Your small profile head vs the reg size head.

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Sharon Lee's Virtual Assistance

Hello everyone-A while back I noticed in the comment sections of many of my followers blogs all of a sudden a lot of the profile pics were smaller than some of the others when they commented. I didn't know why but didn't think anything about it until one day Ron and Alexandra Seigel made a comment on somebody's blog about it and mentioned that with that smaller head it didn't let you know if you tagged someone or if you had even commented back to that person. 

I found out that is very true from noticing on comments I have made and the author comments back with the smaller head profile pic. The only way you know if they replied to your comment is if they also liked your comment.  Now I also had read that small profile pic comes from the dropdown menu. Not sure where that is but must be I am in the minority there as I have seen lots of the smaller profile heads.

Now today I also found out that if you make a comment on somebody's blog using the small head method it won't let you know that someone even commented on your post. I found that out when Gary Woltal and Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD both commented the drop down menu method. Neither showed up on my home page that they made a comment. The only reason I knew they both commented is @Belinda had made a comment but hers was the other way.  I took the liberty of using Gary Woltal's profile pics because I knew he wouldn't mind,

Now I don't know if I explained it so you understood me but thought I would share with you what I learned from Ron and Alexandra's comment about the comments not showing up even when you tag someone with the smaller profile pic. I always say we learn something new from our favorite luxury agents in Carpinteria CA and this was no exception. I thought it was worth bringing attention to it in a blog in the event you didn't know.

Hello again-Thanks to Hannah Williams I think I can better clarify what I am talking about. If you use the comment option done by hovering over the comment number (in the right corner)it will not show up on the homepage to let the person know you replied to them even if you tag them. Don't know why it won't but it won't.

When I first started reading this I thought I was going to have to upload yet another size picture.  I see where the difference is happening.

Beth Atalay -It was. It is when you comment by using the comment option where you hover over the comment number. They are working on resolving it. The profile pic is smaller than the reg way.

I think this is one of the issues AR is working on. It's been that way since they started the new return way of answering a comment. That's why I still do the old fashioned way and tag there.

R&A let me know that, too, so from now on, I'm staying with the general comments here. That is IF I want that person to know that I am commenting on their comment!

That is the only way I  knew how to do it until this post Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Realtor (503)755-2905 so I will stay with what works although they are supposed to be working on fixing it so it works the other way too.

Thanks for the heads up. I've been using the new way and never knew members did not see my comments...bummer. I will go back to the old way of commenting.

Oh my....This could be important.  I think I need to come back and read this again after I've had more coffee.    I'm still trying to figure out why a have the baby calf picture showing up sideways when I look at it on my iPhone type devices.  Lol. 

 

By the way, thank you for the super nice comment on my Old Barn Post.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Sondra Meyer: -I think the most important part is doing it the other way doesn't let the person know you replied to their comment. Maybe it is because the phone is smaller because it was the right way when I made the comment. You are most welcome. I just said what I believe is the truth.

I hope to be home tomorrow, and then will spend Monday getting caught up. This state convention stuff had me running for three days. It's time to slow things down. I stopped several hours from home to stay with Mike. He's working temporarily in Leadville.

Debbie Laity -I appreciate that and my sleep schedule is off but I have been getting more sleep which is good but I am still dog tired.  Make sure you don't get burned out.  House will go on the market probably in a couple of weeks so busy here too.  Have a great day,
