You can compete against other players on the leaderboard to see who is the best at finding June's clues! The leaderboard consists of your Facebook friends who currently play and other June's Journey fans who share certain characteristics with you (location and join time). This way, you are able to enjoy the friends feature even if you are not connected to Facebook or do not have many Facebook friends playing!
We would like to assure you that your information is not shared with any other players, and their information is not shared with you.
If you are having trouble seeing your Facebook friends in your game, here are some steps you can try:
For mobile: Uninstall and reinstall both the June's Journey and Facebook apps. This should re-sync your Facebook friends list.
For web: Go to (https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=applications) and locate June's Journey. Remove/delete the game and then add it again via this link (https://apps.facebook.com/junesjourney). Return to the first link and click the pencil icon. Ensure that 'Friends List' is checked.
Your friends should appear on your leaderboard as long as they are playing June's Journey and have earned a score in the scene you are looking at.
You can send a gift to these same friends from your boat! Read about that here.
