These are the common help oriented questions that we have encountered with members. If there is something that you do not see please go to our contact page, or to our official 800 Social Page and ask us. We would love to help you.
HOW DO I MAKE AN ACCOUNT? You can go to the main page, and in the middle box that says sign in, you will see on the bottom a create account link.
I CANNOT LOG IN? First, did you create an account. If so then there are a few things to check.
1. Is the user name and or email right you are using. 2. Is the password you are using right.
If you continue to have problems, simply click on the link in the middle that says "Forgot Password". You will be asked to enter the email you used to register, and will be sent a reset link. If you still have problems, please contact us, we will help you ASAP.
WHAT IS A GOOD PASSWORD TO USE? The best password is something only you know. A combination of letters and numbers. Stay away from birth-dates and the like. Use a combination that only you know, and change your password every so often. Do not use the same password for multiple accounts.
DO YOU CHARGE MONEY? No we do not, 800 Social is free to use for all.
WHAT COUNTRY ARE YOU BASED IN? We are located in the United States, our servers are all based in the United States.
CAN I BLOCK CONTENT? Yes you can, once you create an account you can through your member profile settings block a member, or stop seeing their posted content. You also can report anything that you see with a simple button.
IS THE SITE SECURE? Yes it is, we use standard encryption of data when on the site, and we also use servers based in the United States that utilize advanced security and encryption measures. Your data is as safe as possible on our site.
DO YOU SELL MY DATA TO ADVERTISERS? No we do not, we do not sell or market or data-mine our members. We feel this is a basic inherent betrayal of the trust of our membership.
CAN I MAKE A CHURCH OR BUSINESS PAGE? Yes you can, you are welcome to create a Church or Business page on our site, as long as you follow the Business terms as listed in our footer. Churches and businesses are required to make Pages not Groups. Although you can create a group once you make your official page.
CAN THOSE WHO ARE IN THE LGBQT COMMUNITY JOIN? We are an open social media site and respect the ideas, feelings and wants of all people. We welcome all members of the LGBQT community to join and engage with others in a positive way. 800 Social is a community of people, and ideas and beliefs. All are welcome here.
HOW DO YOU HANDLE FAKE NEWS? With the recent spate of fake and fraudulent news hitting other social media sites, 800 Social has taken some proactive measure to help curb this. We also will delete posts and links that are fake news, and or link to know fake news sites. Lying is simply wrong, and the world is a complicated enough place as is, to add to it news that we cannot trust.
WHAT IF I AM BEING HARASSED? We at 800 Social take harassment very seriously, and we have a zero tolerance policy regarding it. If you feel someone is harassing you, or if you feel threatened. We of course suggest that if you feel in danger in any way call 911 or your local police to report it. We also ask that you screen shot the page of the incident. You can do that by holding down the CRTL key and pressing the PRINT SCREEN key. Then open any desktop publishing program you have such as Word, or Notepad and press the Crtl key and V key at the same time. The image will paste in the document.
Also, report the incident to us, please in your message give us as much information as possible, and we will act on the report.
