The friend connection component helps members within the site connect with each other.

Similar to other social platforms such as Facebook, users are in a position to send friend requests, reject requests as well as cancel existing requests.

Requesting friend connections can be accomplished from the “Add Friend” button on member profile pages:

Once the member accepts the request, the two users will now be a connection.

One main advantage of friend connections is that friends are in a position to invite each other within various groups.
