Zocialized? Zocialized was MyInkedSpace. The name changed in 2014 to help with getting more people to join and the site is much more than just tattoos.

  • Go to your profile. You can get there by clicking your username at the top of the left navigation menu. If you're using a mobile phone you'll need first expand the menu by tapping the menu icon at the top left of any page.

  • Click the button with an icon that looks like a tear drop at the top left of the page. This will take you to the covers directory.

Currently, you can use a cover image and set link colors. Zocialized is transitioning from the old style profile themes to the new trend of cover images. Currently the theme builder is unavailable while changes are made to it but we intend to give you more control over the styling of your profile.

See the other help topic on cover images.

Zocialized provides a simple layout mode and an advanced. The simple layout is intended to make Zocialized less confusing and by doing so it takes away profile features and customization. If you wish to customize what shows on your profile the first step is to make sure you're using the Advanced Layout.

Next, simply update your privacy settings picking the items you want shown on your profile.

Privacy Settings

You can customize it from the Account & Password Reset Options page.

Doing so can change your profile link from:

There several things that can result in this problem.

  • Do you have a profile picture, which shows your face? If you don't have a profile picture you won't get many profile views. If your profile picture is of something other than yourself that'll also cut down on profile views.

  • Are you on here frequently? If you login once per day or once every few days you won't receive very many profile views or messages. Most members find new people from either "Feature Me" at the top of certain pages, or "Meet People". If you're not online you'll be harder to find in "Meet People". So stay active on the site!

Tips

  • Stay active on the site as mentioned above. This is very important for gaining profile views and messages.

  • Go into the chat rooms and chat. This generally results in a quick boost in profile views and friend requests.

  • Send members private messages. While you can include a message with friend requests, sending a private message is far better and will increase your chances of getting a reply. Mention something that caught your attention about the member or something they wrote on their profile.

  • Comment on members status updates. This is a great way of making new friends. You can view status updates by clicking "Activity Stream" from the left navigation menu. Use the "Filter" at the top to view everyone's updates.

  • Add yourself to "Feature Me". This provides the biggest boost in profile views.

If you're in the United States and the zip code you provided shows the wrong town this may happen for multiple reasons:

1. More than one town shares the same zip code.

2. You may have the wrong zip code entered. Edit your profile to verify.

3. We may have the wrong town in our database. Please let us know by posting the Help group.

This may be the result of site changes. If you had joined Zocialized prior to August 2014 your account is gone. Zocialized was 1 of 2 social networks shutdown. The 3rd (MyInkedSpace) was renamed to Zocialized in October 2014. It was never the intention to rename it, but it's a much better name for the site. All 3 sites were pretty much the same, including the layout. If you joined Zocialized prior to August 2014 you'll need to create a new account. If you have a MyInkedSpace account you can login using that.

Blings & Bling Bucks

Bling Bucks is the site currency which is used for buying VIP, advertising your profile, giving members profile gifts, and more. Bling Bucks can be bought, earned, or given to you by other members.

VIP is a Bling that unlocks a lot of features, such as seeing who's been viewing your profile, pictures, videos, and if your sent messages have been read. There's quite a few things included with VIP.

VIP

Titles display after your username on parts of the site. You can set your own title by going to Get Blings and then Custom Title.

Most of MyInkedSpace is free. You can send private messages, IM, chat, poke, leave comments, etc all for free.

MyInkedSpace costs money every month to stay up. There's server expenses, bandwidth, etc that have to be paid. In order to help ensure that MyInkedSpace can stay up for everyone to use some features can be paid for with the site currency, Points. Points can be earned or bought. 

For every person you refer you receive 1-day of VIP! Note: Creating fake accounts will get your account perm banned.

Buying is the fastest way and helps the most since the site expenses are paid with real world money, not the site currency.

Points name changed back to Bling Bucks. That's the only change that's taken place, no currency was lost or changed.

This is a feature of VIP. The color used is based on your text color when using the dark site theme. If your text color uses multiple colors, this uses the very first one. So you can change the background color by changing your text color.

Go to the members profile and use the arrow button below their profile picture. There you'll find a button to Bling them. You'll be taken to the Blings page where you can pick the Bling you wish to give them.

Messaging & IM

To disable notifications, go to Settings and then Email & Site under the Notification section.

To enable IM notifications, go to Settings and then IM Settings.

IM Settings

On the IM settings page you can chose who can send you instant messages. Go to Settings and then IM Settings.

IM Settings

Currently, the only way to stop someone from sending you instant messages after they've started is to block their profile. You can do this by going to their profile and clicking the button at the top right that has a circle with a line through it.

By default, members see your Kik username if you've specified one when editing your profile but you can change permissions.

Kik Permission

Most likely this was an accident by the member. We recommend you send the member a private message letting them know that they made a mistake when they wrote their Kik username. If this doesn't work or you're unable to message the member, you may post in the Help group and a moderator will contact the member.

By default, members see your Kik username if you specified one when editing your profile. The best thing to do is update permission to Friends so you can control who has access to it. This will cut down on unwanted Kik messages.

