    Well I cannot see anywhere to change Profile messages to Members only and everything else in Privacy is set to Members only.

      Personally, I don't see why people post messages on profile pages instead of starting 'Conversations', AKA PMs. I've set mine so that only people I follow can post on my profile, and as I don't follow anybody that prevents any postings there.

      Mine are now set to People I follow only. But the message is still there, even though I have logged out and back in again.

        Anybody know what (if any?) advantages there are in restricting viewing profiles? (other than restricting access to profile messages).
