LinkedIn, Facebook, Orkut, MySpace - Duplicating Friend Requests.

When is someone going to create an application that will allow me to manage my friends network from one place and share it across all social networking platforms?

I really enjoy playing with Facebook and I've been connecting on LinkedIn for a couple years, but now I have to ask some of my same connections to become friends all over again. Seems pretty Web 1.0 to me.

I know the value for these social networking platforms is in their users, but I can't be the only one who is getting tired of having to go through the same process of identifying friends and building networks over and over again.

Who is going to step up and solve this problem for us? One network of friends, shared over any social platform you want. Is it possible? Could OpenSocial be a step in the right direction?
