Hi,

Since this was mentioned in an edit to a post by another member, I wanted to reiterate that this is already an option on your Friend Feed. To edit your privacy options on the friend feed, follow the instructions below.

1. Go to the "Community" tab and select "Friend Feed."
2. Click the "Settings" link to the right of the page title
3. Make your selections and save your changes.

I hope this helps!

--Anne

This should be off by default, or there should be some way to filter it off. It's made the friend feed basically unusable. I don't care if people see my exercises or not; It's not a big deal. However, if I cared what exercises my friends were tracking, and they wanted me to see it, I'd look at their fitness tracker. When someone tracks 10 exercises, I can't see anyone else's updates, and it makes the actual CONTENT hard to find.

Edit: Aha. It can be filtered. Everything's on by default, but you can access here to change what you share, and what you see from others: www.sparkpeople.com/friend_feed_privacy.as

It won't hide what has already hit it, but at least you can stop it in the future.

Thanks so much. I was shocked to find my fitness tracker had become public.

Why the heck can't SP take a little bit more care with our privacy AND notify us of changes to the program? If they can send out emails on various topics you'd think they could send out site updates as well.

Thank you Kanoe! It is done.

When you don't know what you want it's probably time to begin enjoying what you have.

Go to settings for friend feed and click do not want your activities posted. That should clear it. I think they made some changes and got everyone's activities being posted.

To decide on a weight is to decide on the life you want to live.

Dear Spark People,
NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW THAT I DID YOGA TODAY!!
I have to say that I find this reporting on my feed of what I did for exercise, and how long I did it, to be a downright INVASION OF MY PRIVACY.
Please change this. It is my business what I do and no one else's business. I don't care of you think others will find this motivating. If I want to motivate my Spark friends I will write a blog about how much I exercised.
Thank you.
