Facebook Picture Album comments; Industry
I hate to delete anything off THOW page, but when you comment on the ‘Picture Album’ rather than on the.’Picture in the Album, no one (including myself’) knows which picture you refer to?
”So what’s the problem with just leaving them there anyway?” I hear you cry!
Well, because everyone follows the last comment? (Understandable) and then there are hundreds! And I don’t get to see your replies as I browse the pictures? So, any queries posted there, I cant reply to, and that makes me feel bad! ………………..But I’m deleting now!
Don’t think me cruel and heartless, I’m doing this for your own good …. And I’m also ensuring your replies or questions are still recorded …. HERE …IN THE INDUSTRY ALBUM REPLIES.