Kik Permission

If you provided your Kik username when editing your profile all members see it by default. The best thing to do is update permission to Friends so you can control who has access to it. This will cut down on unwanted Kik messages.

Kik Permission

Please be aware that we are not associated with Kik, all we can do is help you control who you give your Kik to on Zocialized.

By default, anyone can contact you, but you can limit this to a specific age range and gender in privacy settings. Go Settings and then Privacy Settings.

Privacy Settings

People & Friends

Crush isn't so special if you can crush multiple people.

You can turn off the flirt notifications by going to Settings and then Email & Site under the Notifications sections.

Go to the members profile and at the top click the button with the star icon on it. When the star is filled in it means the member has been added as a favorite.

There are a couple differences between them.

1. Friend requests must be approved. They are two-way connections. Favorites is a one-way connection and does not require approval.

2. Members can restrict some or all of their profile to Friends. If you add a member as a Favorite this doesn't give you access to parts of their profile that may be restricted to Friends.

Adding a member as a Favorite is similar to Following on Twitter. You can see everyone you've added as a favorite and view status updates by them.

By default, anyone can send you a friend request if enabled, but you can limit this to a specific age range and gender in privacy settings. Go Settings and then Privacy Settings.

Privacy Settings

We do not have proximity information for the United Kingdom at this time, but it is planned for the future. Zocialized does have members from the UK.

You can report someone by going to their profile and clicking the button at the top-right that has a Flag on it. Through-out Zocialized you'll see buttons with a flag on them, which enables you to submit a report.

Pictures

Albums keys are used to give members access to your private albums (albums with "Only Me" permission). Those albums are otherwise only viewable by yourself.

You can change your picture simply by:

  • Viewing the picture you've uploaded that you want to use as your profile picture.

  • Under the picture is a button to make the picture your primary picture (profile picture).

My Picture Albums

View the picture and click the button with the icon of a trash can on it at the top right of the page.

To get to your pictures, click your username on the left navigation menu. If you're using a mobile phone you'll need to open the menu by using the menu button at the top left of the page. From your profile click your profile picture or the button with a picture on it at the top left of the page.

Picture Albums

It might be a little confusing getting to your pictures and the picture upload page.

  • Go to your profile. You can get there by clicking your username at the top of the left navigation menu. If you're using a mobile phone you'll need first expand the menu by tapping the menu icon at the top left of any page.

  • Click the Upload Pictures button.

  • Select the album you wish to upload to and use one of the options below it to get your pictures on here.

It might be a little confusing getting to your pictures, but once you learn how it's easy.

  • Go to your profile. You can get there by clicking your username at the top of the left navigation menu. If you're using a mobile phone you'll need first expand the menu by tapping the menu icon at the top left of any page.

  • Click the button with a picture icon on it at the top left of the page. This will take you to your picture albums.

  • Click an album you wish to view or the "View All Pictures" button at the bottom.

You can rotate the picture so it displays correctly. To do this view the picture and click the button at the top right that has a half circle with an arrow on it.

To get to your pictures:

  • Click the button with a picture icon on it at the top left of the page. This will take you to your picture albums.

  • Click the album which has the picture you wish to rotate.

Depending on the angle the picture was taken it can show up sideways on here. But you can rotate it after uploading it! View the picture and then click the rotate button at the very top of the page. It's the one that looks like a half circle with an arrow.

Owned

Hell was a game similar to Owned but was designed intentionally to turn players against one another. It was a team based game that just didn't take off. Not enough people played it and because of this it was more of a duplicate of Owned. Hell is gone, but those Hellraisers still have their title. If you see Hellraiser on a members profile you know they were one of the top players.

You aren't but it can seem that way because values go up faster than cash. Here's an example:

You buy person A for $500, you paid $500, their price is now $600. Another person buys them from you for the $600. You just made $100. But person A is now worth $700. If you only have $600 even though you made $100 you can't afford to buy person A any more. You have to buy some cheaper ones to make more cash to buy person A. It's a lot harder in the beginning because cash is so low. You have to buy a lot of cheaper ones to make money to buy the expensive ones where the bigger profit is.

Go into Owned and click the button with the gear icon at the top right of the page. There you will find notification settings for Owned.

From the Owned settings page you can opt-out.

Videos

If the upload itself fails it's usually due to a filesize issue. Zocialized allows pretty large videos, but nothing close to a full-length movie.  If your upload fails the processing that takes place after the upload, this is usually because the video is of an unsupported encoding type or bitrate.

You can add YouTube videos to your profile:

Find a video on YouTube and copy the video id from the URL.
Example:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bZkp7q19f0


After the v= is what is needed: 9bZkp7q19f0

Add the tag (without the space): [ youtube]9bZkp7q19f0[/youtube]
That'll show like this:

If you added a YouTube video then it must have been removed on YouTube. The site checks periodically to ensure that YouTube videos still exist and if they don't the video is removed the site.

If you uploaded a video it probably failed processing which resulted in it being removed. When videos are uploaded they go through a conversion process to ensure that it plays on all devices.
