I am new to the site and cannot see where or how I add friends from this site to my page please?  I have had a look at the guidelines but I cannot see it mind you I might not be looking in the right place.  Please advise me of how to do this.  Thanks, Marion

Hi Marion, To add someone as a friend, go to their profile page and click "Add as Friend" which appears on the left, under their profile pic. If they accept your friend request then they will show up in your friends list.

I've just accepted the friend request you sent me so I think you've got the hang of it! :)

Thanks Thaneeya, I really appreciated your reply.

What do we see that is different if we invite or accept friends? Is it just a way to jump to their page quickly??

When you add someone as a friend, a link to their profile will appear in the left column of your profile page, which means you can easily find them again if you want to see their latest artwork, blog post, or other activity. You won't see a separate "Activity Stream" featuring only your friends' activity, however.

You will also be able to send them private messages, which is only possible when someone is on your friends list.

Plus, if you have the privacy setting for your profile or artwork set to "Friends Only", then the only people who will see them are the people on your friends list. And vice versa, if someone else has their setting as "Friends Only" then you'll only see their art or profile if you friend each other.
Hope that helps answer your question!
