Why would I need a chat with myself and how do I create one?

Such chats are useful as a place to keep notes. There, you can store interesting content and links to posts that you don't want to share publicly.

To create a chat with yourself, all you have to do is find your own page in the friend list of one of your friends (vk.com/friends) and click Write message near your profile photo.

After doing so, youĺll always be able to find this chat in the Messages section.
Your search for returned no results.
Try using other keywords, e.g.: "delete profile", "create chat".
Check your request for misprints.
