Facebook Friends vs Real Friends

Hi, I am doing an survey for my psychology class, and I would appreciate it if you could answer 2 questions about the amount of friends you have (see below). Here is the informed consent for your info : I am testing a hypothesis about the negative correlation between the amount of facebook friends and real friends. First things first: this survey is completely voluntary and confidentiality will be of utmost importance (I will use only the numbers, not your user-names), and honesty would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
1.)If you have a Facebook account, about how many people have you "friended" online?
2.)About how many friends (according to the above definition and quote) do you have in daily life? In regards to this survey, the operative definition of “friend” according to dictionary.com is: -a person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard -a person who gives assistance; patron; supporter Also consider the following quote by Walter Winchell: “A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”
