my guess is that it does a foaf tree of your domain, when you immediately join, but then uses other tools to build and make a foaf tree... a foaf tree is a network map of the relations of your Friends of a Friend, we already know that facebook uses friend of a friend analysis in its basic code and privacy structures, it is likely it uses it in this too.
