You may have noticed that we have improved our Member Gallery based on feedback from members. The most recent photos posted are now displayed first. You can also more easily browse photos on a page by page basis or search/filter photos by member. The username of the member who up-loaded the photo now appears under each thumbnail photo.
For logged-in members, a new module appears in the right-side menu that displays the photos in the gallery on a rotational basis. The idea of this module is to promote the personal-side of being wired and show new recipients that fellow members do live active and normal lives.
Your anxiety is normal. It takes some of us a little time to adjust to the new friend. As much as they love you, family and friends without a device just cannot understand the adjustment we go through. That is why this site is so valuable.
