You can also tag someone with a ‘like’ label to star them. If a user also ‘like’s’ you back, Miliao will match you two together to spark an introduction and conversation. If you don’t want to be bothered or harassed, you can opt to ‘hide’ yourself from others. Of course, being an instant messaging app, you can chat.
