"Private Message" Alert
On my latest hub, I got a "private message" alert. What does that mean? Should I be careful? Is it a virus that might damage my computer if I open it?

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.

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?
