Direct link to share with my friends

Hi there, I met you at the kidslinked event last week. I'm trying to get into using your app and getting my friends interested in it, but am running into a few things. First, it really is a bit difficult adding friends to my network. It just seems like a lot of hoops to jump through to send them my link. They have to sign up and find me instead of sending an easy and direct link to my network. I want my friends to sign up, but it just doesn't seem like it is easy for them to sign up either. One friend said she was having problems signing up tonight. If I am inviting someone to my village, I would think sending them a direct link would be easier and eliminate the need to approve them as well. Maybe it could be simple, like a FB friend request. Right now, I also cannot see which friends have even signed up. I just have to guess and type in their name? Also...so far I have connected with one friend. Will it be easier to navigate requests when there are more people in my network? Right now it just isn't pulling me in, with the current setup. Maybe once the invitation problem is remedied, when

Hi Michelle, 

Thanks for sharing your experience. This is important stuff for us to know! We want to make Komae as easy as possible for people to sign up and connect. Unfortunately technology is not always our friend. The invitation process is something we're working to improve. 

One thing to keep in mind is that Facebook is super easy to invite people to because everyone is already in Facebook. So you're simply inviting existing users. Since Komae is so new, you get to invite friends to join for the first time! And we do want to make sure it's private and secure fit parents so we don't list all existing users for people to pick from. 

Have you linked your account to Facebook yet? Once you do that you can see Facebook friends that have joined Komae. And you can send private messages to friends inviting them to join Komae.  Here's a quick video with tips in how to do it- https://youtu.be/BqLfWna9OCY

We have a giveaway going right now so the more people you get to join, the more chances you have to win a $100 gift card! Check out our Facebook page for details- https://www.facebook.com/mykomae/

Thanks again for signing up and sharing! And keep sharing your experience and ideas.

Also, I was trying to continue this post, but the text was under the hyperlinks and prevented me from continuing. Probably just a mobile device flaw.
