Xbox One site helps you find new friends, envy their success

With multiplayer, multi-platform gaming coming soon across Xbox One and Windows 10, having more friends is always better, right? Microsoft's Major Nelson (Larry Hryb) points out out that the Xbox One website now gives you more chances to find pals and see their feats, thanks to friend suggestions and an activity feed (above). The activity feed is now your account home page by default and shows friends' recent achievement unlocks, clips and more. As for the friend suggestions, you'll see a "people to watch" section showing popular broadcastors and clip creators like, well, Major Nelson. Commenters on Nelson's own activity feed seem to like the change, though one is concerned that it'll turn the console into "FaceBox." We'd argue that Microsoft could take the social aspect much further.
