i don’t think i agree. i think then people would feel excluded.  like that thread where people were naming who they would want to be friends with – no harm done in there, but as some pointed out, there was potential for it.

i like to think of weddingbee as one big facebook and you are ALL on my friend list! plus the people i would maybe “follow” are the ones that post most often, thats how i get to know them.  so sometimes when i see them, i click on their profile and scroll through their recent posts to see what they have been up to!

I think it would be great to be able to follow certain Bees, but I wouldn’t want it to be exclusive like having friends would be

@Koala Bear: I agree and I think they should not make it public who someone follows.

@MaiFuture:  ya i like that kind of idea more.  like we could follow for our own interest, but it wouldn’t be like we have a “friend” list or anything

Yeah, I dunno… I definitely wouldn’t want it to be visibly public.

If there’s somebody I want to follow up with they usually have enough posts that they show up in a recent thread every day, or I have a PM in my inbox that I can click through to get to their posts.

I would rather have some sort of system where you could be notified when someone replies to you on a post.

@FutureMrsMcDermott: I’d rather have both! But if a choice is required, I go with the reply notification.


But following certain people would be nice, like date twins or people that are doing a theme similar to mine or that I relate to.

@FutureMrsMcDermott: Agreed. Sometimes I don’t come back to a thread for a long time, or ever, because I’ve gone on to others and it disappears down my list!

I would like there to be a like button sometimes too there are times I like some peoples posts but don’t want to thave to remark all the time to say so.  An update would be great.  I forget sometimes what I’ve posted to.

I do agree with both posts about doing this or not.  It would be sorta nice but yes I can see issues with it too.
