    If you haven’t already, create a child theme.

    Then copy your buddypress/template folder & subfolders over to your child theme.

    Go through each file, search for instances of the word “FRIENDS,” and replace it with “CONNECTIONS.”

    Or, you can pay a developer thousands of dollars to make a plugin do it for you 🙂

    If you can’t find all instances of the word “FRIENDS” in these files, check your buddypress.po file and use Poedit to hack it out of there too.
