Default friends

Is it safe to be friends with anyone and everyone on WI? I'm relatively new and would like friends, but how do I know if someone is safe? I don't want to be mistrusting, I'm just not sure. I would like to be friends with everyone who asks me to be a friend.

Thanks,

chicken little

Well, you can't really tell if they are trustable, but I have a bunch of friends that I caan talk to, and they're really nice. Don't think everyone here is a criminal!

Being friends on WI is a personal choice. Some members won't be friends with anyone while others are friends with everyone. There is nothing wrong in accepting a friendship request here on WI. The important thing to remember is not to give out personal information. If someone asks you anything personal, please forward the pm to a staff member (any red or blue name) and staff will take care of it.

I would only do what makes you feel best. No one here should ask you for any personal information or anything, and if someone does you should report it.

my advice would be if you are feeling uneasy about it, maybe just observe for a while and see how things go

once you see how people are and that they are here for the webbies and not out to get you, i think it will help you feel more comfortable.

just be sure you do what makes you feel comfortable. But I will tell you, there are some REALLY great people on here, and I think not being friends with some of them, you would really be missing out!

good luck in your decision!

Well, I am always open to new friends on WI. Some people I know in real life, so I am not afraid to chat with them. I don't see what's wrong about having a lot of friends on WI, but I would be careful about the people you talk to. Here are some don'ts when chatting with people on WI:

- Don't EVER give out personal information on WI.
- Don't say mean things to other members. You could get banned, but you could also hurt that person's feelings.
- Don't be friends with someone if you don't trust that person, I know that it is hard to trust a person on the internet, but it's easier to know who's good and who's bad.

There are many other things to remember, but you can always break a friendship you have made with someone on WI.

I am friends with everyone that wants to be my friend. I just talk about everyday things, but never any personal info is given. It is up to you.

exactly right! If you think you can trust them, go head. Just don;t give out any personal information!

Thanks to everyone that replied. I will watch a bit longer and then decide. I really would like to have someone to chat with. Even though I really don't know how to do it yet.

I love WI and have learned so much and enjoy getting replies to my questions. Thanks again.
