There are a few ways to tell if you’re friends with someone on Learn. You could hover over a student’s avatar, which reveals a hovercard. If you’re friends with someone, the hovercard will display the status “Friends”. The hovercard will also reveal whether you have a pending request to or from that student. If no friendship or pending requests exist, you’ll see the option to send a friend request to that student.
You could also check the student’s profile page or your friends page. If you’re friends with someone, a green button reading “Friends” will appear on the student’s profile page.
In addition, the activity feed on your friends page will only display activities from your friends.
