You will see at the top of the activity is a submenu.  You may see ALL MEMBERS, MY FRIENDS, MY GROUPS, MY FAVORITES, and MY MENTIONS.  These are the activities broken down into each section.  For instance….. If you want to see just what your friends are doing, click on MY FRIENDS.  Only those who you have made friendships with will appear with their activity.

What are FAVORITES?

Consider the “favorite” button on activity as a “share” button on Facebook.  When you would like to add a post to your own profile, click on the FAVORITE button.  You will now see on your profile page this post when you go under “MY FAVORITES”.  Others will be able to see it, also!

 

What are MY MENTIONS?

Consider the “mentions” button on activity as a “Hello!  I think you’ll want to see this post!”  That mention will go to your friend’s activity and probably make them feel good that you thought of them!  To use the mention, type the @ figure before their username.  (for example:  @admin)  Now, admin will get a notification that you thought of them, and will be able to go under her “MY MENTIONS” and see the link to the post.  She can “VIEW” the post, and then add to her “favorites” if she wants to… (or private message you and tell you that you’re annoying her sending her so many mentions…  🙄 )  JUST KIDDING!!!!

 

FLAGGING:  Please use caution when clicking FLAG.  This is our way of moderating if there is a bad seed in the bunch trying to post inappropriate items, using our pet site as a business venture, or disturbing others with threatening comments.  In other words, it’s a good way to flag down a bad guy who is posting inappropriate stuff!  WE WANT TO KNOW so we can zap the little bugar outta here!
