FB Friends Sidebar

Someone asked me yesterday what determines the friends that appear in Facebook's Friends sidebar. Goodness know what. For the life of me, I've no clue. So that's what I said. Out of curiosity, I did a random search on the question. I didn't get anything definitive, of course.

Some folks suspect it's people who view your profile most often. Others suggest it's the people you view most often.

I looked at mine and I beg to disagree with the latter group. Honestly, I hardly view the profiles of the folks who appear in my sidebar. So does that mean the former group is the right one? I don't know. And I'm not about to ask them, "hey, do you check my profile often?"

It's one mystery that I'm perfectly fine not knowing the answer to.
