On this software a Private Message (PM) is called a Conversation.
The little envelope on the top right of the screen will take you to your Private Messages/Conversations

When you see a small number beside that, those are the unread PMs/Conversations you have.

(The bell is alerts for comments and likes on your posts)

At the bottom of the box that opens, you will see Show All and Start a Conversation.

When you Start a new Conversations it will open a form to fill out.

Recipient/s
Title
Message

You will use the screen name for the Recipients
Also, at the bottom you will see the Allow anyone to invite others, or Lock Conversation (No responses will be allowed.) That Lock Conversations is really not to be used much as NO ONE will be able to answer you.

Deleting a Conversation (PM) .

There is not a Delete, but there is a LEAVE.

When you click on Leave you can check to allow replies to bring it back to your in area, or block any future replies and you will not see it again.

The STAR is to mark it important to be easier to FILTER and find a particular PM/Conversation.
