    Following vs Friends

    I know this is probably a stupid question, but please humor me.

    What is the difference between following someone and friending them?

    Following someone works probably just as you'd expect - submissions, journals, etc. from them will show up in your inbox (depending on how you set up your default follow options)
    Friends is mostly a cosmetic benefit. You'll appear in each other's friends list and have good feelings of warmth and kindness. However, Friending someone does have one functional purpose in that when you submit something you can mark it as being "Friends Only", allowing you to restrict viewing to those you trust.

    Ah, I see. So basically, following someone is akin to adding them to your Watch list on FA. Friending them is a more exclusive "club" on Weasyl.
