Students

Now students can find and make friends and manage those relationships in a unique way!

If you are under 18, one of your parent's need to register you. Ask them to sign up and register you as well. They can do this for all your brothers and sisters under 18. The first 1 month is free!

Once registered you will receive your login details via email. You can then login and start searching for new friends. Once you wish to make a friend that you have found, you will need to send them a contact request before you can start chatting with them. (We call this a "Wave"). This allows them to either accept or reject your request. If they accept, you will then be connected and they will appear in your "Friends" list. You can then instant chat with them.

You can have as many friends as you like, and can add friends to your chats and create groups, for example a "rowing team" group. This will make it easy for you to quickly chat with that group of contacts. You can add to or remove any users from any of your groups at anytime.

If you no longer wish to have another user as a friend, you can unlink or block them from having any contact with you.

Your parent that signs you up will be able to setup when you can access Chatterbugs, including the days of the week and times. This helps them encourage you to have a balance in your life regarding accessing social platforms like this one. 

Your parents can also decide if they want you to be able to setup and create events. These include parties, socials, sporting meetings, etc.
