If you want more friends join groups that hold your interest at heart or better yet start your own. If it has value to your friends, it will have value to their friends as well. The more people know about you and what your interests are the more they will leave comments. Attracting new friends is easy once you open up.

Everyone can see your fan page not just your friends. You can post valuable information and watch how many people show an interest in what you have to offer.
