Users who are friends with each other can send private messages to one another. This comes in handy when there's a matter that needs to be discussed in private.
Higher User Engagement
By enabling users to make connections with others, your site will spur the one-on-one interactions visitors desire. Users who become friends and followers will engage with each other more often.
How to Use
How to Access
From a user profile page on the site, members can click on the "Friend" or "Follow" buttons. A "Friend" request must be approved by the receiving party, while a "Follow" request happens without further action.
Friend and Follower Counts
Users' profile pages display counts for the number of friends and followers they have. The profile also displays a count of the number of users they're following.
