We have been working to make Dawlish Beach more like a social media site.

Over time more people become friends and interact more often than others so you can now chat to individuals as well as all through an activity timeline.

You will see a new DB Social menu button at the top of the site where you can get involved with others much like Facebook but just for Dawlish Beach.

To view current members click here and you can add friends from the list. The list will populate as more people log in to Dawlish Beach.

Also once you are friends with others you can chat privately with each other by clicking the Available button (see below).

This will initiate a private chat between you and another DB subscriber. to close the private chat just click the cog at the top right of the chat and then click ‘Leave Chat’.
