FAQ ANSWERS

THE LDS LINKUP SERVICE

  • What is LDS LinkUp?

LDS LinkUp is a new and different kind of introduction service where friends help their friends find Ms. or Mr. Right.

 

LDS LinkUp takes a different approach than most online dating services by making it easy for singles, their friends, their friends’ friends, and so on, to combine their lists of eligible matches to build large groups of potential mates. 

 

And because each group is built by invitation - you invite your friends, they invite their friends, etc. - members are pre-screened.  Each member has been hand-picked by a friend in the group.

 

LDS LinkUp also provides state-of-the-art matching tools to help you find the perfect match from your exclusive dating group.  You can search for members who fit specific criteria, or browse to see who invited whom.  Or you can set the LDS LinkUp Agent to seek matches on your behalf.

 

LDS LinkUp puts your network on steroids to help you find your match.  It allows you to systematically leverage your friends' rolodex to build your own personalized pool of potential matches. 

 

Top

Top

  • How is LDS LinkUp different from online dating services?

Unlike traditional online dating services, LDS LinkUp does not broadcast your personal profile to a vast group of strangers.  Instead, LDS LinkUp helps each member and his friends leverage their personal networks to build an invitation-only pool of eligible singles. 

 

Unlike traditional online dating services, LDS LinkUp

  • Is exclusive/invitation-only - Although anyone can join LDS LinkUp, only people who are invited can join your personal LDS LinkUp dating group

  • Leverages your non-single friends who want to help - LDS LinkUp helps you and your friends build a group of eligible singles based on your combined personal networks.  You and your single friends can all benefit from this pool of potential matches.  Your non-single friends can also help by bringing their single friends into the group

  • Provides better information about potential matches - Because everyone at LDS LinkUp is known by his friends, LDS LinkUp can make available friends' comments about members.  The comments provide important context - and a reality check - on what the member says about himself

  • Gives you control of your profile - At LDS LinkUp, you decide who can view your profile.  If you wish, you can restrict viewership to the members of your exclusive dating group

 

Top

  • I'm already using online dating, why should I join LDS LinkUp too?

LDS LinkUp is complementary to other online dating services, because it opens up an entirely different pool of potential matches - your extended social network.  Even if you're already using an online dating service, you can benefit from LDS LinkUp's approach.

 

Top

  • Who can join LDS LinkUp?

Anyone can join LDS LinkUp by starting his or her own LDS LinkUp group and inviting his friends to join.  Only people who are invited by a member of the group, however, can join an existing LDS LinkUp group.

 

Top

  • Who should use LDS LinkUp?

LDS LinkUp is ideal for people who want the benefits of online dating - a large pool of potential matches, search capability - but who aren't comfortable broadcasting their personal profile to strangers.  LDS LinkUp allows its members to apply the advantages of online dating to their own personal networks.  The result is the best of both worlds.

 

LDS LinkUp is also perfect for people who are already using online dating, but who also want to make the most of their personal network to find the perfect mate.

 

Top

  • How much does it cost to use LDS LinkUp?

Basic membership at LDS LinkUp is free.  You can create or join a group, invite others to join, post your personal profile (with photos), search or browse your network to find potential matches, create a "watch list" of interesting listings, or review photos of LDS LinkUp members at no charge. 

 

Charges apply only if you want to sign up for one of our premium services, or if you find a potential match and want to communicate with him or her.  At that time, you can choose from a range of subscription options that allow you to send and receive messages.  Subscriptions start at under $25.

YOUR LDS LINKUP GROUP

  • What is a LDS LinkUp "group"?

Your LDS LinkUp group is the collection of all LDS LinkUp members you are connected to by invitation.  It is the people you invite, plus the people they invite, plus the people they invite, and so on.  It also includes the person who invited you and his or her LDS LinkUp group.

 

Top

  • How do I build my LDS LinkUp group?

