More on the Spark Feed...
Saturday, December 24, 2011
When did our Activity Feed become a Friend Feed and WHY? I noticed a change a while back, but thought that it was just a glitch that had happened when Spark was updating the site. By now I am coming to the realization that it isn't a glitch. I am not sure what it is, but it is very annoying.
I thought that by unchecking the "Show My Activity Feed on my SparkPage", that my activity ("Friend") feed would revert back to the status that anybody who cared to view it, could. I tried the theory out at work by going to my Spark page as a stranger and, lo and behold, my Feed is still labeled as "Private"!!
Now, I follow quite a few member's blogs, but don't necessarily "Friend" those people. I like to look at their feeds and comment on them (or at least "Like" them), but I don't automatically "Friend" everyone whose blog I subscribe to. I have no problem with those who do, I just prefer not to. Now it seems that I MUST "Friend" anybody whose feeds I want to follow...
My reaction will probably be to do less Sparking.
Now that I've vented, I want to wish everybody who happens by this blog a very Merry Christmas, and a wonderful year ahead.
