Please swap the Add Friend and Follow buttons on profile pages

The default for profiles should include the follow button in a more prominent place or the same place as the friendship button. Newer users will see ‘Add Friend’ first and not bother to click the dots to open a menu that the follow button feels buried inside.

Since there’s a maximum friend limit, the current situation makes no logical sense. Overtime users should have more followers than friends regardless of the type of user they are and this should be encouraged. Further, following as a concept is a good way to get to know a user you wish to befriend at a later date anyway therefore making it a good structure to build upon.
