Waze should allow users to add friends through their emails or phone number. Not everyone has Facebook.
Waze should allow users to add friends through their emails or phone number as oppose to just Facebook. I've a lot of friends who have Waze but not Facebook and we can't add each other which is a shame.
PLEASE JUST FIX THIS RIGHT AWAY SO I CAN CONTINUE TO USE AWESOME WAZE!
WHAT A TERRIBLE IDEA TO REQUIRE US TO ALLOW FACEBOOK FRIENDS TO BE ACCESSED BYYOUR APP. NOT A POPULAR IDEA AND I CAN'T IMAGINE IT IS ANYTHING ANYONE WOULD WANT TO DO. CERTAINLY NOT ME. IF WAZE CANNOT BE BETTER CONTROLLED BY THE USER, AND LIMITED FOR PERSONAL SAFETY AND PREFERENCES, THE POPULARITY OF WAZE WILL CERTAINLY DISSOLVE AND BE REPLACED BY A MORE USER FRIENDLY APP - WHICH WOULD BE VERY SAD, SINCE IN ALL OTHER WAZE, WAZE IS TOTALLY AWSOME. :(
I WILL ADD THAT WHOEVER THERE AT WAZE, INC. THOUGHT REQUIRING WAZE USERS TO LET WAZE POST AND ACCESS THEIR FACEBOOK PAGE SHOULD BE FIRED ... WHAT A HORRIBLE DECISION AND A GOOD WAY TO REALLY MAKE YOUR USER POPULATION MAD ... IF IT HAPPENS TO BE THE PRESIDENT, ITS TIME TO STEP DOWN AND LET SOMEONE ELSE RUN THE COMPANY. SORRY - BUT TRUE - AND NOW I CAN'T COMMUNICATE WITH MY NEW BABYSITTER THROUGH WAZE BECAUSE I CAN'T ADD HER AS A FRIEND. TIME TO LOOK FOR A NEW SOLUTION. SAD SAD SAD :(

Integrate with Xmpp Texting. Search for base JID.
No one I know uses sms texting.
Take this one step further and allow searches by USERNAME.
This seed of EVIL has taken root in "upgraded" versions.
I do not have facebook. But I do have twitter and gmail, so why can't I add people from there?
I don't trust social media. I just want a few friends from my email on here.
