Still havn't added anyone to my RealID in-game, and I wont be doing so unless (until?) Blizzard makes it compulsory.
*Other communications methods are available.
I have my friends nicely compartmentalised, thank you very much Blizz, and the last thing I would want is for them all to start talking to each other
There are some things that my old school or university friends know about me that I would definitely want to be kept quiet
Why do games companies (and all the social networking sites and probably everyone else on the internet) think I want to combine all my friends lists? Because they can make money out of it, thats why. I am sure Blizz would love to be able to target all my Facebook friends and sell games to them. Not going to happen though.
