Switching the contact type


Hi there,

how can I change a contact from #Friend to #Subscriber and vice-versa?

Thanks!

#help #friendica #contacts
#Friend #Subscriber #help #friendica #contacts contacts friendica help

I haven't seen that in the Help anywhere, but you could note their network name, Drop them, then Add them again. I'm still new to Friendica, though, so don't take this as gospel.

Eventually I got how to do it...

First: you go to contact icon on top (it depends by your theme) and it opens a list of your contacts

Second: each contact as a row of small icons you have to press the one with the tooltip that says "view contact".

Third: on the status' contact there is a button with a label "disconnect/unfollow", when it says that it means you are friends each others, when it says "connect/follow" it means the contact is "a fan of your". While disconnecting from a friend is invisible for the other reconvert it in a friend activates a notification to that contact.
