The only way I can join in on a goal in progress [other than the Community Goals] is via Rock Band World, with my Facebook friends only, right? If so, then I don't have to worry about any of my goals getting sniped
To join in Goals you don't have to be friends with people on either Facebook or XBLA, you can just fire up RB World and see who is currently working on that Goal and you have the option of joining them. I found out when Apples sniped my RHCP Goal without being friends with me on line. Drake, meanwhile, has been joining random Goals and stealing all the coins at the last minute. So it works both ways.

If you don't contribute it still resolves and you get 0 coins. So don't let that happen!

I don't think any of my facebook friends play Blitz anyway, and I have no interest in adding random forum goers into my political facebook madness. I'm always willing to add to my friends list on PS3 though, if anyone wants to go that route.
As mentioned above, since anyone can join Goals, having more Facebook friends won't adversely affect your chances. Unless your friends are jerks who will deliberately grief you by finishing goals they see you working on. That's kind of one of the elements I love about Blitz, the risk vs. reward of involving friends. I can loop Pope in to help me on a Goal I otherwise wouldn't be able to complete but then he could also get more coins. The community is always working towards completing Goals together, but they're also engaged in heated Score Wars. I don't know if I love my friends or hate them!
