Readers – Finding People, Friends, & Communities

The simplest way to find people in Edelweiss is to search for them while viewing your profile, which you can reach by simply clicking on your profile picture or initials at the top of any Edelweiss+ screen, then Your Profile and Account to find your Friends Search.


You can search for people by searching for their name (first or last…or both) or by searching for them using their email address. Click on their profile to either send them a message (email) or to send them a Friend Invitation. Connecting with another user as a Friend allows you to see their shelf and review activity, assuming they approve your friend request, of course.

You’ll find your own Friend Requests in your Profile here:



Or in your Notifications widget on your homepage:

When you’ve connected with someone, you’ll find them in your People page and dashboard lane:

And their activity will be added to your Friends section of your Buzz page:

See details here about joining and interacting with your Communities!

Once you have friends added you’ll automatically receive emails notifying you of their title activity, such as any reviews they post or titles they add to a Shelf. If you no longer wish to receive emails with your friends’ activity (reviews and shelves), click on your Profile image or initials and select Communication settings:

In the pop-up then select the box next to Unsubscribe from friend emails. See more about managing your Edelweiss and Community Newsletters here.
