Not bothered at all, wouldn't say something on here that I wouldn't say in person. I showed a mate of mine this site too, he may have seen me by now if he carried on using it. Besides, if there's something you wanted to say and really didn't want anyone to know it was you, surely you'd just go anonymous to save the risk!
My Sophomore year, I took a picture with my friends behind these school windows. Some guy message me and say do you go to (Bleep) High school? I was like "how did you know that?" I got to that same high school and I know those office windows. We added each other in Facebook but we never planned on meeting, I just thought it would be awkward. We promised to keep it a secret. I ended up coming out of a room and he passed by me and gave me a little wave. I would kind of care if someone knew me in person that was on here but not really :P It would be a low chance.
Now adays everyone posts their pics ig fb tweeter YouTube whatever. there's a lkt of creeps out there n people who are unhappy with theirs n wanna mess up someone elses. You just gotta be careful you dont post pics u dont want seen.
wheni joined GaG I started out with a avatar as my picture and I once was told I never should show my picture of myself on the Internet as my profile picture I dasided I got tired of hiding and I wanted to show my face as my profile picture so that people know who there talking to because if I had a avatar as my picture then people would think there talking to a kid and I didn't want anyone to think that so that's why I dasided to show my face
I highly doubt anyone from GAG will see me. This website isn't popular in my country so very few people use it. Plus the few who do and who I've talked to from my country all live in different cities and regions from me so they makes the chances of being recognized even smaller
Like when using any online forum, site or service, be smart and don't give away personal details about yourself - and if you are really worried about being recognized then use an avatar for your profile. Everyone on GaG should take the steps they need to feel most comfortable and safe while asking and interacting. Happy posting!
Why do you go anonymous when... unless you put your own pic as the profile pic... you already anonymous? I hate they allow that option. Was there any reason to go anonymous for this question? it isn't controversial... what negative affect would have happened from posting as yourself? people that go anonymous esp when posting this kind of generic question, don't need to be on the site. Some people don't care if people know who they are. If you have to be afraid of posting why be on the site at all?
