How do I add buddies in Pidgin?

Chinmay S December 7, 2013

I installed Pidgin last night but i don’t know how to use it. How do i add buddy? When i select “Add Buddy” from the Buddies menu it shows Account and username. In account dropdown menu it shows my email but what do i enter in “Buddy’s username”? How do i know buddy’s username and i also want to know my own username? Where can i find my own username? Pidgin is so hard to use. Very complicated software.

    "Add buddies" under the buddies menu on the main window should sort you out.
