Your Friends List is a list of HMF members you consider your "friends" to communicate with using HMF's private messages and comments or just to keep track of so you can follow their participation (photos, journal, etc.) on HelpMeFind.
You add members to your friends list by visiting their member page and clicking the ADD TO FRIENDS button. You review or change your friends list by visiting your HMF member page and clicking the My Lists tab.The Friends List is particularly useful if you want to limit the members that can use HMF to send you private messages. Your HMF account "Preferences" maintenance includes an option to restrict private messages to just your friends.If you just want to prevent some specific (annoying) members from contacting you, the Block Member feature is a better choice. See the ADD TO BLOCKED button also found on that member's page.
