What's A Person To Do???

Thursday, September 01, 2011

Not the first time this has happened!!! You see where someone puts in their huddle "I Need Support". So you take the time to go to their Spark Page to find it is set to "Private".
How can you support this person???
Tell me, what's a person to do???

    Yea.. I've noticed the same thing sometimes. I wish SP would get good quality privacy settings. They keep getting better features in every other part of their site... and privacy.... NADA!.... it's either blocking out the whole world, including SP; or let in the whole world, just 'cause you want to share with SP members. What's with that?

    I don't get that either. Maybe send them a sparkmail.

    I don't understand that either. It's also hard to give them support when your not sure what they have going on. You can send them private mail though.

    I usually just send them a spark mail, say I saw the note on the huddle, and state I would have sent a goodie, but their page is set too private. That way, if they want their page private no worries, but if they don't know it is set they do now. This is of course when I am not pressed for time!

    That confuses me too. I'm thinking they don't know they have it set up that way.

    understand that.. I just look at the screen and say Really? and then go back to the friend feed and hugs someone that is not set to private LOL HUGS!!!

    I don't understand the private setting on this site. Isn't this site to support each other and be able to read blogs to help yourself and others.

    I will not be politically correct here and say that I don't believe private settings should be allowed here. This is not facebook. I feel when someone has a private setting, they can spy on me especially when they leave a comment on my page and I can't see anything about them. I guess I just like open people and those brave enough to put it all out there.

    emoticon Maybe they're new and don't even know? Maybe you could tell them this in a SparkMail. emoticon

    I certainly understand your frustration.Sometimes I will send an email, but it would be so much better if I could just pop onto their page & leave some support.
