Why Won't You Let Me See Who You Are?
I love ActiveRain! Where else can you write til your heart's content... learn how to Tweet, Facebook, get Plussed on Google+, and meet -real or virtually- some great friends!
If you are new to Active Rain..otherwise known as a Newbie...it has been suggested that one of the best ways to get started is to read and comment on posts. And this is true. By commenting on posts, others will get to know you.. not only the author of the post but other commenters as well.
But... why not make it easier on us in to see who you are? When you make a comment on a post, the author as well as other commenters will look to see who you are.
Take a look:
Sharon Tara provides her name, what she does (New Hampshire Home Stager, and the name of her company Sharon Tara Transformations.
I know Sharon, but if I did not, I would at the very least know her name, what she does and where she is from.
But I've run across some commenters who won't let me see who they are... unless I click on their link, and go over to their Profile Page to learn their name. Their signature looks something like this:
"ABC Realty Team, Muleshoe Texas."
I really don't want to begin my response to them with "Thank you ABC Realty, for commenting"
I don't know... maybe I'm naive... maybe the Commenter wants me to have to go to their Profile page to find out who they are.
But if you DO want us to see who you are... there's a very simple way to fix it.
Go to your Home Page>then in the left column click My Profile(Edit). You'll see, as above, First Name: and Last Name:... You can choose to enter only your name, or as I have done, where I am, what I do and my phone number.
Again..it's your choice but how about making it a little easier for us!
And... don't forget... comments can be picked up by Google too!
