This week we’re dealing with the sensitive fine art of privacy. The age of social networking created new challenges and questions regarding what remains your own private affair, and what is in the public domain.
Take our site for example. On one hand, you want to share your choices, reviews and questions. You want to help others in making wise purchase decisions, and get their two cents regarding yours.
On the other hand, you don’t want everyone knowing everything all the time. You want to stay in control.
So we upgraded our privacy settings to let you do just that. Now you can choose who can follow you and see your information – everyone, or just the people you chose to approve. You can see who requested permission to follow you, and check out their profile before deciding. And if you made a mistake and changed your mind – you can always block a user you’re not sure of from following you.
We’ve got some big surprises coming. We can’t say more than that – only that you really should check out the site next week.
