A. Friends and Followers Makes ROBLOX More Social, and Even More Fun
ROBLOX has more than 4.5 million active players every month. Many of you have told us that you want a more complete social experience. You want to be able to play and play games with your friends. You want to be able to assess how well you are doing in relation to your friends in each game. You want to be able to create games with these social aspects in mind. Basically, you told us that friends should be able to play and compete with each other easily. Friends and Followers is a new way to make social connections on ROBLOX and a resource that lays the foundation for these exciting social gaming and game development opportunities.
1. What is a friend
Friends are founded when two ROBLOX users agree to befriend. When starting Friends and Followers, you can have a maximum of 200 friends. This scale makes it easy for you and your friends to play together on public games and VIP servers and allows us to post useful functions based on friends in the future (for more information, see “Why do we switch to friends and followers?”) This).
2. What is a trailer?
A follower, on the other hand, is created when a person is following another user’s activity. Imagine following someone you find interesting, for example, B. a popular game developer on a social network. This is an easy way to keep up to date with what your favorite developers are playing and doing. You can follow an unlimited number of players.
3. What happened to my ex-best friends and friends?
Don’t worry, they’re still here – you haven’t lost anyone! We increased the Best Friends limit to 200 in October to make the new friendship seem easier for everyone. Here’s what happened today:
- Anyone who was a mutual best friend before today is now a friend
- Anyone who was a best friend or non-mutual friend before today is now a follower
You are now also a follower of everyone who was friends before this update.
4. Why do we pass it on to friends and followers?
You, the ROBLOX community, told us that friends should be able to play and compete easily with each other. We have already made progress with the launch of VIP servers that you can now designate as pure friends by launching friends and followers (instead of whitelisting certain people manually).
The system of friends and followers creates more meaningful connections between ROBLOX members. It also opens up opportunities for other interesting features, such as:
- A smart feed that you can filter between friends and followers
- Leaderboards for friends only
- A more robust party system for players
- A developer API to use the player’s friends and followers networks
- Recommendations based on what your friends are playing and buying
Guest Quest is a great new dungeon tracker that you can play with friends.
5. How do I manage my friends and followers?
You can manage (that is, add or remove) your friend list by visiting your friend page. We’ve added a new Followers tab to this page to help manage the people you follow.
After reaching a maximum of 200 friends, you will no longer be able to submit requests until you remove an existing friend. You will continue to receive friend requests. Before adopting one, however, you will need to reduce the number of your existing friends to less than 200.
To follow another player, simply visit their profile page and click on the new “Follow” button.
As always, you can control who can send friend requests and whether people can follow you in your account settings.

B. How to Make Friends on ROBLOX
Having trouble making friends at Roblox? Then you’ve come to the right place. Roblox is a huge platform with tons of user-created games that are fun on their own, but having friends makes the experience a lot more fun. Making friends online is very easy compared to real life, and sometimes they even become your closest friends.
a. Do not obstruct your list of friends
Having a list of friends full of random people can be very inconvenient, and sometimes people can even get impatient for you to open a place for them, especially if your internet or computer is running slow. Some things to avoid are:
- Accept friend requests from random people
- Sending friend requests to random people
- Adding someone to your friends list for a bad reason (for example, cool or expensive items)
b. Do not be quick enough to fend off inactive players
Many people who are inactive do not remain inactive forever, perhaps they are on vacation, perhaps they have been temporarily banned, perhaps they are preparing for exams. Whatever the reason, don’t be quick enough to undo them. Do not hesitate either, or you will end up with a list of friends full of inactive players. The friends section of this home page (pictured above) is a good example of a good number of active friends.
c. Consider your fashion choice
Try not to dress in standard clothes (example in the middle). Most people see you as a beginner or a child, as people tend to judge by how people look. Try playing with skin tones (example on the right), as they are free and more experienced players tend to do so. Also, be creative and try out free items from the catalog. You can also win event items, they are free, they generally look good and it shows that you are an experienced player. Try to be unique (example on the left), so you will be noticed and people may want to know you. Wear whatever suits you and represents you as an individual.
2. Stand out there
a. Participate in a social or communication game
This way, you will make friends easier. You are more likely to make friends in games like Roblox High School than in games like Phantom Forces. While making a friend in the Phantom Forces is not impossible, it is unlikely.
b. Start small
Do not try to join a large group of people alone. They can be ignored, fired, or even not even aware of you. If you end up doing this, you will probably be alienated and forced to listen without saying a word, mainly because they are telling jokes and talking about people, things or experiences you don’t know. It can be successful, but only if you are a social butterfly, but if you were you would not be reading this article. Try to make friends with a person or join a group of 2, 3 when you feel comfortable. You are unlikely to meet a large group of friends on the first try.
c. Be interesting when approaching people
If you say “hello”, you’re probably not going anywhere and you may feel awkward or uninteresting. Try to point out something that interests you, for example, “Hey, beautiful shirt, I love this band”. This will start a conversation, try to keep it going, for example, “What other bands do you like?” From then on, the conversation flows naturally and you get to know each other. However, try not to be too stubborn, be nice and outgoing. Being too stubborn can lead to heated debate. This can lead to bitterness and dislike for each other, which greatly reduces the chances of becoming good friends. Keep all debates civilized and friendly, even if it still doesn’t work for that person, you will appear accessible to others.
d. Be yourself
Yes, it looks extravagant, but it works. In doing so, you will attract people with similar ideas and similar personalities. You are more likely to get along with these people. At Roblox, you find dozens, if not hundreds, of people every day, unlike real life, where your options are quite limited. So you don’t have to worry if the people you meet don’t have a lot in common with you. You will definitely find someone. Pretending a personality just to be friends with someone when that person is very different from you can be exhausting and you can be dissatisfied with your friendship.
e. Join a group
There are a few groups in Roblox that you can socialize with and make friends with, usually through a Discord server or a Roblox hangout. While it is very difficult to find an active group that you belong to, this is a great way to meet new people.
f. Be nice and help people
Not only will being a good person encourage others to get closer to you, but you will also be more likely to keep friends that way, as most people prefer to have people around them who make them feel good about themselves. Helping people is also a great way to make friends. Whether they are borrowing an in-game item or helping them recover a hacked account, it can also give you a good reputation and make you look very accessible to others. Although you are careful, if you are too generous, some people can exploit you.
h. Don’t judge someone by things like their clothes
You may look at someone in standard clothing and think that person is not worth your time, but that person may turn out to be one of your best friends. It also makes you look friendly and approachable to others. When you reject someone for that reason, you seem critical and petty.
i. Find a way to communicate outside of Roblox
This is useful for building friendships. If something happens to someone’s Roblox account, for example, For example, if someone is hacked or fired, you can communicate with that person easily. Platforms like Discord are suitable for this. Do not provide any personal information, such as address, phone number, full name, etc. This must be common sense.
