Friends & Other Site Updates
This one’s been a long time in the making, but today we’re excited to ship our second major update to the site. Here’s a rundown of what’s new:
Part of our mission at PeakBucket is to enable our users to share their activity the way they want. To further this goal, we’ve added friendships. We opted to implement a friend/unfriend paradigm (as opposed to a follow/unfollow one) for a few reasons:
Private Users: One in three PeakBucket users are private. Friendships give these users the option to selectively share their activity with friends.
Features: Friendships provide an unlock for a number of features on our roadmap:
- Users can now tag friends as companions on their activities.
- Users who are tagged as a companion in a friend’s activity can now copy it to their profile (vs. adding it themselves).
- There are more friendship-related features in the works, so stay tuned!

That’s it for big ticket items. Drop us a line if you have feedback, and be sure to check back soon for our next update!
