The mod adds a friends menu which can be open over the key F4 (this can be changed in the controls options).
The menus for the various friends can be opened and closed with a right click.
When you receive a chat message you can press F6 to open the chat.
In FriendsOverlay you can add friends, so you can see when they are online. If they play on a server, you can join them. Also you can chat with your friends, so if you meet someone on a server who has also FriendsOverlay you can just add him as friend and then chat with him. When you want to tweet something and don’t want to open twitter in your browser, you can post your message directly from FriendsOverlay in twitter. If any of your friends go online or you recieve a message, there will be displayed a notification so you will never miss it.
