How to follow user or add friend ?

edited April 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Is there any way to follow users like in twitter or adding as a friend ?
And i want to show in activity section, only events of the friends or people which you follow.

Any plugin or does anybody know how to make it?

    Trust me, this is the first plugin I thought of when I started messing with Vanilla.

    I was going to work on a groups application first, though I suppose that following users would be more important, and more people would find use with the 'Friends' application. The code would be similar, too, so I could use some of what I have started, and when I finish the friends application, I could use that code to work on the groups application.

    If anyone else would like to help out, I'm on github. ;)

    We've written a very basic "Following" plugin, mostly as a proof of concept, but all it does right now is generate a pair of "Following" and "Followed by" boxes on your profile page. Other issues / plugins took priority though, and development sort of stalled.

    Would you guys like to start from where we left off? I could make a new repo and add the existing sourcecode to it....

    Let me know.

    This would be a very good addition to Vanilla 2, even if only in a simple format such as who you follow and who's following you, as @Tim mentioned.
