Within the relative anonymity of GaG, why have a private profile?

You can go on/off anon as you please, and your profile pic can be a dinosaur if you choose.
So, why make your profile private?

  • Some people do it to cut down on the amount of pervy messages or because they've had problems with harassment and trolls do it to be inconvenient.

  • The only reason I had a private profile for a little while was because my sister made a GAG account and she knew who I am. I didn't like having a private profile, so I decided to just block her, so my profile shows as private only for her.
    That was my reason.
    But I believe many people make their profile private so creeps can't send them messages, and so they can control who's following them.

  • I guess bc some people don't want other strange users messaging them all willy-nilly.

  • Restricts who can message you. Especially if you use your picture, you can get a lot of creeps...

    • Very valid point, sir.

    • You're right I once had a profile pic of a hand giving the finger and I got a creepy message asking what would i do with that finger lol creeps message you with any pic or without one

  • A lot of people don't want someone to use their pic to cat fish or they just don't wanna get perverted messages.
