Peer-to-peer connections don't just disappear when your Yellowdig Community ends. Our Direct Message feature allows you to continue conversations and maintain friendships for as long as you have a Yellowdig account, even if you or your peers are no longer members of active Yellowdig Communities. Messaging in Yellowdig resembles "DM'ing" in traditional social media applications.
Starting a one-on-one conversation from your Community Feed
To send a message to anyone in your Community, hover over their avatar icon in the Community Feed and select the Messages button. Scroll to the bottom to start typing your message. When you're done typing, hit the Enter key to send your message.
Starting a group thread from the Messages page
To initiate a group thread, click on your avatar icon, select Messages, and click the +NEW CONVERSATION button. Add group members by selecting them from the drop-down menu. You can also filter by name in the "Search your contacts" field. When you're ready to start the thread, click the +CREATE THREAD button.
Scroll to the bottom to start typing your message. When you're done typing, hit the Enter key to send your message.
