I am wondering what is the purpose of having friends here at Literacybase.com?

Does it mean they can follow whatever blog/comment you post here? Can we find our friends’ posts easily? I think there should be a mechanism wherein we can easily find the list of our friends’ posts.

What do you think?

I think LB being WordPress based site with the forum functionality of BBPress. You can find those features and the options from that plugin. When that plugin is used, it adds features of social network. So you get message box, friends and status options. They can follow you through feed but that feed seems to be not implemented on any page here. These options turn any site into the site that has the option of social media. So it does not add much value to the website but it can be a good option nonetheless.

I would like to see Literacy Base notify us for comments, not everyone tags our names so we won’t be able to see them. And the comments take long to load, comment. :/

Thanks @Mahesh and @ Michelle for your replies. At least it has a purpose, although I wish there could be a feature where we can see if our friends posted some blogs. Then we can follow them and make some comments too.

Yeah it would be nicer if the interface was easier to navigate. 🙂

Thanks, @Kumar for your reply. Now I know how to find my friend’s posts.

I think a lot of those features may slow the site down. Because it runs as a plugin in WordPress. So more such features as expected above may slow the site down. And this may even in turn affect the site. So I don’t think it’s worth having such features. If these features were to be adding any revenue, I won’t mind. But at this point of time, it serves no purpose. And it can be really bad in such case for sure as well.

Thanks, @Mahesh, if that feature about friends will slow down the site, and if we will not earn from it, it is better not to have it at all.

@acelawrites,

I have lots of friends here indeed already. But I find it hard to search for them amongst my long list of friends.

I also want to see their posts and comment accordingly, should I have something to add.

Though, I have discovered that when we click at one’s username we can see their posts.

But what if we forget their correct username? It will be hard.

Yes, Dina, it is hard to find friends’ posts. The owner/admin should device a feature for that. It should be user-friendly.
