Using tSBN: Profile Privacy


Are you thinking about joining tSBN, or already have, but don’t want just any member to see details about you brand?

We understand that your brand’s information, including its target market’s gender and age may be information that you’re not comfortable sharing with everyone and anyone.

For this reason, we have made it possible for each member to modify their profile’s visibility, just like all popular social networking platforms.

By navigating to your profile’s settings and then the “Privacy Settings”, you can decide if your profile is to be visible to everyone, visible to friends only, and even choose to hide it from the member directory altogether.

It should be noted however, that although you can still use the member directory to search for other members, other members will not be able to find you if you hide your profile from the directory. This can lead to connections that could have boosted your brand substantially, never being made.

If you make your profile visible to friends only, it will still appear in searches made by other members in the member directory, but when a member clicks on your profile, all information will be hidden.

For example, lets assume your profile is visible to friends only, and you have selected Instagram as part of your online presence. If another member refines the member directory by searching for members who have selected Instagram for their online presence, your profile will appear in the results. When a member attempts to access your profile, your name, profile photo and cover photo will be present, but nothing else. There will also be a message to say that you have chosen to limit profile access to friends only, and a button below this message for members that want to add you as a friend.

In addition to the above privacy options, we’re also aware that your target market’s gender and age might be information you don’t want made public whatsoever. As such, these two fields have been made optional. Every other profile field is required.

Remember, if you need help, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