You and your friends build your LDS LinkUp group by invitation.  A major key to success is to invite the right friends, to encourage them to sign up, and to see that they, in turn, invite others.  The best invitees:

  • Are eligible singles you would introduce to other friends without hesitation

  • Are likely to know other interesting singles that you would like to have in your network

  • Will actively participate in LDS LinkUp, inviting their friends and encouraging them to join

You should also invite your non-single friends, who are not "in the market" themselves and do not post profiles, but who can play an important role by inviting other members and building your network.

 

 

Top

  • Can anyone join my LDS LinkUp group?

No.  Only people who are invited by you or by other members of your group can join your group.  On the other hand, anyone can found his own group.

 

Top

  • What is an "invitee"?

An invitee is a friend of a LDS LinkUp member who has been invited to join his group. 

 

Top

  • What is an "invitor"?

An invitor is the friend who invited a given member of LDS LinkUp to join his group.  When viewing the friends of any LDS LinkUp member, his invitor will be indicated with an asterisk next to his screen name.

 

Top

  • How long will it take to build my group?

If you have been invited to join an existing group, you will immediately inherit the group of your invitor and can build from there.  If you are creating a new group, you will be starting from scratch. 

 

The speed at which your group grows is up to you.  Growth will be determined by how quickly you invite friends and get them to sign up, and by how quickly they get their friends to sign up.  Fortunately, the structure of LDS LinkUp helps build groups quickly.  Check out our Growth Calculator to see how fast your group can grow! 

 

Building a LDS LinkUp group is an investment in your future, and requires some patience.  All the better reason to start today!

 

Top

  • Can I view profiles immediately?

Yes.  You will immediately be able to view the profiles of LDS LinkUp members who have chosen to make their profiles visible to all LDS LinkUp members.  In addition, if you have been invited to join an existing group, you will immediately be able to view the profiles in that group.  If you are starting a new group, you will be able to view profiles in your group as it grows.

 

Top

INVITING YOUR FRIENDS

  • Why is it important that I invite my friends to join LDS LinkUp?

Your LDS LinkUp group is built by invitation.  Although you inherit the group of the friend who invited you, your goal is to expand your pool of eligible singles by inviting your friends.  The more high-quality people you invite, the more they will invite and the better chance you will have of finding your Ms. or Mr. Right.

 

Top

  • Who should I invite to join LDS LinkUp?

The size of your LDS LinkUp group and the quality of the potential matches will depend on the friends you invite and on their willingness and ability to bring other interesting singles to your network.  The best invitees:

  • Are eligible singles you would introduce to your other friends without hesitation

  • Are likely to know other interesting singles that you would like to have in your network

  • Will actively participate in LDS LinkUp, inviting other members and encouraging them to join

Remember to invite your non-single friends as well, as they play an important role by inviting other interesting singles to your group.

 

 

Top

  • How should I follow up after sending an invitation?

Experience shows that it is most effective to follow up each email invitation with a timely telephone call to explain what LDS LinkUp is and encourage your invitee to join.  Some people are reluctant to join any Internet service, let alone one devoted to romance.  By following up with a call, you show that you are serious in your effort to find a match and that you value their help in the process.

 

In the event that an invitee has not responded to your invitation within a week, we recommend that you send a follow up email encouraging them to respond to the original invitation.

 

Top

  • What happens if I invite someone who is already a member of LDS LinkUp?

When an existing LDS LinkUp member accepts your invitation, your group immediately expands to include him and his existing LDS LinkUp group.  Similarly, anyone who accepts your invitation adds your entire group to his.

 

Top

  • What happens if I invite someone who doesn't want to join?

Your invitee can simply decline the invitation with a couple of mouse clicks.  No harm done.  You can check the status of your invitations by clicking on the Invite menu at the top of most LDS LinkUp pages.

 

Top

  • Can I review the invitations I have sent and their status?

Yes.  Just click on the Invite menu at the top of most LDS LinkUp pages.

 

Top

  • Should I continue to invite more friends over time?

Absolutely.  You and your friends will benefit by adding new, high-quality members to your group.  And the people you invite will in turn invite interesting new singles that you may want to meet.

