Interesting, I have not heard one person who is pleased with this new feature. I wonder if Spark knows that---or maybe I just travel in a certain "Spark" circle and the larger population loves the idea

Completely agree with you. There should have been notice given that they planned to add this feature. I immediately made this change to "unshare".

Thanks, Lynda, and to the other team leaders who got the message out.

I think it would have been nice if Sparkpeople had given us this information BEFORE they added the feature but I do thank you for telling us - I noticed similar information posted in several of my teams, and I hurried to turn this feature off my own blog toute de suite! I too would like to go on record as "unliking" this feature.

I'm sorry if you've already seen this info or if this isn't a good place to post it but I wanted to let people know about the new feature and how to manage it.

You may have noticed that your own blog now has is a "Share" bar at the top of the blog. That means if someone likes your blog entry they can "share" it on their Facebook wall!! You can read more about this at www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_pu

If you like this new feature, then don't worry about doing anything - if you want to delete this "Share bar" feature from your blog and keep others from sharing your blogs, 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.

I personally do not like the ease with which our words can be shared by others without our permission or even our knowledge but to tell the truth, that's pretty much the way the world is these days, whether we like it or not. It ain't grandma's world any more and we can complain all we want but the best way to deal with it is to be aware of the situation and learn how to take action to change it.

Hope this helps!
