You can Browse or Search for Friends within the "Friends" tab at the top right. Next week we will be adding the ability for you to invite friends outside of the Community. And in the coming weeks, we will be introducing some new ways to search (by Diabetes type, etc. Thanks Brooke for the feedback!).

As far as making Friends on the site, the best way to either get Friend Requests or to have your Friend Requests accepted is to upload a picture to your profile. This can be done through your own Profile page underneath the standard green pic. And, of course, if you don't feel comfortable adding a picture of yourself, you can always add a picture of anything that expresses your passions or who you are.

Good luck and, as always, you can contact me directly if you have any questions or suggestions for the site.

I know you like this site. I see your friendly face all over the place. I agree with you, a chat room would be nice, then you could have a chat without having to wait a day to read it.

Thanks Tony. Again, we should add an invite to be friends link all all discussions and replies so that if someone reads something they like…they can become friends with that person.
