Ever thought about how well you know your Facebook friends?

An author in Winnetka wants to know hers enough to want to meet all 335 of them, according to the Sun-Times.

To find out if a Facebook friend is a true friend, ArLynn Leiber Presser said she's on a quest to meet each of hers face-to-face, including the 40 percent she says she's never seen in person.

Presser told the Sun-Times she already met with 40 and plans to meet up with 60 by the end of the month. Some of her Facebook friends live out of the state and some out of the country.

Trouble is, Presser's friend status grew since her story hit print.

She's currently up to 1,404, with 999 more waiting approval.
