So Why Do I Feel So Exposed?

Saturday, February 27, 2010

Google your Spark name and find out. I have stripped my page of all PII and do not plan to reenter it as apparently Spark does not feel that this is important. It is a shame as the original concept was such a good one and much purer. Now it is all about ads, marketing and not really looking at who puts what up on the boards and who is going in and manipulating things belonging to others. They say it happens on all social web sites. I beg to differ. Maybe in the future I won't even show up but for now I still get a lot of strength and support for some of the groups and particularly with some of the groupies who I now consider my friends.

    Boy, that was an eye opener. Still, I have always tried to remain aware that what I post is in fact public. That said, I'm sure glad that my screen name is not that close to my real name.

    I use Firefox as a web browser, so I don't see the advertisements.
I wish that SparkPeople kept the pages private. I limit my page/blogs/posts because of their policy.

I do think SparkPeople is worth sticking with. The community here is what makes this place special. The calculators and information are great, but it's the wonderful people who keep me coming back.
