The Friends/Contacts list is a way to keep track of the friends you make here on Pregnancy.org. You can use this feature to see which of your friends is currently online. You can also now share private photo albums with your friends!
To set up your Friends/Contact list on the boards, simply click on Forum Actions (located near the top center) and select Edit Profile. Next, select Contacts & Friends under Networking in the Your Control Panel column on the left hand side. From there, simply enter the username of the member you wish to add in the box and click Add Friend.
*Please note that this is different that the friends you enable on your personal member page / wall!
