Maybe I missed it, but are there still favorite users that you're sort of extra notified about when they post things?

Good question, Rhianna. You can follow users by going to their profiles and clicking the "Follow [User]" button. All their posts will appear on the homepage feed.

At some point in the future, we hope to have a friend management page where you can choose which people you follow are your favorites.

Following users is not a replacement for the favorites feature. On the old Buzznet, we were "following" all of our friends in our feeds, no matter how many we had - but the favorites feature helped us keep track of our favorite posters even if we didn't happen to check the feed at the right time to catch their posts.

I'll admit, I liked "add as friend" more than "follow". I think it's a bit more intimate and allows for the whole "top friend" thing.

Plus, I liked signing in to "11 Friend Requests" and going through each one to make acquaintances with them. But I suppose "following" accomplishes the same thing... just a different wording.

Why not now? What is the point of removing the favourites facility ? That is how virtually everyone keeps on top of commenting on their friends/favourites posts!

I do NOT want followers or to follow people!

Buzznet seems set on making the new site as difficult to use as is humanely possible

Prefer 'add friends' than follow but I suppose I'll get use to it.

Would like a way to be able to click on a followers thumbnail and go to their page when I'm in the 'Manage followers' page.

Miss favourites.

Miss sidebar updates of what friends have recently updated.