 

Top

YOUR LDS LINKUP PROFILE

  • What is a "screen name"?

Your screen name is the name that people at LDS LinkUp will know you by.  For everyone's safety and comfort, LDS LinkUp keeps real names and email addresses confidential.

 

Note that your real name is used when you invite a friend and that the friend's real name is used to personalize the invitation email.

 

Top

  • What is a "headline"?

Your headline acts as the title of your personal LDS LinkUp profile.  It can be up to 65 characters long and is typically an appropriate catch phrase or a set of adjectives that describes you.  Of course it cannot contain inappropriate sexual content.

 

Top

  • What should I put in my self description?

Your self description is your chance to tell a potential match about yourself: what you like, what you hate, what you do for work, what you do for fun, what you do on steamy Saturday nights and what you do on lazy Sunday mornings.  Your self description is critical in giving potential matches a sense of your personality and what you're about.  Of course, like your headline, your self description cannot contain inappropriate sexual content.  Your self description can be up to 1500 characters long.

 

Top

  • Should I put my name, email address, or telephone number in my profile?

Absolutely not.  LDS LinkUp values our members' confidentiality and has designed LDS LinkUp to be a good environment in which to meet and communicate with other singles without revealing contact information.  LDS LinkUp's Terms of Service specifically prohibit members from disclosing names, email addresses, or telephone numbers in member profiles.

 

Top

  • What is a "match headline"?

Your match headline is a collection of adjectives or a phrase that captures what you are looking for in a match.  A loving nature, a bubbly personality, a beautiful face, a deep wallet, or a sporting partner, your match headline distills what you are looking for into 65 characters or fewer.  Of course it cannot contain inappropriate sexual content.

 

Top

  • What should I put in my match description?

Your match description is the place to describe in more detail what you are seeking in a match.  Desired personality traits, physical features, interests and hobbies all will help potential matches screen themselves while getting a better understanding of you.  Of course, your match description cannot contain inappropriate sexual content.  Like your self description, your match description can be up to 1000 characters in length.

 

Top

  • Do I need to fill out all the detailed information about myself and my ideal match?

Most people using LDS LinkUp want to have more information rather than less about potential matches before initiating contact.  The details you provide give people a better sense of who you are and what you're looking for in a match, both of which are key to the selection process.  Most members will want to see this information before either sending you a message or responding to a message you send.  It is in your best interest to provide as much information as possible.

 

Top

  • How do I view my own profile?

You can view your own profile by clicking on the "Profile" menu on any LDS LinkUp page.  Once on the Create/Update Your Profile page, click on the "View profile" link.  Alternatively, you can select "View Your Profile" from the drop-down "Profile" menu on any LDS LinkUp page.

 

Top

PHOTOS

  • Do I need to post photos?

We strongly encourage you to post a photo, whether you're 'in the market" or not. 

 

If you're single, you should be aware that profiles with photos get far more attention than profiles without. The fact is that looking at a photo is an important part of most people's process for selecting a potential match. 

 

If you're not single / not looking, posting a photo helps identify you to your friends and helps make LDS LinkUp more fun; your photo will be visible only to members of you own LDS LinkUp group.

 

Top

  • What kind of photos are best?

All kinds of photos can work, provided that they a) show you clearly and b) make it clear which person is you.  For this reason, we recommend photos where you are the only or the primary person.  We also recommend that at least one of your photos (LDS LinkUp allows you to post 3 with your profile) be a close-up and that one of your photos show your whole physique.

 

Top

  • What is LDS LinkUp's policy about unacceptable photos?

LDS LinkUp reserves the right to reject any photo that we, for any reason, feel is inappropriate.  Examples of inappropriate photos include those that contain nudity, sexually explicit themes, or profanity.  LDS LinkUp reviews all photos before posting and reserves the right to remove any photo after posting, at our discretion.  See LDS LinkUp's Terms of Service.

 

Top

  • What is my "primary" photo?

