Students not seeing friends

My students aren't seeing friends or friend lists or the activity of friends and they can't message them. What's going on?

Have you turned off the "Social features" in your "Student privacy settings"?

Hmmm. There's a poorly-thought-through A/B test going on at the moment - Duolingo are experimenting with getting rid of activity streams. As a short-term work around, your students will be able to see their own and each others' activity streams if they log out, or use a private browsing / incognito window.

Duolingo isn't really designed for communication. Assuming your school has a VLE, you might want to set something up for your class on your course page.
