Am also:

on uPlay.

uPlay offers an option to import your Steam friends list (I guess it knows which are also on uPlay or something?), but it seems to require making your Steam profile 'public,' which not everybody wants to do.

Oh really?  I've never seen that.  I wonder if it's new?  How do you get to that option?

EDIT: Hmm, I guess I see in the Settings that I had Account Linking set up already.  Maybe it's been silently adding some friends to my list or something?

Engy, if you click the 'friends' icon up top in uPlay interface, then click "+Add Friends," the resulting pop-up window has a blue "Import Friends from Steam" button. I'm not certain what it does; I assumed it would add Steam friends IF they're on uPlay too, duno for sure.

As far as account linking goes, I thought that was more a function used so that if if you bought a game via Steam but play it actually through uPlay (a la The Division), then uPlay automatically would launch when starting the game from Steam. If that's not too confusing.  icon_smile And of course I could be wrong. The whole "buy a game on one service to play it on a different service" makes my head spin.

Ooh, neato!  I hit that button and it did come up with a big list of people on my Steam list that also have a Uplay name that I could add.  Mass invites sent, haha!

Aah yeah, you're probably right about that.  Duh, didn't even occur to me.
