I just started playing Diablo III and have noticed that, so far, I've only been able to add friends and accept friend requests from in-game. This is a bit frustrating, as I usually chat to my mates during lunchtime - a perfect time to manage my friends list online.

Is there a way to do this? I've looked through the site and the Diablo III community site and, if the option is there somewhere, it's certainly not obvious!

Does anyone know if this is a feature that is planned?

It is indeed only working if you are logged in. However you can go to the link, log in and you will be redirected back to the working page. – ique May 18 '12 at 11:27
