Add friends without using social network
It would be good to have a way of adding frineds without having to be a member of Facebook or another social network.
Added to v.3.8
I dont have social media and I would like to add friends on here. If your going to keep Facebook add on here could you at least add another way to add friend without it be with social media!
I never had a FB and I wont have it just to see friends on Waze. I think Waze will lose popularity like this.
Why has my contacts that I added in waze just disappeared it’s only showing Facebook friends not all my contacts was on Facebook so now I’ve lost them all . Why try and fix something that wasn’t broken by messing around with this app so annoying
Why the FB requirement? I don’t want Russian trolls following my rides. Bad move google.
Like everyone else, I don't wants to use facebook to add friend, try it with unique code or username or tellphone number to add and search friends.
My dad and most family members don't use social media.
I hope you guys will come to this solution.
Get rid of the Facebook requirement
Love Waze but very disappointed that FB is now required to add friends. Please change back to allow non-FB friends to connect on Waze.
Bad move from waze to remove friends not having fb.
My husband is not on FB- I can I even share a ride with him? I don’t understand why friends are now only FB friends. By the way Waze support was NOT helpful when trying to figure this out!

Same with me: I'm with Waze for many-many years. My Friends disappeared and can't follow their rides. It was a very important feature. I'm not on Facebook and do not want to join only because of this.
Why can't Waze simply use the contacts as previoulsy?
I do not have FB account, neither I want it... also a lot of my friends. So, Waze admin, do not force us somthing we do not want. Otherwise, bye to Waze.
Need to get my friends back. This app lost a key feature. It's not so valuable anymore and needto stay long at other options unless this is connected.
I DO NOT want to have to use facebook to add my friends on WAZE.
Please fix this back to the way it used to be.

Latest versions of Waze requires Facebook account to add Friends. This really sucks. Please come back with the Friends function without Facebook.
Waze was once easy to use and came in handy when it comes to notifying friends of your ETA, etc. I don't use Facebook, can't add my friends and it seems now Waze is less accurate at notifying me of slow/standstill traffic than Google Maps or even the Apple map on my iPhone, so why even bother? I'm going to give it a few more weeks and if nothing improves, I'll go to another App (WITHOUT ALL THE ADVERTISEMENTS AND CARPOOL OFFERS.) or use Google.
Need to add friends on waze without using Facebook!!!Not everyone uses social media to connect. What was a great app for traveling is now a PIECE S#€
Why can't I add friends directly from my contacts? The help center tells me I can add friends from my contacts. It tells me to give Waze permission to access my contacts from the privacy settings on my phone and then I should be able to add friend. However, the only option I am presented is to connect with Facebook. Not happening! Please fix this!

I am not a fan of most social media, my wife and I need to be able to add friends via our phones contact list which currently does not appear to be an option. We have tried the help screen method to add contacts but in the end it will only allow us to add friends using Facebook, not what we want, in fact the 2 friends I had from my phone contacts seem to have disappeared.
I can agree with the latest posts.
I don't want to use malafide Facebook.
So... I can't use Waze anymore on my new phone?
So, Waze = Zuckerberg?
