Thanks SP for removing that!!!! I am not a big fan of FB and get sick & tired of so much being linked to that medium.

I have a feeling they know how people feel. You will note that the announcement only came out after quite a few teams already posted the warning!

I posted a blog that I copied from MichiganLori, and also left a message on the Spark Staff page as SunnyGirl suggested.

If ENOUGH of us speak out (only 28 people had left a comment on the Spark Staff blog as of a few minutes ago) MAYBE they will take it off! Who knows? Just like Verizon backed down when thousands protested the $2 fee to pay their bills online!

Do you think we can make mobilize the Spark Community?

I suggest you copy Krys's posting below and create your OWN blog entry to alert the people in your circle of friends! AND let the Spark staff know your feelings as well.

I hate the idea of my personal struggles being broadcast all over Facebook.

Here's the link to the blog announcing the "Sharing Feature"

Thanks Krys!

I did it earlier but didn't realize the ramifications until reading your explanation.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention Krys. I don't mind sharing with the SparkPeople community but Facebook is another story!

Thanks for this info. I got this message from another Sparker early this morning and took care of it right away. I agree, a bad idea for Sparkpeople to add this feature.

thanks Krys, I got this notice from the Slowest Losers team also and went and took care of it right off this morning. I don't mind sharing my journey with the SparkPeople community but NOT Facebook. We get privacy issues at my work and I sure don't want anything I chose to blog about being misinterrupted and used wrongly and viewed from my work or potential credit agencies.

Wow! Thanks for the heads up. Making the share option automatically without alerting the members was a very bad idea.

"This information came to me from another member
Through another blog I just learned of a new feature on SparkPeople that automatically added a "Share Bar" to our blog entries. I, personally, do not like this feature.

If you'll notice on 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!! Who wants his/her blog about losing weight to 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 (in the white box area) un-check "Show share bar on my blog posts".
Save your changes. "

Personally,I do not want anything I write to show up on someones Facebook wall. Just passing along the info in case anyone wants it.
