xboxlivelogo1.jpg Microsoft has announced one major new feature for the Xbox 360 dashboard update coming on December 4th. Once the update is downloaded to your system, you’ll then be able to view other members’ friends lists. You’ll pretty much be able to connect with all 8 million members of Xbox Live this way, even if you don’t know their Gamertag. You’ll then be able to send them messages, invite them to games, compare achievements, and such. Microsoft says their goal is to broaden Xbox Live’s community by taking cues from Myspace and Facebook in terms of being able to connect with others. Of course, if you don’t want people prying into your friends list, you can simply log into this site now and adjust your privacy settings. In other words, if you like your Xbox Live friends enough that you don’t want them getting hassled by random twelve-year olds that you somehow sleighted in an online match, you might want to think about setting your list to “Private.”