You must designate one of your three photos as your primary photo.  It is "Photo 1" when you are adding or updating your photos.  The primary photo is shown with the short version of your profile and is shown in a larger size than your other photos in the detailed version of your profile.

 

Top

  • How do I add photos to my profile?

The best way to add photos is to upload digital photo files (preferably .jpg files) directly, either during the sign-up process, or by choosing "Profile" from the menu bar at the top of most LDS LinkUp pages and clicking on "Add Photos".

 

Please note that LDS LinkUp will resize larger photos to optimize download times for our users. In addition, LDS LinkUp does not allow members to upload photos larger than 500kb.


If you have only photos larger than 500kb, please email them as attachments to
photos@ldslinkup.com. Please include your member email address and password in your message.
 

If you do not have digital versions of your photos, you can create them from traditional photo prints by using a desktop scanner, if you have one.  If you don't own a scanner, take your photos to a photo finishing outlet, most of which have scanners.  For a limited time, LDS LinkUp is also offering a free service to scan traditional photo prints for your profile.  See the entry below.

 

Top

  • How do I upload photos?

To upload photos, choose "Profile" from the menu bar at the top of most LDS LinkUp pages, then click on "Add Photos".  You will see three blank form fields for the names of your three digital photo files.  Press the top "Browse" button (for Photo #1) and browse through your computer files until you find and select your primary photo.  Next, press the second "Browse" button to find and select your second photo, and the third "Browse" button to find and select your third photo.  Once you have selected all three digital photo files, press "Upload".  After the files have uploaded successfully, you will see confirmation. 

 

Please note that the best size for your photo is approximately 500 pixels in the larger dimension in a .jpg file.  LDS LinkUp will resize larger photos to optimize download times for our users. In addition, LDS LinkUp does not allow members to upload photos larger than 500kb.

 

If you have only photos larger than 500kb, please email them as attachments to photos@ldslinkup.com. Please include your member email address and password in your message.

 

Typically, it takes 24 to 48 hours for LDS LinkUp to approve and post your photos.

 

Top

  • Can I email photos?

Yes, although please be aware that uploading photos is the fastest way to get your photos posted.  You can email your photos as attachments to photos@ldslinkup.com.

 

Please note that the best size for your photo is approximately 500 pixels in the larger dimension in a .jpg file.  LDS LinkUp will resize larger photos to optimize download times for our users.

 

Top

  • What if I don't have any digital photos?

If you do not have digital versions of your photos, you have a few options.  You can:

  • Use a scanner (yours or a friend's) to create digital photos from traditional prints, or

  • Go to a camera store or Walgreens, Kinkos, Costco, etc. to have them scan the prints for you, or

  • Mail your prints to LDS LinkUp and we will scan them for you for free!  Note that a) this is a limited time offer, b) we will scan only photos we approve for your LDS LinkUp profile, and c) you must be an active LDS LinkUp member with a posted profile to be eligible.

    Instructions:  1) Write your name, email address, and LDS LinkUp password on the back of each photo; 2) mail your photos to:  LDS LinkUp Photos, 3450 Sacramento St. #300, San Francisco, CA 94118, USA; 3) Include a stamped, self addressed envelope if you'd like the photos returned.  Please do not send irreplaceable photos.  LDS LinkUp cannot be responsible for the condition of the photos that we return.

 

Top

  • How long will it take for my photos to appear once I have submitted them?

It typically takes 24 to 48 hours after you upload your photos for us to review, approve, and post them.  If you email photos it can take up to twice as long.  Of course, unacceptable photos will not be posted.  Prints mailed to LDS LinkUp will typically be posted within 72 hours from the time we receive them.

 

Top

  • Can I change my photos after I have submitted them?

Absolutely.  Click on the "Your profile" link on any LDS LinkUp page, then click on the "Add photos" or "Your photos" link.  Click the "Browse" for the photo you wish to replace and upload a new photo to replace it.  Please note that it may take 24 to 48 hours for the new photo to appear.

 

Top

FRIENDS' COMMENTS

  • What are "friends' comments"?

