Managing friends

Users with access to the Friends application can manage their own friendships from within this section of the administration interface.

Website administrators can manage all users' friends in the Users application after clicking Edit () next to a selected user and switching to the Friends tab.

In both cases, the system offers tabs as described below.

On the live site, the same functionality can be provided by the web parts described in Friends web parts.

Friends (My friends)

On this tab, you can see a list of all your friends. New friendships can be requested by clicking Add a friend. You can also Remove () or Reject () friends in the list. The difference between the two is that rejected friends can't request your friendship anymore while they are in the rejected status, while removed friends can request the friendship again. Using the Reject all selected friends and Remove all selected friends actions, you can reject or remove multiple friends at once.
