      I’ve installed the plugin and its work as I want. Thanks for the plugin. But I want to hide the friendship notification for this particular user (The user which I’ve added in the plugin), so can you tell me how to do that because it doesn’t looks good for the new users who sign-up in my website and automatically gets the friendship notification without sending friend request.
