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

Give us a WAZE-ONLY-NO-FACEBOOK friend list.
I don't want all my eggs in the same basket
Planning on deleting my FB account soon and have been avoiding Google+. I support the xmpp idea below.

Agree - I also think about proposing to use Waze for school bus so that all the parents/students know whether the bus will delay or not. With this they have no need to stand in the snow/rain waiting for the bus for too long. The ability to add member/group w/o FB will help support this usage.
Moreover, it should be great if the friends appear on the map in real time. It is useful / nice when several friends go to the same destination to see them.
Yes, i don't understant why its not possible to add a wazer that i met during a travel without add him on FB... Soooooo boring.
it's so annoying to be required to sing in to facebook when you indeed don't want nor have a facebook account!
YES! I don't want to be held hostage to social networking sites!
Agreed. I don't have a Facebook and only about half my friends do. An FB-only connection is totally lame, so noughties.
It would be a fantastic (and very necessary imho) addition to the Waze interface. Not only that, but adding its own in-house database of drivers gives it an extra private asset that can then be used later without having to go through a 3rd party.
