I don't want my address, phone #, etc public on this site.  I don't see in the Settings where you control who sees that information.  Is it automatically private?  TIA!

I looked at your profile and the information is private.

To find them, they're under Settings and then Privacy Control.

Edited because I checked. :)

Amee - thanks!!   I think I may have figured out where to find it (but I doubt I'll ever be able to find it again!)  Thanks for checking for me!

I have mine set to private too, but if you PM someone or friend someone, they automatically see your first name and last initial.

It is confusing as you can see the data on your own My Accounts page.  (We used to be able to review the public settings.)

I'm pretty sure they default to private.  Because mine are private and I never set it that way.  It makes sense to have the default that way.

It is very confusing the way they have it. You click view your profile and all the info you want private shows up, no matter what you set it at. It confused and worried me when I first started here. I really wish they would make it to let us view our actual public profile, the way everyone else see's it. It would be a lot less worrisome.
