular person's posts and point of view. I am a Facebook "Friend" of some folks that I have not had the privilege of meeting in person, or have only had a brief introduction and a handshake, yet I admire them or their work, and I am able to read their posts, share their ideas and see what is going on in their lives.

It is easy to make fun of, but it is a great thing to be able to connect with folks on the internet, without being restricted by geography or circumstances.
