From the Home Screen click on the "Connections" Button and find the contact you want to add as a favorite.
Select the person you want to add to your "favorites" list. This will be particularly useful as you meet more people and your network grows.
To make this person a "favorite" simply press the star icon next to their profile. The Star will change color indicating that this person is now listed as a favorite.
To find favorites in your contacts press the "Options" button located in the upper right corner below the bell.
Change the "Sort By" method to Favorites
Now only those listed as "favorites" will show up on your list. You can change the sort by method back to First or Last Names when you're done.
