  • People on your inworld friends list are also on your friends list in MySL
  • The MySL friends have the same names as they do inworld*
  • You are automatically following your friends, but can stop following any one you please
  • Following means that you see the person's public posts.
  • You can access a profile via the name in your friends list.
  • You can send a private message to anyone from their profile.
  • You can follow anyone (from the profile) if the have the appropriate settings.
  • Other people can follow you if you have the appropriate settings.
  • You can stop any person you choose from following you.
*Maybe only the user name, not the display name.

These are people I have chosen to follow without inviting them to be on my friends list.

These are people who are following me, that is, are seeing my public posts on my comment stream. They can follow me because I have set the controls in my settings panel to allow that.  I could stop someone from following me with the Remove button.
