Yes, it does what it says on the tin, but it is horribly inefficient and introduces numerous issues to your existing buddyboss ecosystem. It's a shame the plugin has been abandoned, as there doesn't seem to be many other competitors

@friends Still don't work on the main feed. I want everyone who I am friends with to get a email notification.

This plugin makes it easy to broadcast an @ mention to an exact subset of members.
