To change your personal information such as geographic location, age or gender please follow these steps:
Your changes will now appear on your Personal Page!
Remember if you update your email address you will have to verify it before you can send notes to other members!
You cannot change your username once you have opened an account. This is our unique way of identifying you so the only way to get a different username is to open a new account.
Your Page Log keeps track of who visited your Personal Page in the last 14 days. Entries are recorded chronologically showing the most recent visitors first. You can view your page log by clicking on the Page Log link on the left side of the home page.
It's easy. When you come across a Personal Page that looks inviting you can click on the “Add to Friends” list. The person you are inviting as your Friend must accept the invitation before he or she appears on your Friends list.
Having members on your Friends List makes it easier to communicate with them. Once they are on your Friends list they will see every bulletin you post and their names will be automatically added to your address book in notes.
The names of your Friends also appear on your Personal Page so others can see how many Friends you have.
What are you waiting for? Start inviting some Friends!
Currently you can not change your year of birth.
As part of our member safety program we added minimum and maximum ages to chat rooms. As a result, some members started altering their age to access certain rooms. As an added security measure we blocked your ability to change your birth year. We are sorry for any convenience this may cause you.
If you have favorite links they will be listed here and you can delete them. If you want to add them you can add from this section as well.
To add videos, simply go to your personal page and click on the Videos tab. You can upload as many videos as you want in this section. Videos must be five minutes or less. Don't worry if your video is longer than five minutes — our handy editing tool will allow you to easily shorten your video.
Videos that you upload in the Video tab section of you Personal Page are not automatically added to your Personal Page. You must click on the “Arrange Your Page” link and add the video widget. Once the video widget is added you can decide which of your videos to display on your personal page.
You can now add a Blog to your personal page! This is your opportunity to share your thoughts with us! You can tell us what you are thinking about the news, your favorite movies, your favorite food, who you are going to vote for in the next presidential election or even what you think about Paris Hilton! You can allow all members to read and comment on your blog or you can keep your thoughts private or viewable by just your friends. The choice is yours!
You now have the ability to share your thoughts about so many things! Don't hold back! Go ahead. Start your blog now!
Steps for adding a photo to your Personal Page:
Once your photo is uploaded into our system you can use it any of your profiles.
Note: All social main photos must be approved so other members will not be able to see it right away. It can take up to 24 hours for approval.
Songs must be in mp3 format and each song must be less than 10mb in size. As a general rule you can assume that 1mb is equal to one minute of a song.
Your Guestbook is attached to your Personal Page. When you create your Personal Page for the first time, the Guestbook is automatically created. You can add a heading and description, and enable/disable your Guestbook by going to your Personal Page and clicking on Edit Guestbook link.

You can hide your page views so that other people don't know you visited their page by doing the following:

Don't want others to see when you last logged in? No problem. Now you can hide this information. Click the Edit button in your personal information widget, uncheck the “hide last login” box and save you changes.
Your dating profile will be deleted.
Do you have a friend who is so busy on the site that their activity is always appearing on your Friend Center? If this annoys you we have a solution! Now you can click on the My Friends link and remove this person from your Friend Center. If you do this you will no longer see any of their activity. This person will remain on your Friends list and you will still have all the privileges that being friends offers such as viewing bulletin posts and Friends Only pictures.

Some IFILM users find that nothing happens when they click on the green "Watch Now!" links. The IFILM Player does not launch, and therefore, the video clip you've selected is unable to play.
This is typically caused by Pop-Up Blocker software installed on your computer. Pop-up Blockers are sometimes unable to recognize that the IFILM Player is user requested, so they prevent it from opening. Pop-up blockers are included in software from AOL, MSN, Internet Explorer, Netscape, Norton Utilities, Alexa and many more. If you experience this problem playing video clips, try disabling your pop-up blocker. You should be able to view the videos.
