Ask Emerson

Dear Emerson,

I was hoping you could give me a friendly reminder of what information I am allowed to exchange with my e-Buddy. I asked my e-Buddy for her phone number but she said that was against the rules. Could you please tell me what we can and cannot exchange between us? Can we be friends on Facebook?

Thank you so much!

Sincerely,
Layla in Louisiana

Dear Layla,

Thank you so much for your question. We do not allow the exchange of phone numbers, addresses, e-mail addresses and Facebook accounts. If you notice, you always e-mail your e-Buddy at the address ebuddy@ebuddies.org. That is because the e-Buddies E-mail System is able to recognize your account and knows who to send the e-mail to. This is one of the many features that keeps e-Buddies safe. Safety is also the main reason why we do not allow Facebook contact. Please remember not to contact your e-Buddy outside of the e-Buddies E-mail System.

Thank you for being such a great e-Buddy!

Signing off,
Emerson
