Contacts are SharpCloud users who you know or are connected with through your activities. You become contacts automatically when you receive share a story with another user or if they share a story with you.
For some operations it is useful to select a SharpCloud user from your list of contacts.
You can add a user to your contacts by entering their email address. If the person is not yet a SharpCloud member you are offered the chance to invite them to join SharpCloud. However we would suggest that you invite them through the share story screen as this way they will not only receive an invite to join but will have a great first experience through interacting with your story.
