Sending a message
You can send a direct message to users who follow you and who you are following back. You can see the list of those users at the bottom of your profile, under 'buddies' .

There are two ways you can send a message to another user.

1. From the profile

You can send a direct message to another user right from the profile of that particular user. You will see a 'Send Message' button at the bottom if this user is on your buddies list (figure 1).
