I just went to the language editor and searched for "are now friends" and changed them. I don't know if it worked or not, but I did the same for "My Friends" and changed those all to connections, and that seems to have worked. My Page now has a My Connections box instead of a My Friends box.
i did the same procedure but mine is not changing. I tried it some months back but it never worked.
Maybe you might consider changing more text containing friends in the editor...otherwise it might be confusion. I managed to changed almost all except the nows friends.
I think it makes more sense using connections/connected than friends because you can be connected to people without necessarily being their friend.
I'm going to bump this up because I'm having the same issue and I'm hoping someone is able to come up with an answer.
Yes, I did go into Language Editor and change everything I can find to the term I want to use, however, when members accept the "friendship" invite, it still says, 'bleep and bleep are now friends'.
Pulling out my hair here. LOL! (what the "bleep".)
