I've gone semi-private

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Only my friends can see me on Spark People. For a long time I was frustrated by the number of people on Spark People with impressive statistics and with intriguing names whose pages were set to PRIVATE.

Now I understand.

I found my Spark Blog on-line by googling, in succession, the names of my father, mother, brother, and myself. That's first and last name. While I am not so egotistical as to think that people "google" me, the thought that some distant family members might find out my pages here via a search-engine is dismaying.

The thought that students and colleagues might be able to find me is mortifying.

How I wish that Spark People could make individual pages visible ONLY to the Spark Community!

Happy Valentine's Day to you and to yours!

Still surviving! Many papers to grade.

Feb. 19th: Snowed under with work and details of life. Rather tedious at best.

    Sounds like a good idea.

    I looked for the Share Bar feature so I could delete it, and don't see it in the edit options.

    Oh, and you might want to check this:

    Hey Team!

    There is a new feature on SparkPeople that automatically added a "Share Bar" to our blog entries.

    If you'll notice your own blog now there is a "Share" bar at the top of the blog. That means if someone likes your blog entry they can "share" on their Facebook wall!! That means your blog about losing weight may show up on someone else's facebook wall.

    To delete this "Share bar" feature from your blog do this:

    Go to your SparkPage.
    Click to Edit the page.
    On the top Un-check "Show share bar on my blog posts".
    Save your changes. "
