    how do you add one to a group?
    if you can do that, you don't have to send DM one by one. you can just add people to a group and broadcast?

    it's becoming a trend lately. whatsapp and such started this. people can add you to a group without your approval.

    What do you mean how can you add to a group?? Start a direct message then add people to the message..its always been that way. When you search someones name in the DM everybody can be searched not just your followers.

    Lmao. This is a good sign :)

    Sooner or later you should start to notice your blog getting thrown into groups with the other top blogs in your niche. If it happens consistently enough they will begin to recognize your handle- It's like you're being introduced/socially proofed to them before you ever extend your hand to do business

    The best thing to stop this is start the useful topic by yourself and ask people the solutions,Intelligent will reply you back.

    i like the theory and positive thinking.
    however, before i make a name in those conversations, i'd be buried in messages and cannot find the messages I really want.
