How do people message me even though my profile is private?

I keep getting messages from people I don't know while I've got my profile set to invite only. How is this happening. And yes I'm semi new to GaG.

  • You can still receive messages even if you're private.

    To receive messages only from people you follow go in settings and select the option from the menu.

  • A private profile just means people can't see your profile details. There's another option in your settings for making it that people can only message you if you follow them.

  • There is an extra box in settings "TO RECEIVE PMs FROM ONLY PEOPLE YOU FOLLOW" - Going private only hides your info.
