Now here is an interesting paradox to solve. I have requested to become friends with various people, but no one has so far accepted. I am beginning to feel rejected Its very depressing to open your pages and be confronted with the Friends portlet announcing "You have 0 Friends"!!! I discovered that this is partly because the method I used (the Invitations portlet on the Add/More/Community menu) seems not to be for adding Friends, even though it has a link saying 'Invite Friends'. This invites peope to view your website which they then can't if they are not friends, and can't because I haven't written one! How do I know this? I got Nico to send me an invitation using this method. So apologies to everyone who received this curious message from me to view my webpage and then could not - sorry about that
I have also sent out Friend requests to various people clicking the Friend request button on their public page, including to Nico. However, when we looked at his account, we could not find anywhere a notification that I had requested to be a Friend and to Accept!
But here is the conundrum. since I have asked Nico to be my friend, it tells me this on his public page (Friend requested). He is yet to accept, but at the bottom of my page under Online Friends (for Chat purposes) he is listed (when he is online). How come he is listed as a Friend in one place but not in another, and how do you respond to a Friend request? Where do the notifications come?