Friends' comments are a unique feature of LDS LinkUp, where a member's friends - the person who invited the member plus the people the member invited - write short comments about the member.  These descriptions, adjectives, and stories about each member from people who know him best can provide invaluable independent points of view that complement a member's own self description.

 

Top

  • What should I say when commenting on a friend?

Friends' comments are most effective when they give an independent perspective on a member's person and personality.  A few well-chosen adjectives, a description in your own words, or even a telling anecdote can be very valuable to someone who might want to meet your friend.

 

Of course, as a friend you are not expected to focus on weaknesses.  Nevertheless, what you choose to emphasize will communicate your friend's areas of relative strength.

 

Top

  • Should I use my friend's name when writing my comment?

No.  Please use your friend's screen name only.  LDS LinkUp wants to protect the privacy and identity of its members.  Therefore, our Terms of Service prohibit using your friend's name, email address, or phone number in your comments.

 

Top

  • Will my friend know which comment is from me?

Yes.  Your screen name will be associated with your comment.

 

Top

  • What happens if I don't make a comment about one of my friends?

Your comments about each of your friends (the people you invited plus the people who invited you) are very important.  Because friends' comments provide such a valuable perspective, listings without comments (like listings without photos) get less attention and draw fewer messages than listings with comments.  Hence, you essentially owe your friends (most of whom you invited to join!) your best effort at insightful comments.

 

Top

RESPONDING TO INVITATIONS

  • Why should I accept an invitation to join LDS LinkUp?

There are three reasons to accept a friend's invitation to join LDS LinkUp: to help your friend, to help yourself, and to help your other single friends. 

 

  • You can help your friend by helping him build his LDS LinkUp group.  Your friend is using LDS LinkUp to help find the perfect match among people in his extended social network.  You can help your friend grow his group of high-quality singles by joining yourself and inviting your single friends to join as well.

  • You can help yourself, if you are single and looking, by taking advantage of the LDS LinkUp group you are helping your friend build.  If you, too, are looking for a unique source of potential matches, accepting your friend's invitation can give you a great start.  When you accept the invitation, you inherit the your friend's LDS LinkUp group.  When you invite your friends to join and they invite their friends, you all benefit.

  • And you can help your other single friends by bringing them into your LDS LinkUp group and share with them the benefits of the LDS LinkUp service.

 

Top

  • What are my options when I receive an invitation?

When you receive an invitation to join LDS LinkUp as a member, you have four options:

 

  • Accept the invitation as a single member - this will add you to the invitor's group.  You will be asked to fill in information for your own LDS LinkUp profile and to invite your single friends to join the group.

  • Accept the invitation as a not single/not looking member - this will add you to the invitor's group, but you won't fill out a profile or appear in other people's searches.  You will still be asked to invite your friends to join the group and to comment on your friends.

  • Decline the invitation but start your own LDS LinkUp group - the invitor will be told that you have declined his invitation to join his group.  He will not be told that you are creating your own LDS LinkUp group.

  • Decline the invitation - the invitor will be told that you have declined his invitation to join his group.

 

Top

  • What happens if I accept an invitation?

When you accept an invitation, you immediately become part of the invitor's group.  Similarly, if you are already a LDS LinkUp member and have your own group, your group and the invitor's group will be merged.

 

Top

  • What happens if I want to help my friend, but don't want to use LDS LinkUp myself?

If you are not interested in using LDS LinkUp yourself but know some eligible singles who might want to join the invitor's network, then you should accept the invitation as a not single/not looking member.  You can then help your friend by inviting others to join the group, but you will not have your own LDS LinkUp profile.

 

Top

  • What happens if someone I don't feel comfortable with invites me to join his group?

You can (and should) decline the invitation.  You have a responsibility both to yourself and to the other members of your group not to introduce people you don't feel comfortable with.

 

When you decline an invitation, the invitor does not necessarily know whether you declined because you don't want to join LDS LinkUp or because you don't want to join his/her group.

