How To Enable Private Message in Google Plus 5

At first I was confused, why isn’t this enabled? So I dug a bit deeper, and found out how to enable Google Plus.

Hit up and log in

Then select your Account settings page :

Now select “edit profile”

Now you should be in the area where you can change your biography information, you can also select the drop down for private messages/emails.

You can select many options to enable messaging. Got to love how customized with your security google let’s you be.

Now just save your options, and you’re good to go. This is what users/gplus people will see if they’re allowed, and you/they have messaging enabled :

If you’re not allowed, or the user does not have it enabled, you won’t see anything.

enjoy 🙂

    Also, you can address ONLY the person you want to send a message to in a post. This is the equivalent to a “Private Message”… there is a tutorial that explains further here:
