- Using a nickname or name
If you know the nickname or name of the person you want to add as a friend in BKOOL, all you have to do is log in at bkool.com and click on the search icon at the top of the page (magnifying glass). Three options will be displayed, select only the “PEOPLE” option, write the nickname in the text box and finally click on the magnifying glass again.
The people who match that nickname or name will appear. If you have found the person you are looking for, all you have to do is click on their name. Provided that this user does not have their profile set as private, you will be able to access it and invite them to be your friend.
You may find that during a route you meet other users you would like to add. If you do not already know their nickname, you can access your activity history, enter the route you have completed and click on the user in the classification. This way you can get to know them better and can invite them to be your friend at BKOOL.
In order to be able to invite a user to be friends or to be invited, you need to have your user profile set as public.
- Using an email address
If you know the email address of the person you want to add as a friend in BKOOL, you can do so via your profile in the Friends section. Simply write the email and click on “Invite”. The person you have invited will receive the notification and, if they are a BKOOL user, all they have to do is accept the invitation. In the event that the person you have invited is not part of BKOOL, in the invitation they will have the chance to register.
- Via Twitter
Clicking on the “Invite via Twitter” option will open your Twitter account, which gives you the option to invite everyone within your Twitter circle. This means that your Twitter contacts can be added as your friends in BKOOL or, if they do not have an account, register in BKOOL.
- How does the friend invitation arrive?
The friend invitation will always be sent as an email, where a button will appear to accept the invitation.
