Bad news guys. Coach Nancy said that it is not an option to not share blogs. She did say she would pass my feedback back to the spark team but I am only one person so if you guys aren't happy with the option, you are going to have to say something as well.

I do think we should be notified of things like this. It's not right to share someone's personal thoughts unless you have their permission. I know blogs aren't exactly private but the reason we share them here is because a lot of us understand each other and pass no judgment.

On the other hand, I think it is flattering if someone is inspired enough by your blog to want to share it or even thinks it's worth sharing for any reason.

Still, I want be opt out of allowing others to share my blogs but I can't find that option when I went to edit my page. I looked and there was no section like! :O

Thanks for letting us know!!

Is that choice still supposed to be there? I looked this morning and can't find that statement under "edit" at the top. That "share" icon is still on all my blog posts, though.

Thanks for the tip, I certainly don't want my blogs posted without my permission.

Thank you for the heads up Sheila. I agree with you. I want to have that control, not have someone else have it.

Hi,
I just wanted to share some info I received from a leader of another team I'm on:

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 do not like this feature.

If you'll notice 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 Un-check "Show share bar on my blog posts".
Save your changes.

This is apparently a new feature of SparkPeople that I was not aware of. I have unchecked this feature as I do not want my blogs shared by others. It's different if I want to share my own blog but .......

Personally, I don't want my information shared unless I want to share it -
