Default album etiquette

when you've posted comments in someone's album and they don't respond...do you get a little upset about it? i mean, if i take the time to compliment, the least you could do is say thanks...

or

is it not the obligation of the album holder to acknowledge your comments?

what do you think?

*i get loads of comments and i always make sure to respond to each one...i feel like if a person visits my album and is kind enough to leave comments, its only natural to say thanks.

I've always wondered about that too. Should I say thanks? I hardly get any comments in my fotki but I do wonder if I should respond - I usually don't b/c I figure the person who commented might not come back to even see my reply. You've got me thinking now...

I say yes. A compliment is a compliment, whether it's said to your face or online. ...But then, I might just be surprised when I get compliments.

But it does seem like the polite thing to do to acknowledge someone's comment. I try to as soon as I see one.

Yahoo doesn't have comment capabilities so I guess I never thought about it. But honestly I wouldn't be bothered at all if I commented in someone's album and they didn't comment back, if nothing else because I probably would have forgotten about it by the time they commented back.

I generally look at a person's album once and once only (unlkess they area a close hair relative). I wouldn't even know if someone had said thanks or not. And the few times I've left comments, I really never even thought about a response or expected it. So they can clutter up their album with a million thank yous? Bah! Don't make it too hard. They're just pictures of hair!

The only time I look at my own fotki is when I'm changing or uploading pix. And then I'm busy cursing at how slow it is or exploding brain cells trying to figure out how to arrange the pix. OK, it's not that hard, it's just not something I want to spend a lot of time on.

So I guess if someone left a comment, I wouldn't even notice? That means I've just discovered a whole new dimension in which I'm being impolite. It's not intentional. Anyone who compliments me on my hair gets a permanent special place in my memory & heart!

I really don't go in my album to see who has looked. The only time I go into it is when I'm updating photos. I just don't have the time to check it daily. I turned off my comments section, because it's much easier then having people get mad, because someone doesn't respond. If you really want to compliment someone send them a PM. That way you know they did see it.

ooh, jazzi! i feel like you're talking directly to me! sorry if i offended anyone by not responding. i do want to say thanks but i often get distracted when i check my album, particularly this summer. when i realize i'm completely behind in my thank you's, i write a general response to all who left a comment. but what i defintely do try hardest to do is answer questions people leave in my albums, because that's what i think is more rude if it goes unacknowledged.

once again, sorry all if i don't say thank you, but i do appreciate everything you guys say!
