If you have friends in Carb Manager, you can view each other’s daily log, progress, and foods, have conversations, and help each other achieve your goals. Unlike My Feed, where you will only see recent messages with your friends, connecting with your friends through their profile allows you to review your whole message history and start new conversations.

Tip: To change the name that appears when you send messages to friends, see Change your public username

Read and send messages to friends

  1. Go to Connect.
  2. Select the Profile tab if it’s not already selected. Recent messages between you and your friends appear in the My Feed section of the Profile tab, where you can read and reply to any conversation.
  3. Go to the Friends section of the Profile tab and select a friend to open their profile screen. If you don’t see the friend you want, select Friends to view all of your friends, then select a friend.
  4. In your friend’s profile screen, select the Connect tab, where you can see all conversations between you and your friend and start a new conversation.
Warning: all conversations are public to your friend network and show in the My Feed section of Connect.
  1. To send a message, do the following steps.
    • Enter a message in the field near the top of the screen. Or select Reply below a message and enter your message in the field that appears below the message.
    • Select Send. Your message appears in the friend’s message feed and your message feed on the Profile tab.
  2. When you’re done reading and posting messages, select in the top-left corner to close the friend’s profile screen.
Tip: You can “like” messages in your feed by tapping the heart symbol.
Note: If at any time you notice inappropriate messages, use the Flag feature to report it to Carb Manager.

Recipients receive email and device notifications (if enabled) when they have new messages in Carb Manager.
