Friending Frequently Asked Questions

A “friend” is another program user who has become a “friend” via mutual agreement. A participant’s list of friends is displayed on their profile, as in other social networking utilities. When a user joins a community, his or her public profile will display in the community. Members of the community may send a “friend invitation” to other users who may accept or decline. Thus, a user may locate a potential “friend” in the communities or by searching for them.
