Default The Difference Between PMing and Posting On Profiles

I thought this could be brought to attention, and i'm not saying anyone does this, well i don't know but....

Pming-
Private
Safer

Profile Posts-
Non-private
Not as safe as PMing

Some people PM places they're going to their friends in real life. That's okay! (= But if you post something by accident on a thread like your birthday, and that's your password, they can hack into your account and look at your PMs. Including stuff like adresses, phone numbers, places... you name it, if you PMed it, they got it.

Some people don't realize that PROFILES aren't private! I can't stress that if someone can hack into your account, they sure can go and see your profile or a friends. This could get serious if you post an address publicly or in anyform. Just call your friends to give them adresses. And hey, if you don't have their number cuz they're on WI you shouldn't give it to them whether you want to, or if they want you to. If THEY want you to then report them immediatly. (=

This wasn't to scare you or to be in harsh tone, just trying to remind you. (=

Great point.
Because this is an online forum & there is always a chance someone could get into your acct.
It's probably best not to share that kind of information through PMs anyways... just wait until you see the person in person again.. or email them. A little more secure.


also would like to say -
if your PW is your birthday, phone # or other piece of information like that... (mom's bday etc ) probably would be wise to change it... those are generally the first thing people will guess if they are looking to get into your account.

I am sorry I don't post very often anymore but as you can tell I am on insider frequently and I love this site. I am just not as computor savy as most and I feel pretty much like an outsider. I try to enter the contests but I think Im not really entered. I try to add important things I have found on ww but it always seems like old news. I have asked for help but I never see any one taking the time to answer me. I just get skipped over. Please don't get me wrong, I know that a lot of the issues are on my end and this site is the best. I now have 3 ww sites and nearly 100 kinz. I can't seem to figure out how to get a screen picture to work and transfer to WI. I am using an HP Pavillion Entertainment Pc with vista, so if anyone has any sugestion please help. Do I need to have Officeor another special program? Your help is greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Susanbeth.
