What is a friend notification?

What does it mean?

What can a member do as a friend than if they are not a friend?

Can a person on ignore send a friend notification?

I believe it is just like a follow. You get notifications of the person posting, and can keep track of friend's activity. I am not sure about the blocked member part @verticalscope , could you shed some light on this feature?

I'm not sure about this stuff either but I do have a couple of people on the friend list thing now and I haven't seen any change. The only thing I guess would be that it's easier for me to find them or message them since I can access them from my profile on my friends list. ??? I really don't know. I haven't noticed any other difference though.

I don't get notifications of my friends posting, maybe I'm missing it. I don't see any beneficial "features" to it at all.

Befriending to me is reaching out / showing support specifically to other members. Only about half the friend requests I've sent have been accepted, which is OK with me, as is breaking a friendship if the person changes their mind - no questions asked. Sometimes it's good to just be on a forum, but I feel more sense of community here among very many of us and it can be comforting to know that someone cares beyond just making a post, especially since there are so many deep and important issues discussed here and the longevity and frequency of the members' participation. Also a gesture of respect to another member for willingness to make considered thoughtful contributions, not just people whom I "agree with;" in fact I think that respectful disagreement can be even more valuable. So that's why I send and accept friend requests.

I've never blocked or ignored anyone so I don't know how that would work.
