More thoughts on "friends" vs. "followers" - if you go to your "Home" page, by clicking on your avatar, and then click the "followers" link at the top right, you'll see a list of everybody who's following you - which automatically includes all of your friends. Next to their avatars are two conjoined buttons, Friend/Noise. If they're you're friend, the button will be gray - this is HORRIBLE UX! - it should be blue or green or have a checkmark. And the default state is none - that is, both buttons are blank. So, anybody who's your friend is automatically following you. Anybody who follows you can be a friend, noise or NEITHER. What's up with the NEITHER state? Why aren't people who follow you, but are not your friends, automatically put into the Noise category?
