Sharing our blogs on Facebook and Twitter
Sunday, January 15, 2012
On January 14, SP_Staff issued a blog on a new feature that allowed articles etc to be sent to Facebook and Twitter. They automatically added the feature that any blog written by myself or you could be shared by the reader of my blog by clicking on send it to Facebook.
One of the great features of SparkPeople was the blogs, so many people have benefited by this great idea and we all know that some blogs disclose personal information that we assumed were only for Spark members eyes.
Most of the blogs I have written would not disclose any information that I would consider private, but there are things I have written, that I don't feel the world needs to know.
As of right now any blog you write , will have a screen pop up that allows you as the reader to send it on. We were not given the choice of wanting this or not, but Spark has given us a option where we can opt out, the next part of this blog was copied from the Spark blog and shows how to opt out.
"Note that we also have provided the option to hide this sharing bar on your posts. To do this you can edit your SparkPage and uncheck the "Show share bar on my blog posts" option on the upper right of the page."
My reason for writing this is that not everyone will read the blog announcing the change.
I want to make a statement again, that SparkPeople is a blessing for many of us, has helped us on our journeys to healthy living and has been such a asset to my own journey. I am so glad that I found SparkPeople and has helped me in so many ways in my life
