It should be noted that these contacts only remain in the folder for 30 days from the date the message appeared. If you want to keep these messages, just move them to another folder.

    We give members the opportunity to decide who they want to contact them via message. For example, they may only want to receive messages from users who have photographs or members of a set age or who are from a certain location. Therefore, a notification that says you can’t message a particular member means you don’t meet their messaging conditions.

  15. How Do I Deal With Yoole Members Who Make Me Nervous?

    You can elect not to talk to them and put them in the ‘Blocked’ folder which also means that they cannot talk to you. If they are bothering you, click ‘Report abuse’ and Yoole will deal with the problem.

    Members who you have blocked can actually send you messages, you just won’t receive the notifications nor will they be able to leave you comments. It will be like they don’t exist!

Choose one and also leave as much information that is relevant to the problem as possible as this makes it easier for us to solve it.

  18. The Yoole Messenger Window Will Not Open For Me, What Now?

    Whenever you use the Yoole Messenger Window, an extra window should appear in your browser.

After removing pop-up restrictions, try and open the Yoole Messenger Window again.

6. Tagging

  1. What Is Tagging?

    Yoole enables you to tag whomever you wish in your photos quickly and easily. If you have photos in your albums and there are people you know in them, you can tag them if you wish. It’s an easy way to distinguish people in group photos. Also, when you tag Yoole friends in photos, you also create a link to their profile. Even people who have not yet come on Yoole will be able to see the photo because we send them an email allowing them to see the picture as long as you provide us with that person’s name and email address.

  2. Why Should I Tag?

    Tagging is a great way to allow other members to quickly determine who’s who in the picture. With tagging, people who otherwise wouldn’t know who you are may like what they see and decide to view your profile. This means that you don’t always need to bring a camera out with you. As long as a friend has one, your antics will be captured and can be shared with the world on Yoole. Basically, the more you tag photos and are tagged in them, the more people on Yoole will know about you and the likelier it is that you will receive many more visitors to your profile.

  3. How Do I Go About Tagging Someone On Yoole?

    The owner of the photo needs to have enabled the picture for universal tagging. If he has, just click on any photo and look for the ‘Tag People’ link on the left. To tag someone you know, click the link, drag the box that appears and crop it. Place this box over the person’s face and select between the list of names that appears. If you are tagging someone who is not a friend on Yoole but is in general, send us their email address and their name and we will send them an email which allows them to see their photo. Always press the ‘Save Tag’ button upon completion. All photos you tag will end up in the ‘Photos of You’ album so the tagged person needs to approve the procedure before it is complete.

  4. Is It Possible To Tag A Non-Member Of Yoole?

    Yes! You can type the name of the person being tagged and if they are a member of Yoole and on your friend’s list, their name will automatically appear on a dropdown box. If they are not a Yoole friend, just give us their email address and name and we can send them a link which enables them to see the picture.

  5. I Have Tagged People In My Albums, Now What?

    Yoole friends that have been tagged in your photos will receive a notification and an alert in their account. This gives them the option of accepting or rejecting the tag. If they accept, the photo ends up in the ‘Photos of You’ section. Non-members of Yoole who are tagged can be notified via email if you send us their emails address and name.

  6. Will I Be Able To See If Someone Has Tagged Me?

    There is a special ‘Connections’ page which enables you to see a host of updates by your friends. The ‘Connections’ page will automatically receive an update if one of your friends has tagged you in a photo.

  7. Will I Be Able To Remove A Tag?

    Not everyone likes having tags on them! If you have changed your mind and want to remove a tag of yourself, just find the photo, hover over the tag, and click the X button that appears on the right hand side of the picture. When you click X, confirm that you want to delete the tag.

  8. Who Is Allowed To Tag Me?

    It is entirely up to you when it comes to deciding who has the right to tag you. Choose ‘Settings’ and ‘Privacy’ before selecting those who you want to tag you if they get the opportunity. This is just one of the numerous options we offer you to keep your information safe and secure.

  9. Is Anyone Else Allowed To Tag Someone In My Pictures?

    Yes. However, you get to choose the people who are allowed perform this action. Click on ‘Settings’, then ‘Privacy’ and you will be given the option to decide who can tag you and others in the photos and videos you have in your albums. There are a host of other security options available to you in ‘Privacy’.

  10. Will I Be Able To Place A Tagged Group Picture In ‘Photos Of You’?

    Yes. Every single photo in which you are tagged ends up in your ‘Photos of You’ album. The advantage of this is that you can put group photos in this album but still be easily identifiable because of the tags. Everyone else in the photo is also easy to identify.

7. Rate Photos

This is a great feature that allows Yoole users to know what their fellow members think of their pictures. It’s a great way to find out what your best photos are.

  1. How Do I Vote?

    All photos have a ‘vote’ option. Just click on it and vote.

  2. I Have No Rating, Why?

  3. Is There Any Reason Why People Are Not Rating My Photos?

    On Yoole, you need to rate other people’s photos before they do the same for you. Keep rating other people and watch as your own rating hopefully skyrockets.
