What purpose does the friends list serve? For that matter, does anyone ever actually use the "share your debate" or share this profile" option?

Gives you a "what my friends are doing" feed.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

It's nice to spy on them...
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

I didn't even know there was a share function.

I've never used the "share" options, though I've thought about it.

But, the purpose is basically what R_R stated. Except, I wish there would be a good function that could block out some feeds like you can on Facebook, but it is entirely possible I don't give a f*ck what <blank> is doing. But, if I ever do care, it is there for me to see - plus, I can comment on his/her profile or message them, which is another useful feature.

The "what my friends are doing" feed is very useful. It's part of my routine every time I log on DDO.

Agree with JBlake and Kleptin.

I never use the share feature. I only make myself friends with people so I can PM them and so I can comment on their profile.

An additional plus is that I can see what's going on around DDO.

So you want to creep on me and you had no interest in actually being my friend?

It's useful for mafia. I just check the friends feed to see if someone has posted recently.

Think of it this way: you're friends on facebook aren't just your close friends, just people you know.

I deactivated my facebook because of people who enjoy creeping on others.
