Got the solution.
The option is available under Manage > Categories > Options > Access Control > Search User > Privileges.
The chat and follow buttons were replaced by the small gear icon. My test users loved the chat button, and used it right away. I don't think they would notice that the chat button is a couple clicks away using the gear icon.
@Kamal-Patel Buttons were much better.
Yup...in fact let's have a chat about this now. Hold on, I can't find the chat button!
Bump! Removing the chat button in favor of the gear icon ... thoughts? I like/love the chat button and follow button being prominent.
I was experimenting with the profile page yesterday so that's why they were gone, I added them back although they are smaller than before now. I'm still not 100% convinced about their location though.
Where were you thinking for alternate locations? I'll probably just enlarge the buttons if they're smaller by default -- I want to push push push people to chat
Chatting is the strength of Node.js, no? Actually, I have no idea.
I'm not sure where to put them to be honest, I just don't like where they are right now
Node.js doesn't have out of the box chat support, we used socket.io for that.
