    I wanted to send someone a pm yesterday but could not find out how. All I could find is something called a conversation but i don't know if that is the same thing as a PM. Everything has changed so much that I don't know what's what.

    You can have a private "conversation" with someone by:

    1) Click on that person's name
    2) In that pop-up box you can click "Start conversation"

    Or

    1) Put your mouse of inbox, but don't click so a drop down menu will come down
    2) Click Start a conversation
    3) Enter the name(s) of the person you want to PM in the "Participants" field

    **but I'm not sure if you need to follow that person or not to send them "conversation"**

    You have to follow someone...and that person will be online to you in the blue box at the bottom and you can IM them, but you and/or that person has to follow you.

    Thanx,

    Are PMs and Conversation the same thing? I started a conversation yesterday but I don't know how it works now that you say I might have to be following the person.

    Yes they are the same thing.

    IMs (Instant messages) are different. That's the blue bar and the bottom with the "Who's Online" .

    I'll give you an example

    Sister Ms.Drea sent me a "conversation"....However, I could not reply to her. I had to follow her in order to respond.

    Thanx again.

    Maybe one of the moderators can copy and paste what you wrote into the Help page.
