This plugin provides you the best tools to increase user-base and friendships on your social network. Your users get effective tools to expand their social graphs. It enables your site to give sound recommendations to users for adding friends, just like Facebook does. The algorithms behind the friend's recommendation engine are based on user relevance and highlight people that the users might actually be interested in.

Users can also suggest friends to their other friends, and these trusted suggestions can lead to a chain of friend additions. Users can securely import their contact lists / address books from popular email services and applications to invite their contacts on the site or to see which of their contacts are site members, and add them as friends.

These features are very similar to the ones on Facebook and allow for quick growth in your site's user-base and connections.
