I am feeling a bit less then bright. I keep getting messages that someone has sent me a gift. When I go to my profile, friends or inbox pages I cannot find them. I also cannot find a place to return gifts. My first few days on this site I saw those but was busy learning my way around. Am I missing something?
Thanks for any help and yes I have sent a message to the admins.

LOL I just know that it means someone wants to brighten my day…just smile and know someone cares about you

I am right there with you Meg. I keep worring that all my friends will just think I am very rude!! I really do feel old due to new technology. I still can barely text, but I don't exactly see the point . So to all who have sent me gifts and well wishes and are here reading this…thank you, I am still trying to navigate my way around.

Hi! I've already been to admin. They have a small development Dept and it may be on their list of things to fix. In the mean time you just need to know that a present us just the wrapped box that you can chose. If they dont specify ie I sending you a box of sunshine or hugs or whatever, all you would see would be the box. Other than that your email will read
Liz is sending you flowers or a High Five or Hug or whatever.

To send them a gift you just go to their Profile. On the top right, there is a place underneath where you write the note there is a white box wrapped with a red ribbon. Whether or not you send a message, you can just click on send a present. Chose any present you want and move over to the right and click on the word Share. You should see the word change slightly so you know the computer is responding. Then a note will appear on their screen saying you sent (whatever it is that you sent)

Thank God I'm not the only one! My kids call it old people and modern technology. Of course there would be no actual words in their message.

If you are talking texting there is no sense at all in that. I was in a forum site chat room helping people. Some tried to use text with me. I would not help until they used words and whole sentences. Nope not old I am only 60 but will be old in 20 years or so.

hi… i think the problem is we cant see our own profile as we should… it would have been easier to keep track of everything if we do!

Howdy mary.
I have given up trying to find the messages and the gifts on my wall as there is so much activity there as to quickly "bury" the gift and/or the note. I make a mental note as to who posted on my wall and will even copy the message should I feel the need to respond. If they are on my list of friends I will email them my reply. If they're not on my list I will invite them to be my friend and post my reply on their wall. That way I don't get lost in pages and pages of past events, and I contact them quicker.

I pray this is helpful!

wow you go through alot. When you look up at right top of page you will see My profile then friends then inbox, press on friends look up the friend you want to send message to and click on their name you will then be on their profile and you will see a message box there for you to write message and send gift to as well.

I have over 3000+ friends (and growing) so it does get more complicated to find a friend like that. I also didn't say that it was the BEST way to do it, just sharing what I do.

If they are one of my friends I prefer to email them since I don't like to make them chase the wall posting if they don't see it right away.

I hear you Jayabee. I have four pages of friends and yesterday sent them all including you messages. Like to stay in contact with them and let them know I am still here.

Ok I finally figured out how to send gifts to friends. All I needed to do was click on their profiles. Being blonde can be tough at times.
