Through the friends and leaderboards feature, readers can add other readers on their organization's Beanstack site as friends. Friends can then view each other's reading logs and statistics, challenge histories, and recent reading progress, as well as compete with each other on their leaderboards.
Before adding friends or sharing a friend code for the first time, readers will see a privacy notice pop up. This informs them that anyone at their organization whom they add as a friend or with whom they share their friend code can see their reading activity, like the titles they log and the badges they earned. If the notice is not accepted, readers will not be able to proceed to add friends or share a friend code. If the privacy notice is accepted, readers can always remove friends at any time.
Each reader in an account adds and manages their own set of friends. Account creators under the age of 13 are not able to add friends or generate a share code.
