Facebook and Tweet buttons on SP

Sunday, January 15, 2012

Nothing you write on the internet is private. Any one can copy and paste and spread it around. That doesn't mean we always want to encourage that or make it happen without people really thinking about it.

On your blogs there are now buttons where anyone who reads your blog can share it on Facebook or Tweet it. You'll never know about it.

If you want to remove that option from your blogs, click EDIT MY SPARK PAGE and uncheck the box at the right that says - "Show share bar on my blog posts." Then scroll all the way down to the bottom and click SAVE. The share buttons should be gone.

Then, at the bottom of your blog, you may also see a different SHARE THIS POST WITH OTHERS button. I did. Click on it and you get MANY ways to spread the blog around. There is an OPT OUT there too, which gives you a long message about privacy and you can OPT OUT of that sharing on that same page. (Opt out doesn't seem to stop sharing, though. I tried it.)

You will also find these share buttons on the top of every TEAM PAGE, including a Private Team. I have yet to find a way to remove those. As leader of a private team, I tried EDIT THIS TEAM but there is no opt out box there.

If anyone knows how to REMOVE THE SHARE BUTTONS AT THE TOP OF THE TEAM PAGE, please let me know.
