Hi Eternal Peace and trevortronik,
If you would like an alternative to sending e-mails to your friends, you should consider this CloudSponge extension that we developed for CloudSponge. It provides a much better sharing experience for your customers & gives you a greater probability of increasing sales.
For more information, check it out on our site & get a free trial from CloudSponge to test it out: http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/eyemagine-cloudsponge.html
You can also check it out on this CloudSponge video: http://youtu.be/venH659FpGo
I hope this helps! Feel free to message me if you have any questions!
