There is a new way to find the information you are looking for and to meet people here in the community: You can now follow members you think have great things to say. If they follow you back, or vice versa, then you become friends! This evolution gives us the same great ability we've always had to make friends, but adds this "following" element to offer you another way to connect with people and relevant information. (For more information on how the new following feature works, check out the community update in your inbox.)

We're always looking for more ways to help you feel empowered, supported and informed. But it's all of you who make this a vibrant community where we help one another – so, thank you! Let us know your thoughts on this new feature and what you would like to see in the future.

The same basic functionality is still in place that we had before this feature. In the past you would send a friend request and wait for that person to accept it before you became friends. Now you can follow someone's activity and it will show up in your activity feed on your profile. If they then follow you back you become friends.

I've used this system, but it is harder to find people with the same problems as you unless you go to everyones profile, which is wrong.

Reindeer, I know what you are saying about checking others progfiles, but sometimes it is deemed necessary, but I found that you were born 3 days before me so we are very close age wise, but I have the heart problems and you have other conditions. I do believe we are friends on the heart connect site, so I will catch you later:)
