I am okay with my blog being out there. I don't really blog about anything that is private because I am posting it for all the sparkpeople to see which is already a lot of people. HaHa! I was told anything on the internet is up for grabs.

Today I am healthier than yesterday and tomorrow I will be healthier than today.
I WILL DO THIS!

I have found two very dear friends on facebook that I am really glad I found. Sometimes, though facebook is just really invasive. This is the way I feel. Also, my friend has the right to share her very conservative opinions on my page which I could do without buy I can tolerate it.I think you have a great idea if you aren't on facebook maybe they will never find you. emoticon

Thanks for getting the answer. I'm already nervous about doing a blog, Now I have to worry about it being posted somewhere else. I've done two blogs, the first I just deleted,
I'm not on facebook, maybe that will help.

Thank you!!

I HAVE CONTACTED THE SPARK HELP GROUP CONCERNING THIS SHARE BLOGS THING. THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN REMOVE IT FROM OUR PAGE. ALL WE CAN DO IS BE VERY CAUTIOUS ABOUT WHAT WE POST OR ONLY OPEN YOUR PAGE TO YOUR FRIENDS. THAT WAS THE RECOMMENDATION FROM SPARK - ONLY OPEN YOIUR PAGE TO YOUR FRIENDS. IF YOU FIND THAT SOMETHING YOU WROTE HAS HIT FACEBOOK (WHICH MINE DID), IT THEN HAS TO BE ONE OF YOUR FRIENDS AND NOT A STRANGER THAT MAY JUST NOT HAVE LIKED YOUR BLOG.

The share button is below your blog. It can be clicked to share and gives the person whoever clicks it the ability to share with a number of sources. There doesn't seem to be any way to remove it. As with any site, it is best to be vigilant about what you share because this is a public site and if, like me, you have signed in with your true last name people can find you. This is what I have found out, I am sorry to say. emoticon

Thank you Beth for your response. I think so also. It almost makes me want to close my account but then I would lose contact with some people. I am still considering it. I checked my page once and had over 200+ comments on a picture someone had posted and Miley Cirrus or whatever Flylady's name is that is was so.....funny. I wrote FB and demanded it be taken off. I won't repeat it here since this is a public forum but it was mean. They did take it off but she is posting stuff or should say her staff is posting again. emoticon

I went to my facebook acc't and spark gives a way to contact me here at this site. Fortuanately, I have no stalkers or running from an abusive relationship because Bogener is my last name. T is my first intial and I don't think Spark needs to be this transparent with FB. I am writing spark a letter and letting them know my opinion.

I see the share button it's below where you hit to post. It says you can use e-mail, spark mail or anyother way and it give an addy to follow. I really don't think you can get rid of it. Have you really been successful everyone?

I looked for mine as well and couldn't find a click button on my "Edit Page" that reads share bar. Can someone shed some light on this for us. I went to my page edit and at the top couldn't see a click to un-check and to disable this feature. Need some help.


Thanks.

(By the way, I still have "Spread the Spark" to hundreds - literally- of people. There are certain people I even invite to join and use me as the reference. But I like to CHOOSE who I share my private thoughts with. I know that the whole wide Internet world can read them, all of the anonymous strangers, but it's a little harder to find the way that it is now.)

Emma,

Thank you SO MUCH for sending this out via SparkMail as well! OH MY GOSH. I had noticed the changes, and thought we'd get an announcement. I felt a little uncomfortable with the "like" this on Facebook, but to also have the share feature on Facebook is way too much.

I already "LIKE" SParkPeople on my page, but I don't want every person I know finding me on Spark. I like it to be my private garden. I don't want my page to become someone's fodder for jokes, or ridicule. And there are people in my family that I don't feel safe from, it's one of the things that hinders my weight loss.

So I definitely don't want people to share my blogs on Facebook. (Anyone can do that manually by copying and pasting the link to their Facebook wall, but it's MUCH EASIER with that share bar.) I am so glad we can eliminate that share bar if we wish.

Once again, THANK YOU for pointing out this invaluable information. I probably would've assumed there was nothing I could do and have to make my page private, remove all of my pictures or blogs or something.

Take care!
Jocelyn

This is the first disappointment I have had with Spark.
A few nights ago I saw a neat blog someone had and knew a fellow Sparker that could use it so I sent it to her in an email. I saw the ability to post to FB but never thought about it--I have had things used against me by my own family before--it can hurt.
Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention

This message just came to me from another member

I hope that this information has not already been shared on this team. If not... read on....

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 .......

Everyone smiles in the same language.
