Too many new messages? Take a break!

Many members have told us that they really enjoy meeting new people on Oh My Japan, but from time to time they want to take a break from meeting new people.

I’m glad that Oh My Japan has so many members who make an earnest effort to respond when they receive a message.

I also thought it was a great idea to make it easy for members to take a break, so I’m happy to announce our newest feature, “Hide my profile.”

Hiding your profile is useful when you want to keep talking to people you have met on Oh My Japan but do not have the time or interest to meet more new people.

* Your profile will be hidden until you come back to this page and unhide it.
* You can keep talking to all members you are already exchanging messages with.

This feature can be toggled on and off via the account page.
