The new feature has arrived!

Ladies and Gentlemen... and everyone in-between... we proudly present Newgrounds Social!

Currently, this feature is simply a proper way to add and organize friendships. We will slowly be integrating these friend lists into various features across the site.

The first feature we integrated it with was our API. Once you get a friend or two on your list, check out any game that uses our high score tables, or offers user-generated content that your friends have been playing and you will see you can filter the in-page items to only show stuff posted by your friends.

To get started, go play these:

  • Rats Away
    Rats Away by gamezhero

    apply your skills and to make any tricks because rats are not the most stupid opponent

    Score
    3.63 / 5.00
    Type
    Game
    Popularity
    5,821 Views
    Rated
    Everyone
  • Carve n' Share
    Carve n' Share by Evil-Dog

    Carve your nightmarish vision of halloween on your pumkpin and share it with Newgrounds!

    Score
    4.31 / 5.00

I plan on getting these lists worked into the PM system soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Don't say I never gave you anything for xmas!

Newgrounds Family.

Browsing the Popular Art section has never been more domestic.


A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.

I'm not sure how I feel about this, but.. It might not be that bad. As long as you don't turn NG into a social network where you remove the forums and replace them with the Newgrounds Social thing.

Is there a reward for the lest amount of friends made on here? If so, I'm in the game.

My non-existent nightmare has come true.

While it sounds good, I quite liked the days of 'old' when you had to manually remember each username.

Obviously Newgrounds is going to become a highly competitive community where everyone seeks the highest Friend count.

It was never a big difference between fans and friends. Now we have to seperate this? Newgrounds is turning to Facebook, and I never liked Facebook...

lmao stop being stupid.
the friend system is more than a friend system. I'm pretty sure they created it for fun competition between friends(look at first post).

also if NG was turning into facebook, then you would have to pay to promote each newspost, you dont see that happening right?

I noticed another feature, I believe it was added today too. You can see the smiley face on the reply of a thread when you look at an user's "all posts"!

Oh wait, that feature has already been there but the smiley face is just a picture the user had posted.
Now I feel stupid.

Although my initial response was "okay, how is this much different from favorites?", I do think this could be a good tool for collaborators who want to maintain a list of contacts that reside on Newgrounds. Being able to organize your contacts is a nice addition too.

This, and also I feel like everyone that thinks newgrounds is turning into facebook is thinking of the BBS as the entirety of the site. I'm fairly sure the point is mostly to add people and compare high scores and shit.
