Why has Facebook forsaken Friends?

Many of us have a perverse fascination with love Facebook. I love Facebook and have seen it evolve year after year right beneath my fingertips. It has been a most practical way to stay in the loop with one’s extended social graph outside of family and close friends.

We live in a truly mobile age. Our main social lubricant, Facebook, ought to keep up. I’m pretty sure there is plenty of other ways people would like to use their Friends section of Facebook to ease their lives. What has been your experience with this? Any suggestions?
