Discussion: Improving the ability to follow and friend other users and communities/charities

Users helping or being helped would like to friend and follow others journey, and this would make our site more community focused.

What is the best way to implement this?

I think it should be discourse/rails based probably as that is where most of the users profile is housed (although it doesn’t need to be).

Can anyone find other discourse or react sites which have done this successfully for us to discuss?

@UXers @RubyonRails @ReactMeteor what do you guys think?
