Friends system, activity feed & more!

What is life without friends? It’s something we’ve been asking ourselves recently, and now we can tell you why! Miniclip.com has received a big update behind the scenes that adds a ton of new and exciting social features. The first of these are rolling out now, while many more are still to come. Now, let’s go through what has already launched:

FRIENDS

Firstly, the new friends system! This is pretty simple if you’ve played video games in the last decade. Friending another player adds them to your friends list, an easy way to keep track of the people you are close to. Don’t worry if you are being friended by people you don’t want to though – it’s very easy to block other players and avoid unwanted attention.

You can now search for players in exactly the same way you do games. Type their name or their unique player ID number into the search bar (the same one you use for games!) and you’ll be able to find them.

ACTIVITY FEED

Another new feature is the Activity Feed, a running ticker on the right hand side of every game page that lets you know what your friends and other players are up to on Miniclip. Keep an eye on it and who knows, you might see somebody beating your highscore or even discover some cool new games. If the Activity Feed distracts you however, there is an easy pause button that stops it in its tracks.

TIMELINE

Finally, your profile page now features a Timeline that gives you an easy glance at what you’ve been doing on Miniclip recently. Games played, awards earned, scores logged and more will appear in this look back at previous gaming glories. Played a game a while back but don’t remember its name? Just check your Timeline! You can also visit the profiles of other players and see what they have been up to, an easy way to keep track of your friends.

The best news of all is that this is just phase one of our huge update. Even more new social features are on the way to help you connect with your friends and fellow gamers.

    • No kidding! You don’t have these great features on iPads et al devices! ONLY ON PC. NICE TO KNOW EVERYONE can look at what IM DOING, but I can’t keep up with it myself! I call BULL…blank. Booooo.

      Very misleading. And very invasive. In my opinion.

  1. Activity update makes more connectivity, it’d be great if we could turn off “My Activity” to others (turn on as well)..also looking forward to see a public comment box or message feature. 😉

  2. Hello Miniclip 8 ball pool gang. I quickly became an addict after my first few games. I especially love my “CZAR” cue. I spent alot of money on a very nice table but I seem to be the only one that can see it. Is there a setting or something that I can be able to show my opponents my nice table? Thanks again for the hundreds of hours that will be spent playing the greatest game in the world, MINICLIP 8 BALL POOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Love the pool game; been playing for years

    that said;

    Can miniclip PLEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAASE come up with a better rating system; meaning that beginner players should not be able to play vs any player that is a 20 or more rating higher. So tired of sitting through games vs players that have no idea how to play; and instead just bash balls all over the table.

    Keep up the good work

  4. I have tried all suggestions to try to add friends but it only takes me to the home page. totally frustrating! you make it sound simple until it doesn’t work. help please
