    Default What does the friend list do?

    I wonder if I am missing out on some function of the forum software, because as far as I can see when you accept a friend request that person gets added to your list, but nothing else happens. What am I missing?

    I don't know the complete answer to your question, but one thing that does happen is that posts by your "friends" show up on your profile activity page, under the "All" tab. You have to look at a member that has "friends" to see this. Here is an example:
    http://www.beesource.com/forums/member.php?85918-Lburou

    Note that you can click on the other tabs to filter the activity.

    Anyone on your friend list can call you in the late afternoon and you must help them load and move hives that night. They also have free access to your honey extracting room, bee truck and borrowing privileges on all your other bee equipment. You can not charge them more than wholesale for any honey they buy from you and you must give them your unused equipment for free. That's what BeeSource friends are for.

    That's what I was afraid of...

    If a member was interested in what his "friends" were posting then this would be an easy way to keep up. Otherwise, AFAIK, you would have to do multiple searches to see what your friends had posted recently.

    It looks like the friend list is actually pretty useful if you think of it more like the list of people you are following as on twitter.

    Because the main utility is that you can list the latest posts of the folks on that list it kind of presents a problem. What if you have friended everyone who friended you all along, and now realize that lards up your "feed" with a lot of noise? I see that you can add someone to the list without requesting that they follow you, but if you "unfollow" someone will they get a notification that implies that you no longer like them as a person and no longer are their friend?

    I know it sounds a little silly.
