Sounds like you’re doing things the right way.
Forums – There are 4 forums right now… 1) Introductions, 2) Lesson Requests, 3) Community Help Forum (where most questions are asked) and a new one… Saturday Night Cafe (I’ll be sending an email soon about this).
Friends – you can request others to be friends and accept invitations from others. You’ll then share activities like accomplishments, badges, etc. You might want to try it out and see how it works.
Groups – no groups yet.
