Question re "Networking" in user cp

edited November 2010 in
What does it to mean in this context to be "contacts" with someone? To be "friends"?

    Frankly? It's crap to ignore. vBulletin is terrible and decided to try to poorly imitate Facebook or something. I can't turn it off easily or it wouldn't even be there.

    Actual answer: "Contact" can be added unilaterally, "Friend" requires approval from the other person.

    May I please be given permission to disagree with you, Lincoln?

    I like the friend feature, as it allows me to reach out to people in a more personal way. Also, I use it, as some others do, too. On the other hand, I loathe Facebook, and have dropped it. My family got me to join, and I know it would be good to be on there for my career, but I simply cannot stand the idle chatter and keeping up and the multiple friend requests.

    Sorry if my strong language about Facebook offends anyone, but I do have five or six dislikes that I simply cannot govern. Although I cannot tolerate intolerance in others, I find myself, willy nilly, forced to accept a few intolerances of my own.

    I suspended my Facebook account, so you can't speak harshly enough about it to suit me. ;)

    lol, I have a facebook merely to keep up with friends who have moved away. Other than that, I very rarely even log in to it.
