How do I contact other users?

Is there any way to know email id of other person at stackoverflow?Like in other social networking sites, if other person allow, then we can add as friend. We can get email, etc. Sometimes i want to add to make friends so that we can exchange our knowledge or for business matters. Is this possible here?

Repeat after me: Stack Overflow is not a social networking site. – Martijn Pieters Jul 13 '12 at 11:08
@MartijnPieters c'mon, don't you want it to be just like quora, where votes are based on how many friends you have, not the quality of your post? It's just grand – Ben Brocka Jul 13 '12 at 11:19
