Is it possible to make my account on the app private so only my current followers can see it? Or is deactivating the only way to remove it from public view?
You’re byte or forum account?
The account on the app, but I don’t think that’s an available feature right now.
Yeah I was about to say I seen here on the forum dom’s profile is hidden so thats what i thought he meant. But no no such feature on byte yet. Would be nice sometimes for many reasons.
Byte should consider adding private features
Maybe, but this isn’t the kind of app that does that, I think once we get big enough it will happen though.
Well the app needs a private mode now. For the first time I need it because I’m being targeted on Twitter and Instagram by homophobes going through my Byte account.
It would be nice to have a private mode like Twitter does so followers can still see content while others can’t.
there seems to be quite a lot of boys on byte who haven’t passed the mental age of 14 and still think attack helicopter and gay jokes are funny. even if you don’t consider them offensive they are just painfully unfunny and overdone at this point
that is so terribly illiterate.
We live in the 21st century… And the world is full of idiots
Im so sorry, I am ashamed and angry about such people.
ah, i see now. i’m really sorry this is happening to you, tom. we’ll work through what it would take to build some privacy features and come back with more details. if you can shed a little more light over DM it would help us understand what we need to build
Wtf its 2020, really?! I’m sorry you’re going through that…
A lot of us from the lgbtq community here on byte are being targeted. I know everyone gets hate here and there whilst on social media platforms. But it’s been happening constantly now and it’s really sad and makes my experience here less enjoyable unfortunately. I can’t believe Tom is being targeted off of byte as well. That’s so scary and sad that people want to target someone for being gay and will go to extreme levels to even intimidate others. Homophobia is real and I don’t know why I thought it wouldn’t happen on byte. I love this place, and everyone on here for the most part is so amazing and supportive of each other! However, those 1,2,3 comments A DAY talking about your sexuality on your own videos (as if it is a BAD THING) can really trigger someone, especially if it’s something they’ve been picked on for their whole entire life. I’m here for you @TomWho as I am here for everyone else! We are stronger in numbers and I hope this can be resolved ASAP because love wins and HATE loses, periodt.
I’m so sorry you’re all experiencing such malice. Although I can’t help with the technical aspect, what can the general community do to support you guys other than report such behavior?
