So far I like the new changes but what happened to the public profile tab?I used this to test my privacy settings. How do we view our public profile now?

Could someone please look at my profile and let me know if my address and phone number is still showing?? It was at the bottom of the "about me" section.

Hi, Lacie, I do not see this information on your profile. The new privacy settings have drop downs (similar to Facebook) that designate who can see this information. For instance, in my own profile, I can see my address, etc. but the setting states "only me". Check my profile and you will see what I mean.

Thanks Kathy! =)

I had a friend tell me she could see my info so I went to check the settings and everything was set right. I don't know what happened. \(_o)/
I reset them but had no way to check it. Must have just been a glitch or something.

Yes, I too am hoping a preview page is in our future!

Did you look at my profile? You should only be able to see my name and city/state-no addy or phone #.

They put in a way for us to control that on the privacy settings page:

It under Personal and Contact Information.

June, does the city and state show up underneath my "About Me" ego trip (I really need to shorten that).
