The official Google Talk plug-in no longer allows people to become invisible, so I started using Pidgin. Now it seems that Pidgin no longer allows people to remain invisible either. I’ve set my status to “invisible” on Google Plus and on Pidgin, but it still says that I am visible:
Does anyone know how to fix this problem? If Google is phasing out invisibility on Google Talk, I’m going to stop logging in at all and just use my own jabber server. Not having invisibility mode might sound like a good idea to people who just have a few connections, but now Google is connecting people with thousands of strangers (through Google+), and things are getting out of control. I can’t handle the information overload.
If someone knows how to fix this problem, please leave a comment below.
