As soon as you launch the game software you will notice a number of tabs just above the table of game information. By default you
are viewing "Games" but you can also switch to "Messages", "Friends", "Store" and "Offers"
Hit the "Friends" tab to see your friend list. Once you have friends you can then see when they are online and send them messages.
If you have more than 15 friends then it makes sense to subscribe to the Premium Membership
which allows you to have up to 100 friends at NoPayPOKER!
