Somebody Calm Me Down!

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

emoticon Tonight I found my SparkPage on the internet. Needless to say, I was really upset. I immediately changed my settings so my page can only be seen by the SparkFriends I have added. Sadly, I have invited other Sparkers to stop by my page - but now it has to be private. My apologies.

Fixed, ya think? Nope! I realized by digging further tonight, that every message board post I make seems public on the web, and it says I have selected Secrets of Success going back for several years - before I even joined the site! Every blog I have written shows up by title and opening statements.

I know that somewhere on this site I vaguely remember seeing something about this very topic, so perhaps I should have been more careful. But at this point, I am in a panic!
I can be very open when I CHOOSE to be. But I am fiercely private, and I do not trust people easily ! This revelation has me ready to bolt!

HELP! Any info out there to medicate my hysteria? emoticon

    Since the posts are only "findable" by name and opening statement at this point, I wouldn't worry too much. Seems like a pretty big stretch that someone would find you personally that way.

I recently shared a story on Facebook in my blog and was amazed to see that the page was showing my link the next day. I don't really know how it happened, but since it didn't tie back to the real "me" on Facebook, I decided not to worry about it.

    Don't worry about it! There is nothing horrifying about your postings. Unless you are in Witness Protection Program, I wouldn't sweat it. Now.... I am off to see if I can find mine.. emoticon
