Messages and Chat

The messages and chat feature allows you to have private conversations with other members.

To start a chat, there are several ways as show below.

  • Go to your Friends list and click on the messages icon (envelope) next to your friend’s name; or
  • Use the drop down menu on the far right side of the other member’s status update

 

If the other member is your friend, and is online, the chat box will appear on your screen. You can type your message, add photos and GIFs.

 

If the other member is not your friend, or is offline, a message box will appear. You can type your message, add photos and GIFs. They will be notified that they have a message.