 

If you are interested in LDS LinkUp but do not want to join the group of an invitor, you can always create your own group and build it by inviting people you do feel comfortable with.

 

Top

  • What happens if I decline an invitation?

When you decline an invitation, the invitor is notified that you have declined, and you are not added to the invitor's group.  If you are already a member of LDS LinkUp with your own group, your group and the invitor's group remain distinct and separate.

 

Top

SEARCHING WHO NEW

  • What are my search options at LDS LinkUp?

LDS LinkUp gives you a variety of tools for finding your match among LDS LinkUp's members.  You can do a quick or an advanced search to find members matching basic criteria.  You can do a keyword search to find members who use specific words in their self and match descriptions.  You can search for specific members using their screen name.  You can save quick or advanced searches to use them again later.  You can also choose whether to search just you group or all LDS LinkUp members.

 

Top

  • What is the difference between a "quick" search and an "advanced" search?

A quick search allows you to define only four criteria: sex, age range, maximum distance, and scope of search.  An advanced search allows these four criteria, and in addition allows you to specify many other attributes, including physical, ethnic, occupational, and religious parameters.

 

Top

  • Can I save searches so I can repeat them later?

Absolutely.  To save a search, click "Save search" at the top of a search results page.  To view your saved searches, click on "Saved searches" under the "Search" menu.

 

Top

  • Can I search all of LDS LinkUp?

You can select the scope of your search to include any combination of your LDS LinkUp group and the rest of LDS LinkUp.  Your search results will include only those members whose visibility preference allows you to view their profile.  The results are color-coded to let you know which member comes from your group and which from the rest of LDS LinkUp.

 

Top

  • Why do different members' listings have different colors?

LDS LinkUp color-codes member listings to indicate the member's connection to you.  Blue members belong to your LDS LinkUp group.  Gray members are from outside your network, i.e., from the rest of LDS LinkUp.

 

Top

BROWSING WHO NEW

  • What are the different ways I can browse LDS LinkUp?

LDS LinkUp provides several different ways to browse through its member listings.  You can browse listings of your friends, you can browse their friends (or the friends of any LDS LinkUp member), you can browse your group, you can browse the rest of LDS LinkUp, or you can browse your watch list.  You can browse recent additions to LDS LinkUp or members who have recently been active.

 

Note that member listings are color-coded.  Listings from members in your group are shown in Blue.  Listings from members outside your group are shown in Gray.

 

Note also that you will not be able to view full listings for members whose visibility preference restricts you from seeing them.

 

Top

  • How do I browse my friends' listings?

To view your friends' listings, click on "Browse" in the menu bar, then click on the "Your friends" link.

Top

  • Can I see who invited a given member?

To see who invited a given member, click on the "view friends" link under the photo in the member's profile.  The listings for invitor(s) will be marked with an asterisk (*).

  • Can I see who was invited by a given member?

To view the members invited by a given member, click on the "view friends" link under the photo in the member's profile.  Listings without asterisks (*) are the invitees of the member.

 

Top

  • Can I browse members outside my LDS LinkUp group?

You can browse members from outside your group ("the rest of LDS LinkUp") who have not restricted their visibility preference to their group only.  You can browse these members by clicking on "Browse" in the menu bar and then clicking on the "Rest of LDS LinkUp" link.

Members who are not part of your group are color-coded Navy Blue.

 

Top

  • Can I see the most recent additions to LDS LinkUp?

You can see the most recent members to join LDS LinkUp by clicking on "Browse" in the menu bar and then clicking on the "Recent additions" link.

 

Top

  • Can I browse members who have recently been active?

You can see the most recent members to join LDS LinkUp by clicking on "Browse" in the menu bar and then clicking on the "Recently active" link.

 

Top

  • What is my "watch list"?

Your watch list allows you to keep track of the listings of specific members you have found most interesting when searching or browsing.  Adding a member to your watch list makes it easy for you to return to the member's profile without having to repeat the search that identified the member.

 

Top

  • How do I view my watch list?

