Thanks for posting this Linda, I opted out too, as soon as I saw the first blogs about it....I really don't want my blogs on FB either, and agree, SP should have let us opt in, rather than have to opt out, and why the ambush? No warning, or announcement of it coming, just there it was!

Thanks Lynda. I opted out yesterday as thankfully this is all over the teams. BUT, I think this is a bad bad move on part of SP. (Facebook is EVIL!) Never received notification about the SP blog either.
When everything feels like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top.
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!
