Friend or Follow?
When you find a person using The Equestrian App using search, you have two options for adding them as a contact. It is important to denote the differences.
Adding "As a Friend"
When you add someone "As a Friend", you are saying you personally know them. The other person will receive a notification that you added them as a friend and then need to approve the relationship. Once they do that, you will see them in your Contacts with full access to their contact information.
Following a person
Following a person would be like following a person on Instagram or Facebook. You would just see their POSTS that they make public. It is a very limited view for privacy reasons, but still fun to follow!
