New Like/Share Links in Posts
 
When did those links appear? And what purpose do they serve? I let my mouse hover one of them ("Share") and it popped up with share this comment. If someone clicks on that link they can share my comments anywhere?

The "share" thing is what I don't like. "What happens in Vegas, STAYS in Vegas" - my posts shouldn't be allowed to be shared over the internet at someone else's whim, IMO. I'd like that option to just GO AWAY.

LIKING a post is another thing completely. I actually think that's a useful option. Instead of having to create a post that just says " + one" which I've done before, clicking the "like" button will allow you to agree with that person without having to create a new post saying so.

I agree!

We've had social media sharing buttons there for a long time, actually! :) We just changed the design of them to make them text links sted icons.

I can understand the concerns about the share, and I will take your concerns to the team asap.

The "like" thing is cool, isn't it? :)

Is it possible to change the privacy settings for the "share" thing?

Gretchen 08-18-2011 08:19 AM

Maria, we're looking into options right now. :)

YES, please!!! I would like the option to opt out of the "share" option. It's kinda creepy.

The "like" thing is okay. No objection to it, but I'm not convinced of its value on the forum.

I no longer see the share button so maybe it's been removed. I don't worry much about online things. I have loads of pics, I do loads of shopping, I use credit cards, etc online. But I wasn't all that keen on the sharing business.

Gretchen 08-18-2011 01:05 PM

Yes, we removed the share thing.

Thanks for your feedback, everyone.

Hope you like the "like" button!

Im getting notifications when someone likes a post, however when you click on the notification it takes you to your profile. It doesnt let you know what post was liked.

Is that normal?

jeepcurlygurl 08-24-2011 11:33 AM

That's how it seems to be working for everyone at this point. Not real useful, but that could change.

Gretchen 08-25-2011 10:41 AM

Will someone please forward me one of the "like" notifications? Is it an email or a PM?

My email is gretchen@naturallycurly.com

jeepcurlygurl 08-25-2011 12:48 PM

I've never had a notification sent via email or otherwise. I only see it at the upper right of my page where it lists my name, when I last visited, and then notifications.

KurlyPrincess 08-25-2011 01:16 PM

^ yeah, but then when you click on the thing that says someone liked your post it takes you back to your profile page.

maria_i 03-14-2012 11:44 AM

The "share" is back.:sad:

Gretchen 03-15-2012 08:12 AM

It was back for a while, but now it's gone again. I'm not sure what they're doing over there in techland.

jeepcurlygurl 03-15-2012 11:18 AM

I don't even understand the whole 'share' thing so was hoping I wouldn't accidently click on it and set the whole interwebs on fire. : )

Gretchen 03-16-2012 07:38 AM

Ha! Nothing to worry about, Jeep.

maria_i 06-22-2012 01:38 PM

And back again :(

Gretchen 06-22-2012 04:00 PM

OH, goodness. Let me see if I can figure out what's going on.
