HOW TO CHANGE YOUR AVATAR

In order to change your avatar, go to your Profile Page. Hover your cursor near the Avatar box. A BLUE "Change Avatar" block will appear. Click that and it will open the window to upload a new pic.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR PHOTOS PRIVATE

Remember that you can make your own groups, put your own content in them, and also make them private or public. You can as well make additional profiles and make those private, public, or invisible. Private profiles and groups do not show up in search engine searches, but your public ones do.

Again you can create private profile and groups if you want to have naughty content and create public profiles if you want to be seen by friends on the net. Just invite friends for the naughty stuff :)

Nudity and pornography belong in a photo album and privacy set to viewable only by "friends" or "no one."

WHY: New laws in the US and UK are making it so Google, Bing, and other search engines are blocking porn and sites deemed as having pornographic content unless they aresearched for very specifically . We don't want to be blocked and not grow our community.

In order to make your photos private:

1. Log in to your profile

2. Go to top right where your username tab is located

3. Go to drop down menu, click "Privacy"

4. Under "view my photo albums," set it to "my friends"

If there is someone with whom you would like to share your photos, add him/her as a friend! Now only your friends will be able to view your photos.
