We don't want you to feel like a loner so we've given commenters the ability to make friends, it's extremely simple and for most of you it will be much easier than in real life. Sorry that last bit was a joke, I'm sure you have no problem making friends...
To "Follow" or "Friend" another commenter is simple, once you are logged into your commenting account and you have found a commenter you want to befriend, just click that little heart under their name. Once that heart turns red a message should display on the side of the comment window confirming your friendship. You can now celebrate your popularity.
