Well hi there , I'm new , not new to the area tho, just this site . I've been in the myrtle beach area for 3 years now but still go on the mommy site in North Carolina , used to live there . I met my BFF on that site and alot of others too but figured now that I have extra time bc I have no job I'd see if I could meet people around here .

They alwways talk about new stores or restaurants opening and obviously that doesn't interest me anymore

Hi,

This info can always be found in the CafeMom FAQs:

Here's how to edit your child's information:

1. Click on "My Other Stuff" at the top of the page in gray.
2. Click "About Me and My Family " under Account Settings.
3. Click the "About Me and My Family" tab in blue.
4. Scroll down to "My Kids Details".
5. Click the icon beneath the "Edit / Delete Kids" column next to the child whose information you would like to edit.
6. A pop-up window will appear and you'll be able to make your changes.
7. Click the "Save" button at the bottom of the window when you're finished.

Note: Be sure you do not have any pop-up blockers for www.cafemom.com

Let us know if you have any other questions. We're always happy to help!

This is probably a dumb question but what is the point in "friending" someone on here. You can see everyone's posts even if you are not friends with them, right? You can message anyone, even if you are not friends with them, right? So what's the benefit of friending people?

Hi!

Some members have their profile page info set to friends only which means some of their info can only be seen by their friends.  That info can include, Journal posts set to friends only, photos set to friends only, their personal statement, info about their kids, their group list and friends list,... and some of the other info that can be added to your profile page using the various widgets that we offer.  If a member's profile page is set to friends only, you won't be able to leave them a chatterbox message unless your friends with them.

You can also use the My Friends link at the top right of every group to help find your friends' latest posts.  In addition, you can send PMs to multiple members at the same time but you'll only be able to choose members who are on your frioends list to PM like that.  Same with the check it out link at the very bottom of every post - you can only PM posts using that feature to members on your friends list.

That's all I can think of right now... but there are probably more reasons... like just being able to remember who you really connect with on the site so you can stay in touch. 

I hope you're enjoying the site so far!

Robin
