Hi does anyone know where the friends list is on the o2 community? Because when you go on to someone's profile on the o2 community you can see a button with the word friends on it but when I go on to my profile I can't find my friends list?

Good question - it's hidden under the gear wheel in your Private Messages Inbox, @Luke30:

And then:

...which leads you to:

And then you can scroll down and click on a friend or a person you have 'ignore'd, which goes to their profile where you can either Ignore or Friend them.

Hope that helps, @Luke30 👍

Anyway @pgn  and @Luke30  it's here if on PC. You go into Private messages and this is displayed at the top left hand side of the page. Keeps closing so screenshot impossible

If you click on the cog your friends are tucked away under that! Stupid!! Why hide them?!

Some people keep their friends under wraps - or is that their lights under a bushel, I forget, @Cleoriff 😆

It is in a similarly hidden cog, sprocket or gear wheel in Desktop View on Mobile too.

So much for a single, uniform, platform and view across any of the plethora of devices and browsers, @Cleoriff 🙄

Anyway, I don't think a pm from a board manager divulges too many secrets 🤣

And @Luke30 hopefully has found the hidden menu, to your point about 'hiding' it instead of putting it up on your Profile, where logically one would expect to see it.

Yes but YOUR friends are only ever visible to you @pgn. Even in the old (better) forum, anyone viewing your profile couldn't see your friends list which was displayed openly on your profile page. It also showed your email address and the device you were using. None of that was visible to anyone else. Only you could see it.

Understood -  the "My Settings" link on your Profile takes me to "My Settings", but takes you to your "My Settings".  Ditto it could say "My Friends" there, and take me to My Friends list, not to yours:

Exactly @pgn. This is why I don't understand why MY friends are hidden in this new layout.

I remember when I hadn't been here long and I sent a panicky PM to Toby, the manager at the time. I was concerned as my profile page showed all my personal info including email address etc. He reassured me sending a screenshot of what could be seen by anyone else.

It's no big deal really but I just don't understand why I have to dig around in various settings to find my friends. 😂 Like blumming Mata Hari on a mission!

Let's face it, looking at your two screenshots, if you could access MY settings, you could delete my account without a second thought 🤐
