I've known since I started my profile that there is a "friends" feature. Is there a special significance to having Friends?

Do you get notified of their questions and answers?

Does everyone but me have Friends? Lol

What can I do next?

Oh, wait. I have 3 friends~ Just saw them at the bottom of my screen. Does that tell you anything? lol
Don't know how they got there or what it means. I don't talk to them through this site. :/ Don't know...

I don't. I am not really into that sort of feature, unless I'm actually friends with you in real life. I don't really see the point to it on this site, personally.

I think it's mostly valid and useful if you sign onto Mamapedia via Facebook.

I don't have "friends". I'm not really sure of the point - it's not like you have to be friends in order to contact a person or see what they've written.

answers from Redding on

The friends thing doesnt change anything accept that its easy to find that person. Sometimes when you dont feel like reading everyones posts you can click on one of the "friends" and see what they've been answering. Most of the friends I have here on Mamapedia are people that usually share somewhat the same viewpoint as I do, and I guess that's how we became friends. It is not intrusive in any way nor does it obligate you to them in any form or fashion.



answers from Stockton on

I didn't ahve any friends and have been on here for a few years. I finally got 1 friend last week and it is someone I went to highschool with and just happend to see on here.


answers from Austin on

The only time it has come in handy to have the friends.. is when I am wanting to ask them something and cannot find that they have posted recently.. So I can use the friends option. I have only used it like 3 times.. The others I cannot even remember how and why we are friends.
It is an odd feature on here.



answers from Oklahoma City on

I did the friend thing with one lady I had a lot of similar answers with. It didn't do anything here but we eventually friended on FB and now play a lot of games together there. I don't think it does anything here.



answers from San Diego on

No, I don't have "friends" here. I have several mamas that I truly respect and should send them a friend request. To the best of my knowledge it doesn't "do" anything - you don't get any notifications if they post a question. Just makes them easier to find.



answers from San Francisco on

I didn't even know there was a "friends" feature, so I guess you're not the only one without friends. lol!!!


answers from Chicago on

Well, since you posted this I thought I would go look at my profile. I have 6 friends, none of whom I know. I don't even know how I got them, and I don't think I get notified about anything they do. It's a mystery!



answers from San Francisco on

Huh, good question! I see that I have three "friends". They are the real-life friends who (1) invited me to Mamasaurce and (2) who I invited, and they were automatically added. I don't think we see automatically posts or anything. I guess maybe it's just an easy way to find them if I want to look at their posts, but I've never done that.



answers from San Francisco on

I only have 3 friends. One is the friend who invited me.



answers from Kansas City on

I do not have "friends" on mamapedia. I have been asked a few times, but have denied it. You just never know who the frauds could be, and it is nice to be anonymous in case you have some really difficult questions, and you don't want anyone to know who you are!!!
