How to search for a friend?

I can't find the option to search for my buddy that I want to monitor and make sure he does his duolingo daily. How? Please help.

ps: he doesn't have facebook so thats not an option.

Thanks for the reply. I'm currently following 3 people but it seems like the follow people search option went away. I'm just trying to search for a friend by his user name and make sure he's not bs ing me when he says he's practicing his English. But I can't find that option anymore....

If you know his username, just adjust the URL. Your username URL is , his would be whatever he signed up with.

Hello, do you want to search by username? Duolingo has an inbuilt function for that. Just go to "Home" and you will see a leaderboard on the right hand side. Below that you will see several options like invite search facebook and search. Search is what you want.
