Are YOU Blocked on Google Gtalk? Here’s how to find out!Apr 15
Ever run into a character-building challenge with your friends…and all of a sudden, they disappear off of Gtalk so you cannot communicate with them?
Ever wonder if, by chance, they've simply blocked you on Gtalk instead?
Well then, wonder no more! Here's how to find out.
Step 1.) Download Pidgin Universal Instant Messenger.
It's an open source universal Instant Messenger. You can download it by clicking on the logo above.
Step 2.) Add your Gtalk information.
When you first start Pidgin, you'll be prompted to add an account. And you're not only limited to Gtalk, mind you – lookie below at 'em all! You're going to want to select "Google Talk".
Step 3.) Look at your contact list popup.
You should seem something like:
Step 4.) Right-click over someone you know has NOT blocked you.
At the very least, you'll see their name and possibly their contact info like so:
Step 5.) Right-click over the person you think might be blocking you.
If the person is blocking you, you will NOT see a name, nor an avatar…you'll only see the status like so.
If you do not see a name or a picture, chances are…you've been blocked.
Now, what's really funny for me is that the person who is blocking me…I had created a special gtalk account for said person just so I'd be available whenever I was needed.
Obviously, as I'm now blocked…I'm not needed.
Ah well, these things happen. Live and learn.
Anywhos, should you be wondering just what's going on with your contacts online, the above should give you more of a sense of, is the person REALLY off-line, or just doesn't want to talk with you.
You can never control how others act….but you can always choose to control how you react.
