100 Friends = 100 Diggs?

Digg has recently undergone a bit of an overhaul and as a result I now I have a few fans and I can make them friends if I want to. One of my fans has 150 friends.
Ok. I mean, I want to be popular, as much as any misanthropic blogger wants to be popular, but I am not sure that making everyone on Digg a friend is the best way to do it.
I have a DeviantART account. DeviantART has always, since I have been using it, had a lot of ways to met other Deviants. You can favor a work of art, wish for that work of art, recommend that work of art as a Daily Deviation, feature the work of art on your homepage at DeviantART, watch another deviant with the click of a button, leave comments and get comments. This makes for a tight web of people that like your work and you like their work. Digg has now set up a system with like goals in mind. You have always been able to Digg something, of course, but I don’t recall this whole friends thing. Maybe it has always had this stuff and I just never noticed.
So, should I get as many friends as I can on Digg? I mean, I know this is a Why Not? kind of question, but I am just wondering. If you are one of those Diggers that has a hundred friends or so, do you have the time to look at what they are submitting? Do they spend a lot of time looking at what you are submitting? Does this count as a link somewhere? Hey, I’m a blogger, I think in terms of links a lot.
I mean, if you have a hundred friends, does this mean you should always get a hundred Diggs? It does make me feel good to see a couple of Diggs on my Posts(which is about all I ever get), how good would it feel to have a couple of hundred? Or would this just make me greedy and want a couple of thousand? I have seen posts with like 18000 Diggs. Who has the Most Diggs Ever? The mind boggles. Really.
