This may make me sound a bit archaic, but I prefer talking. I feel like there is so much that could be misunderstood in text and it's less personal.
We love birthdays, when's yours?
Will not be displayed on your profile. (Why do you need my birthday?)
You don’t follow . Sure you want to view this image?
We will never reveal your name to the person you ask.
Even if you hide your name, keeping Formspring fun is still your responsibility.
