Nothing is truly private anymore. We have given up so many freedoms...our expectation of privacy is almost non-existent. We are not asked/told that our information is public and if we want privacy...we have to ask for it...in some cases...it is not an option emoticon

Yes - they are not giving me the option to take that off my blogs either, but the "Share" thing IS still at the bottom of my blogs.

As the previous poster mentioned, I copied and will paste here the excerpt from the bottom of our Sparkpages:"Please choose carefully the information you post, and that you provide to other members on SparkPeople.com. Information in your member page, profile, and message board posts is available to anyone with internet access."

For that reason I dropped out of certain teams because I didn't want the whole world having access to the info that perhaps I had certain "issues" or something.

Other than that I don't post anything that I don't want known.

The feature to share on facebook is not an option on my blog pages, and the fix that was described in an earlier post no longer exists when I edit my spark page. I believe this is no longer an issue,

except for the disclaimer which you should read at the bottom of your sparkpage about how everything here is on the internet, which means it is very public.

You CAN make your spark page private, for friends' eyes only. But message board posts would still be public.

So perhaps we can put our energies to walking. or running for some of you. Maybe next year, running will be for me, too.

An upsideddown flag is also a sign of disrespect, scorn.
Please work to correct what you see as wrong, instead of dissing the flag.
Do you all think we'll have a cold winter? The Orioles are already heading south, and my daughter in Michigan tell me the geese are also heading south. Its so hot now, I can't imagine a cold winter.

Joanne... I did not know that about the flag. I learn something new every day!

As for the Share warning... I can't see the "Show my Share Bar..." option... did they remove it?

Thanks for the warning. I certainly intend to disable that function on my page. If I want to post something on Facebook I shall make that decision for myself.

Can we please leave the personal political views off of these SparkTeam program pages? This is not an appropriate forum for political discussions. It is a walking program. Period. Join a political group for discussing that topic. Thank you for your consideration.

No. I am not Anti-American.

An upside down flag is the universal sign of distress. It has been used in many many wars when a/many soldiers needed help and could not get info to the appropriate places to get it.

I believe this country is in distress. I believe it need help severely. I want what is best for this country. The same thing our Forefathers wanted. Freedom and Liberty from a tyrannical government and for ALL people.

I am writing to Golddustmommy. Her logo is an upside down American flag. Why would someone do that?

Why is your flag upsidedown? Are you anti-American? Just yes or no. No explanations necessary.

That feature should be taken off everyone's page, and only reinstated by choice. I hope I did it correctly and it is no longer on my blogs. Thanks for the warning.

The things we talk about here are perhaps more personal and private than we would share with our "public" friends. My journey to a healthier me is one I share with those who will support me and not those who will not. A link to my blog an be a link to my Sparkpage and that would be more revealing than I would want to share.

I don't post public blogs for personal reasons, but I did disable the feature for principles. Some of my children would not feel as I do, so it is a personal choice.

Thanks for the warning. Yes, things are public here but I don't even have my Facebook page linked to my SP account or use my name here so why would I want others to post my blogs on their Facebook pages?

This info was passed on to me from another team I am 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. "



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.

Have a great night!
