‘Add a Friend’ Feature Updates

18 December, 2023 | Blog, Features

At NomadMania, we’ve always believed that travel is better when shared. It’s all about the community and obviously nothing beats personal interaction. So, in order to establish more horizontal connections between travellers from all over the world we are proud to announce something extra special.

Meet our brand new feature – “Add a Friend” 🙂

What’s “Add a Friend” all about?

With this awesome new feature, you can now connect with fellow NomadMania explorers like never before. Whether you’ve met them on the road, share travel interests, or simply want to expand your global network, “Add a Friend” makes it a breeze.


How does it work?


1. Find Your Travel Buddy

Simply visit someone’s NomadMania profile and look for the “Add as Friend” button. It’s right there, waiting for you to click and connect.


2. Manage Your Friends

You can accept or deny friends requests on My Friends page in the upper right corner of your screen.

It’s your hub for managing your NomadMania connections. Also track your sent requests on the same page. No more missed connections – your travel buddies are just a click away!


3. Stay Updated

Once you’ve received a friend request or have been accepted by a friend, you’ll receive an email notification.


4. Follow Your Friends’ Travel Updates

From now on your can see detailed travel updates during the last 30 days including visited new regions, series, added friends and photos.



We know that the best travel stories are created when shared with friends, old and new. So, go ahead, explore the world, and make memories together.

Updates 18/12/2023

We’re super excited to roll out significant enhancements to our ‘Add a Friend’ feature, making your travel connections even more meaningful and personalized. So, what’s new?


1. See More of Your Friends’ Travels

Longer Timeline: Now, you can see what your friends have been up to for the past 90 days! This means more photos, more travel stories, and more fun stuff to look at.


2. Special Spot for World Heritage Sites

WHS Section: We’ve made a special place on your profile for World Heritage Sites. If you or your friends visit these amazing places, they’ll show up here. It’s a great way to see and share cool spots around the world.


3. You Choose Who Sees Your Stuff

Privacy Settings: Want to keep your travels just between friends? Or maybe you don’t want anyone to see? No problem! You can now choose who gets to see your travel updates. There are three choices: everyone can see (Public), only friends can see (Friends Only), or no one can see (Hidden).

4. Enhanced Friendship Management

Add or Unfriend Easily: You can now add new friends with just a click. And if you ever need to, you can stop being friends just as easily. It’s all about making you feel comfortable with your friend list.


We are constantly upgrading our functionality to make your time on NomadMania even better. So, stay tuned fro more stuff. In a meantime, if you have any suggestions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
