because people speak English
MyEnglishClub is a community that shares and learns together.
We also try to have fun communicating. A big part of the success of this community is being able to make friends.
It is important to make friends.
PRIVACY SETTINGS can keep you from making friends. Privacy and community do not go well together in my opinion. Here are the best privacy settings to use:
Here are the two most important things to keep open:
Your profile page, your blog and photos need to be kept open to - Anyone
If we can't see you and read about you we are not going to become your friends. Without friends you will not improve as well as you could. Friends keep us motivated. Friends keep us happy. Friends help us.
Comments should be open to - Anyone
When someone adds a comment on my profile or my blog- Publish it immediately
Why on earth would you want to prevent comments from members? We are supposed to love comments. Comments are helpful and motivating. That is why we have friends. That is why this is called social media.
I feel like it is rude to moderate comments. When I leave a comment on your page and it doesn't show because it is being moderated, I can't check spelling or even delete it if I change my mind.
If I come back later and wonder if I thanked you for your comment I won't be able to see it. I may have tried to leave it from my phone, but now can't tell if it worked or not.
You should probably keep your moderation set like the example below. If you want to make friends you will be better off to do this. I am not going to bother too much with someone who wants to be unreachable or thinks they are better than the other members.
So don't expect to get a lot of friends if you hide from everyone or if you make us wait when we want to leave you a comment. I don't need to be friends with people who don't want to be a friendly part of the community.
