If you click on the purple "Who's Online" button.....

Post  milo on Wed 20 Apr 2011, 9:53 pm

If you click on the "Who's Online" button it shows you a map of the world with a button that shows where folks are in the world. It's kinda cool.

Well yes, cool, but not necessarily for those of us who crave anonymity. If you go in to your profile, if you are like me, you can "hide" your status and then it won't show up anymore. So you can have it both ways.

Yeah, I didn't realize that it zooms right in....but I have noticed that it's not where you are...mine has never been correct, so I assume it's where the server is based that shows.

It could be kind bad. Sad What do you guys think? I'm sure I coudl disable it.

I personally do not like it. But for the sake of other people if you could just let me know how to hide mine I am good with that.

Thanks

I think I may just go ahead and inactivate it. Seems a tad bit close to too much info.

Really, was it that bad?
Did I miss something?

Because all I saw was a big red balloon showing that I am somewhere in Canada on the West Coast.

Under my name it says 'BC Canada' anyway, so what's the harm?

Risa Sweetie,

You notice I don't have any location listed...cause I'm a real weinie when it comes to privacy. And my arrow was uncomfortably close to me. When we have folks like "she who must not be named" around, I don't want anyone even having a remote chance of figuring out where or who I am.

For those who want to know how to hide your online status, go to Profile, then Preferences, the toggle the button that says Hide my online status. Piece of cake.

Risa, when it was active, you could actually zoom all the way in to the street. Yes, they are not generally your actual street, but as Char said, it is alarmingly close.

I like the feature, but I would prefer it be one that you agree to, as opposed to one that you are automatically on and then need to block. I think we all value our privacy too much to keep it up involuntarily.
