I find myself with a little bit of a dilemma here. At this current point in time, I have my following tab essentially dedicated to my friends. I want to follow more people, but I don’t want my friends’ projects to get drowned in the sea of miscellaneous hopscotchers. No, this isn’t the first step of turning hopscotch into facebook. This is a legitimate suggestion that I would find useful. So, beneath the follow button is a button you can click to friend someone. Simple as that. There would be a friends tab which will display projects that your ‘friends’ have published. But it doesn’t end there. If two people have friended eachother, they can share projects onto eachother’s accounts. You click the … on a project and click share onto account, then pick from a list of friends. The project will now show up on their account, but the name displayed above the title will still be your name. Both the person who made the project and the person whose account it was shared onto can take the project off of the account. There’s also a bunch of other features you could introduce with this, but I won’t ramble on forever.
EDIT: you’d also get notifications
