Thanks for posting your question with us.

You friend just has to set their diary up to view.

To allow others to view your diary, you must adjust your Diary Sharing settings.

On the Web​
Click “My Home” then “Settings” then “Diary settings”.

In the Android, iPad and iPhone apps
In the Menu (or “More” page) tap “Settings” then “Sharing & Privacy” then “Diary Sharing.”

Select your preference from “Public,” “Friends Only”, or “Locked with a key” and save your changes.

At the end of the day, when you have finished logging your diary, select “Complete This Entry.” This will create a convenient “View Diary” link on your friends’ news feed, if this option has not been changed in your News Feed Privacy settings.

​Friends can also visit your profile page at any time and select “View Diary.” To visit a friend’s profile:

On the Web​
Click “My Home” then “Friends” then click on a friend in the list. Or, enter a profile’s URL directly in your browser’s address bar:<INSERT_USERNAME_HERE>

In the iPhone, iPad and Android apps
Tap the “Friends” page, and select your friend from the list.

Hope this helps to clarify,
