You are right about that, Donna - this IS a big website! There are still plenty of things I don't really check very often. I'm just about computer literate enough to keep up with the 'regular' stuff, like the nutrition and fitness trackers and my SparkPage and email and that Sue-girl in the UK (lol). And that doesn't start to count things like the recipe sections or anything! Did you take a look at the 'Getting Started Guide,' the one under Quick Links (in the column to the right)?
We did have Meebo here a while ago, Spark was trying it out. It really slowed things down though, some loved it and some hated it..lol. I quite liked it as when I am on I got a few friends in USA who were up late and I could chat to them, so we miss that However like Kasey I reply as soon as I see my e mails or sparkmails...just allow for the time difference, we are in UK and if you send a message after 6pm chances are I am in bed..lol
I've never come across any 'live chat' features on SP - that's not to say there aren't any, just that I haven't found them. I don't 'do' live chat, except with a very few people (my kids, mostly) in the States. And I'm afraid I'm a real holdout when it comes to linking SP with FB: I have a Facebook account, but I keep the two entirely separate, as there's things here on SP that I'm not interested in people privy to my FB account knowing. (Does my ex-husband's current wife REALLY need to know what I weigh? I think NOT, lol...)
FWIW, tho, I'm usually pretty good as replying promptly to emails--? :-D
I'm new here and trying to figure this out to get maximum benefit and some good friendships. Am I to understand there is NO "real time chat"...just messages of sorts? OR am I missing clicking on something here? I sure could use some help explaining. THANKS to those who are willing to help!