To view your watch list, click on "Watch List" under "Browse" in the menu bar at the top of most LDS LinkUp pages.

 

Top

  • How do I add to / remove from my watch list?

To add a member to your watch list, simply click on "Add to watch list" under the photo in any member profile.  To remove a member from your watch list, click on "Remove from list" under the member's photo on a watch list page.

 

Top

WHO NEW AGENT

  • What is the LDS LinkUp Agent service?

The LDS LinkUp Agent service watches new members as they join and notifies you when a potential match joins.  You can set the LDS LinkUp Agent to watch either for specific criteria you set, or to use its own proprietary matching algorithms to identify potential matches, or both.  When the LDS LinkUp Agent identifies a new potential match, it sends you an email alert so you can check out the new member's profile for yourself.

 

Top

  • What are the benefits of the LDS LinkUp Agent service?

The LDS LinkUp Agent allows busy Who New members to keep up-to-date on potential matches as their LDS LinkUp groups grow.  Without the LDS LinkUp Agent, members must return to the LDS LinkUp site and browse recent additions or run repeat searches.  With the LDS LinkUp Agent, members are notified by email when a new potential match joins.

 

Top

  • How much does the LDS LinkUp Agent service cost?

The LDS LinkUp Agent service can be purchased via a separate subscription or as part of an overall subscription package.  Please review our subscription options for details.

 

Top

WHO NEW MESSAGES

  • How do I send a message to another LDS LinkUp member?

When viewing a member's profile, click the "send email" link, then compose your subject line and message and send it when you are ready.  Note that you must be a subscriber as well as a member to send messages.  LDS LinkUp offers several subscription options to meet your needs.

 

Top

  • How will I know when I receive a LDS LinkUp message?

Messages from other LDS LinkUp members will be sent to your login email address.  The messages will be from sender_screen_name@ldslinkup.com.  Note that the person sending the email will not know your actual email address and you will not know his or her actual email address.

 

Top

  • Can I view messages I have sent and/or received?

Yes.  Click on "Mailbox" in the menu bar to view a list of messages you have sent and received.  To read the message text for a particular message, click on the subject line.  Please note that LDS LinkUp keeps messages for only 60 days.

YOUR WHO NEW PREFERENCES

  • What preferences can I control?

LDS LinkUp allows you to control your membership through several preferences: romantic status (which indicates whether you are single and looking or not single/not looking), visibility (which controls who can see your profile), membership status (which controls whether your profile is visible to anyone and whether you can view anyone else's profile), number of members per page (which controls how many members are shown per page when you are browsing through your network), and promotional email (which controls whether you will receive emails with updates and promotional offers on LDS LinkUp services).

  • What is my "romantic status"?

Your romantic status says whether you are in the market, i.e. "single", or not in the market, i.e., not single or not looking.  Singles have personal profiles on LDS LinkUp, while non-singles do not.

  • How do I change my romantic status?

To change your membership type, first go to the Preference page:  click on "Your account" at the top of every LDS LinkUp page, then click on "Preferences".  Once on the Preferences page, select the romantic status you wish and press "Done".

  • What is "visibility"?

Your visibility preference determines who can see your profile.  There are three options for your visibility preference: your group only, LDS LinkUp members only, and all LDS LinkUp visitors.

  • If you opt for "your group only" as your preference, only people in your LDS LinkUp group can view your profile. 

  • If you choose "LDS LinkUp members only" as your preference, all member of LDS LinkUp - including those who are not in your group - will be able to view your profile.  This is the default setting when you join LDS LinkUp.

  • If you choose "all LDS LinkUp visitors" as your preference, any visitor to the LDS LinkUp site will be able to view your profile.

  • What is my "membership status"?

Your membership status controls whether you are an "Active" or "Inactive" member of LDS LinkUp.  If you are active, you can use all LDS LinkUp functions and your profile can be viewed according to your visibility preference.  If you are inactive, your profile cannot be viewed by others and you cannot view other members' profiles, but you can edit and view your own profile.
