While using the friend feed to see what my Spark friends are up to, I keep an extra window open showing all my friends. Then I can easily link to their individual Spark pages to comment, give goodies, read and comment on their blogs, and send them sparkmail without having to leave the friend feed.
This saves me the time and trouble of having to reopen the friend feed and navigate through the pages to continue reading the feed.

Friend feed is an awesome feature of SP. Easy way to keep up with what's going on with my SparkFriends. I like when my friends comment on my feed too. One of the first emails I open up! (Hugs) 220 and Cheers 321 to my SparkFriends!
Way to celebrate successes and give encouragement when needed!
How to find SparkFriends who you forgot to add when they added you as a friend
Did you know that SP keeps a list of people who have added you as a SparkFriend, but whom you have not added? I discovered this after being on the site for a year, and found a few people for whom I had missed notification emails that they had added me, so I was able to add them now. Yay for new friends!
To find your list, click on the "See Full Friend Feed" underneath your Friend Feed on the right side of the scren, then in the paragraph at the top of your Friend Feed page, look for " Click here to see or edit your list of mutual friends", which will take you there.
Streamlining My Friend Feed's activities and blogs
I have a large and active Spark friends list and a slow connection -bad combo. So I handle my huge friend feed lists this way. First I read all my Spark articles e-mails, earning my points for each one, which gives me six new windows, I click on friend feed on each window, and then go back to the first, click all my likes and comments, then click on blogs on each feed, reading and commenting on one while the others are still loading.
I am able to get around to more blogs this way with my slow connection in a shorter time. Also, in huddling, when you click on a blog, you get a new window as well, so when I do all my huddles, I use those extra windows to tackle my friend feed too
