    Based on my latest thread. Now i know a little bit about the habbit or culture of peoples in this site. For example, i know that peoples here not using "buddy" or something like that when they're talked each other. Or about they're never say "i want to make a friend", "i just want to have a friend".

    But, i don't understand why it's difficult for asking a social media like Twitter, BBM, Whatsapp, Skype or something like that. So, how if we want to share a photo, phone or video calling, and quick respons chat with some peoples here? Is it all about privacy or...??

    I just want to be closer with some peoples here, but i don't know how to do

    It's because people aren't very trusting. That being said it's never stopped me:smug:

    What do you need to say/send to strangers on the internet, that you cannot send via private message OP? Why do you need personal private contact numbers?

    I think that strangers on the internet maybe can become my friend, and friend have many things to talk, usually they're sending photos each other or sometimes video calling. I think private message can't do those stuff, maybe can send a message or photo, but its low respons, isn't it?

    No, it doesnt have to private contact number, for me something like Twitter is enough.

    Okay, I understand you clearer now. Develop the online friendships first, then exchange Twitter, Facebook, etc, later. Most people won't be comfortable to provide direct messaging details before the friendship.
