How come all of you have little people icons next to your names/ I'm the only one who doesn't.Is it because I don't know how to do the ABOUT ME page? I tried and can't figure it out. Not too smart on the computer. LOL
Thanks,
Wanda

The little people icon, everyone has. You have one. Yours has a plus because we haven't added each other as a friend yet. When you add someone as a friend, your plus sign next to your little people becomes a minus sign.

Did I explain that right? LOL

If you want someone to be added as a friend, just click on their little icon next to their name and you add them.

Hugs, Megan

I believe others have them so that you may click it and add a friend.

However, adding yourself as a friend might be redundant.

but you cannot see your own - if you click on the little person after someone else's name, they become your friend. the reason you don't see your own is because you already are your own friend.

does that make sense?

Thank you for explaining that!. That's cute, I'm already my own friend. What is the difference if you add friends? Aren't we all friends! :)
Thanks for clearing that up ladies.

I don't make people friends because it would be hard to include everyone and everyone is my friend. In the beginning I did until I realized it would be impossible to make everyone a friend.

loving, caring, sharing friends, and life is good! however, if you want to sent a private message to someone, i think you need to be their friend!

No. You can send a private message by typing in their user ID. All I'd have to do to send you a PM is type heidijez. The hard part is making sure you type it right.

I've got something wrong with my PM screen as the list of friends doesn't show everybody anyway. I'd have to type their name in anyways!
