I have a profile at the Diaspora pod called pod.geraspora.de

My real-life friend has a profile at the Diaspora pod called joindiaspora.com

QUESTION: How can I add this friend?

My id: https://pod.geraspora.de/u/nicolasraoul
My friend's id: https://joindiaspora.com/u/nameofmyfriend

Searching by name or id does not work.
We have both connected Diaspora to Facebook, but it says "not on Diaspora".

If you are on different servers, you need to use your full Diaspora IDs. Type something like nameofyourfriend@joindiaspora.com into the search field at the top, and it should find his account after a while. (Or he can do the same with your full ID.)

Another option (if you cannot find him for some reason): On the right side there is a link titled Share this link via email, blog, or favorite social network!. Just send him this link and he should be able to connect to you by visiting it.
