Xbox Live Fall Update Adds 'Friends of Friends' Option

In addition to the debut of Xbox Originals, the Xbox Live fall update will also give members of the community a social networking-like friend-connecting feature when it debuts December 4. Dubbed "Friends of Friends," the option allows gamers to view the friends list of anyone who has the feature enabled, Microsoft announced today.

For those frightened of Xbox Live friend-stalking, the feature's setting can be modified as of today at the Friends of Friends site. For members older than 18, the default setting at the feature's launch will allow everyone to view their friends lists. Gamers can also block the feature entirely, or make their list viewable to "friends only."

In the interest of safety, Microsoft won't allow gamers younger than 13 to enable this feature, and only those older than 18 can set their list as viewable to the general public.

    Any news on the rumored clan update to Live? Will the Dec update bring anything else?

      Clans would be sweet, but only if they are not capped at some insanely low number.

      Also friend aliases PLEASE.
