Friends, relatives? I'm trying inviting my Facebook friends at least but with very little success. Most of them just register and hibernate in the leaderboard with 0 points. :/

I believe I've gotten about 15 people to join DL who are on and off active (including my siblings). But, I've told so many people about it, I have lost count. :)

Three of my friends, one of them gave up after two minutes (a literal two minutes) and another who I believe is sticking to the site. The other said "Duolingo is dodgy, I'm not using it" because he got an answer wrong and couldn't admit it :P

0 of 2 so far :(

I figure the best way to get them to stick at it is to lead by example, so in a year or so when we are hopefully proficient in our chosen languages, they will be impressed when they see this and think "Wow, I could do that too!"

I don't recruit, I just make comments on facebook. I know 1 person downloaded the app but for privacy reasons did not set up DL with a fb login.

You don't have to sign up with Facebook.

https://www.duolingo.com/traveler3

I know and so does my friend. They use DL but when I asked to have them connect via fb they didn't want to because DL user agreement says it will go into friends, etc. They love the software, just don't want DL going into their profile.

I wouldn't want that either. I hate Facebook personally and deleted mine long ago.

Ask me on my stream(I don't really want to talk about it here, because this thread isn't called "Where Ben got his Avatars").

Quite a few, but most people will just get it and just stop after a lesson or two.
