This is my first post here so firstly id like to start with hi and i hope everyone is well.
All the languages i know i have taught myself so please do forgive me if i just don't seem to understand.
I am wondering what the best way to store a Facebook like friends list would be? currently I am storing in a MySQL database and it seems to work fine. However, I am unsure if the databases has a size or column/row limit. XML seems like a simpler option but I am unsure if it would be pretty long winded, space consuming and slow to give every user his/her own XML file.
I am just wanting someone else's view on this problem just to get a second opinion...
any advice or help would be greatly appreciated
