Under the "Settings" tab in your account, there is a link at the top that says "Privacy". Select it and you can determine who can see what information from your profile. (If you look at your own profile, however, it will show you everything, because you are you!)

If you want to double-check your settings, you can ask another member who you trust to look at your page and verify that your page is not showing info you're concerned about. Your tour guide or someone on your buddy list would be a good option.

Hope this helps!

Dana, you can decide what people can and cannot see in your account settings.

Read the Help Center under What's New > New Features; the new privacy settings are  explained there.

Dana when I look at your profile I see your nickname, age, city/state, and your About Me statement.  nothing else personal.

Actually, I learned earlier that you can check for yourself.  Just log out, and then go the Member Directory.  Look yourself up and you'll see your profile the way others do.  Hope that helps!
