Meeting people on VRChat is curiously odd for a social app. While we can see where our “friends” are and can join them we cannot do that for members of groups that we belong to. So for instance I can belong to a group with 900 members, I can see that 55 are online at the moment but I cannot locate those people.
Keep in mind I’m talking about people that belong to the same “group” (we voluntarily joined). So finding them, chatting a bit and then asking to become friends isn’t totally out of the question.
I don’t have a lot of people marked as friends and I (and others) often get online to find maybe 10 friends online with 5 of them in private worlds. That doesn’t offer a lot of opportunities except to jump into some public world. Who knows who those people are and what are we supposed to do, ask each of them if they belong to the “Udon Programmers” group?
Again, if there are 30 of them online they could be having an interesting chat but until I can find them (which I can’t) and can make them friends I cannot join the chat.
Seems unnecessarily limiting to me.
