I want to add friends to "compete" with

When I type a name of a friend from Facebook in the search window, it doesn't look for them. It only shows FB friends who i guess are already using the app and gives me the option to "follow" them. I want to send an invite to other friends. It let me do that one day but now it isn't giving me that option.

There is a button under the leaderboard that says: 'Find more friends on Facebook'. Click that.

yes, that's what I am clicking. A pop up starts to launch but quits and then I have a search window but it doesn' work, then the list of people already signed up to "follow"..... Before the pop up worked and let me search and invite any friend...I want it to work again :)

The pop up launching and quitting is Duo logging on to Facebook. Are you logged into fb on the device you are currently using? If so, try logging out and then trying this again. Then, at that stage, you will have to manually login. Check if it works this way.

I tried logging out and back into FB and same thing happening. I get the list of people already on the app and a search window that just searches the list of people already signed up. :/ Thanks for trying to help! I sent a request for help to the app people.

No problem... I'm guessing you're doing this on your phone/tablet. Maybe try doing it on your PC?

There should be an option to type an email address, and send them an invite. Do you see it?

yes, thanks, but I don't know their emails so I'd like it if the FB invite would work.... thanks
