    Can you not just use the “Friends” component built right into BP. In the activity feed you can view all activity, or just that of your friends. If you want to share who your friends are you can use this widget: http://wpmu.org/new-plugin-available-buddypress-my-friends-widgets-download-here/

    Ben was working on a Twitter-like following system:

    Not sure what the status on that is.

    @mrjarbenne i dont think you are getting the concept of what i am trying to achieve, with friends you have to make a request and if you are a friend of a user then that user is also your friend..

    with following you can follow a user but that doesnt mean that the user will follow you also..thats why a user has followers and people the user is following..and i dont know how to write code to change the friends system to make it like a follow system… thanks for the response though

    @r-a-y thanks will check up on that
