Community : I would like to meet new people - how should I get started? (FAQs)
First of all, create your public profile (see above). Next, introduce yourself in the public forums, and get a conversation going with other members. Interacting with others will allow you to find out who you "click with," and who you want to add to your list of friends. Needless to say, this is also a great way to get educated in all areas of dieting, exercising, and general health.
As you start accumulating friends, you can enable them to be automatically sent updates to your journal (but you can also choose not to show those updates to anyone). In addition, you will also be sent all of your friends' new journal posts, which is one of the most popular features on this website. Heavy users receive well over 50 daily journals from their friends and just as many comments on their own journal entries.
It is important to note that Calorie Count from About.com Health features a sophisticated set of privacy tools that give you full control over other people's access to your content and any sort of information that you wish to publish.
