Default Don't read conversations other people have on profiles

Hi there!

*Disclaimer: This thread is to just not read others conversations on profiles (not in threads), not posting private information on profiles.

I've noticed this recently, and I'm not naming any names. It could just be a "game", but it could be embarrassing or a little annoying if you do this: look at others conversations with other people. It's sort of like someone's reading your IM's or your e-mails behind your back. Not a good feeling, although I understand when people aren't trying to hurt you most of the time. It's also easy to see other people's posts on a friend's profile if you're posting back. However, you can still access their conversations.


Also, Dixiecup pointed out that you can make your profile private or talk through PM (great suggestion!). I'm not one that uses PMing for conversations a lot, but I understand a lot of you do. Also, I think your friends can also look at your conversations, even if it's private (please let me know if that's wrong.)

If you do have something private to say to someone, do it in PM, not in profile messages. Anyone can have access to it then.

I really don't know if others do this, but it's just a heads up to respect others' privacy. By this, I mean just not reading through their conversations with others. I'm the kind of person who likes to talk to a lot of people, but I don't like other people reading our conversations. I just don't feel comfortable with that. However, many people are fine with reading their conversations with others, and I understand that. Unless someone says it's okay, in my opinion, just don't do it. You don't know whether the person you're doing it to is fine with it or not, but anyways it's respect

As always, please post your ideas/opinions/criticism. Thanks!

Default Re: Try to give others privacy on profiles

You DO know that you can make your profile so that it is private, right?
So that only your contacts and your friends can see it?
The whole idea is that it is a PUBLIC profile, it even says so when you click on the name...'View Public Profile.' Just don't put anything on that profile that you don't want others to see.
It is the same thing as if you send a postcard. If you don't want other people reading your mail, then don't send a [postcard, put it in a secure envelope.
In this case...a Private message.

Thank you Dogluver620---
I am even embarrased to read my own p,m, when I notify someone.
I don't want to invade the privacy of another poster-- so I scan down very slowly to only expose my own to check it.
Reps to you -- great thread

Yes, I know, but if you have a big contacts list, then anyone on your friends list can see it too. But people don't always use PM's, and anyone can view their conversations, if you see what I mean.

Sometimes I'm like that too. Of course, it's our nature to try to find something out out of curiosity (I've been guilty of it before too) but I try not to do it, you know?

As always my friend Dixie enlightens us that we are on the internet and everyone is looking.
This is why Justin and Wendy caution us on releasing to much information about ourselves.
Be select.

Default Re: Try to give others privacy on profiles

Sometimes you can't help but see what is already there. I have gone and told someone that I noticed they were looking for something in particular from another person whom I am friends with. If i have the answer and my friend isn't online, I have given that answer.
I have sent over links and such and found pics and references for people...just because I 'happened' to see their plea for help on another profile. I am not eavesdropping or being nosy...Hopefully no one views it that way. I mean they can just as easy tell me to MYOB, If YKWIM

Default Re: Try to give others privacy on profiles

I agree that private information should stay private. If I can give someone a tip, then I will, and the majority of people will be grateful. If it's a public profile, then the public can see it, and that's basically it xD
