Here are comments from Dave H, on the Spark Staff blog this morning:
A few days ago we launched a new feature where we added buttons to share member blogs to Facebook and Twitter, with the option to opt-out of having this on your blog posts. We received feedback from members that they were not comfortable with how we implemented this feature, so this morning we removed the feature and option from the site.
We definitely appreciate all the feedback and support our members provide to SparkPeople. If you've been a member for a while you've hopefully noticed we are constantly making enhancements and upgrades to the site to help everyone better reach their goals!
If you haven't noticed it yet, view one of your blog posts. There is a new Facebook 'Like' button option on your blog posts. If you don't want your Spark blogs to cross over to Facebook feeds when someone "Likes" them here the option to turn this off:
Go to your SparkPage, and click the "Edit my SparkPage" button.
In the page that opens, there is a large white area at the top. Look at the topics that can be checked or unchecked in the right of that white area. Take the check mark out of the item that states "Show share bar on my blog posts."
Make sure you also click the button that says "Save my Changes".
