Messaging Followers

Hi, I've been away from Duo for over a year. It seems to me that I used to be able to message my Followers. This part of Duo seems to have disappeared. Am I right or am I just not looking in the right place? Thanks for whatever help you can give.

Many of us are frustrated by last year's removal of the Activity site. I found it to be innovative and very helpful. Unfortunately it was abused by trolls and others holding non-language-related discussions. I've learned so much from native speakers who would post corrections in my stream, and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank them. Also, thanks to the many followers with whom I can no longer communicate. Hopefully, Duolingo will find a way to restore this good feature.

You are right. I joined Duolingo in May 2017, and already then it wasn't possible to message anyone. The forums are the means of communication.

From memory they removed Activity in April 2017. It was terrible for those of us who had formed good friendships with people thousands of kilometres away.

Sadly I was told the same thing( that we were able to communicate with people we followed) but I never got to use the feature bc I never knew!
