What do you all think of this idea. Have an option to leave a private message to each other on our profile page. Where we have the option to accept or reject the message and also to help cut down on our private email account(s). So what do you think?
Does the hubstaff look at the suggests people post in here? Or are you suppose to post them or email them somewhere else?
like on facebook and stuff? an email within hubpages? GOOD IDEA!!
I know you can turn email off, but I wouldnt mind messages from some people, but I dont want every tom dick and harry emailing me...and I dont feel like setting up a whole new email just for hubpages....
The current e-mail system works well. The system on Facebook creates 'threads' for conversations which is a nice idea, but I'm not sure how well it would fit in with Hub Pages, it's more of a socializing feature.
oh. i must have been thinking of something else, where it says lsend a private message, and you click in it and it says inbox...maybe myspace..I thought facebook had it as well, but its been a long time since I checked in there.
The current system works well IF you have your email checked to receive messages
Tried to send Eaglekiwi a note, and can't
Yeah Facebook has that, but when you click on a message, it is 'threaded', so you can reply between each other and the communication stays on the same page, so it actually looks a lot like this page now, rather than traditional e-mail. So I suppose if Hub Pages were going to implement an integrated messaging system, that would be a possibility.
However Facebook also sends out an e-mail every time I get a message, so it seems to duplicate the entire process. You get a message at Facebook, and it gets sent to you by e-mail too. They should just choose one and stick with it.
If your a regular on hubpages for one, why would they need to send you an email notification that you got a private message. Could they not by pass this? And maybe if you don't check your private messages after so long maybe delete them so system does not overload. Can a system overload?
Jane, if someone unticked that box it probably means they don't want to be contacted. The problem is that if Hub Pages enable private messaging people will abuse and spam the system as easily or even more easily than if you've got e-mail enabled.
That's my concern. I'll get e.mails via HubPages, but some of them just are clearly not other members getting in touch. Even the ones that seem legitimate are ones I think twice about replying to, because that means they actually get your e.mail address.
I agree. HubPages is NOT a social networking site, let's not turn it into one.
Good point. Its the same reason why lots of people have "enable others to contact me" UNchecked in their account. Its too bad people have to be so low, nasty, and wastefull of other's time.
Contact button works well for that.
No more means for spam.

I think being able to send private messages to other users would be a great feature. I have followers who joined HubPages just to follow my content, and I would like to be able to contact them directly, but since they don't have hubs posted this is difficult.

Loving Hub Pages and so far loving most of the Hubbers I've come across. Sometimes, I'd like to contact a Hubber in private to comment on a hub without leaving an actual comment (ie. about spelling errors, suggestions, etc.) or ask a question or whatever, but I'm not comfortable...

is it possible to send a private message like on fb?

I have a friend I've been writing to since 1990. It started out as a snail mail friendship, and gradually moved to e-mail. I've never met my friend, but we've shared a lot over nineteen years. I feel privileged to still have a connection that started out with the Letter Exchange...

I'm sort of an editor by instinct, and while I never catch everything, and I certainly don't catch everything in my own writing, I often noticed the overlooked typo or common grammar error when reading other people's work.How do most of you feel about receiving corrections? Obviously I wouldn't...

I'm fairy new to Hub Pages, but one of the things I really enjoy is reading through the Hub Hopper - you never know what topic is going to pop out at you OR how good or bad the next article will be, ha! But some of the really good ones could be even better with some good writer-to-writer feedback....
