Seriously, LJ?

I, like many others on my flist, am seriously disturbed by LJ's bright idea to link to Facebook and Twitter. There's a reason I don't share my fandom related giddiness (see also: gay porn) on my FB account.

I'm asking everyone who reads my stories and comments on my journal not to link anything to any social networking site. I'm seriously considering friends locking all my posts to ensure some level of privacy.

Major LJ fail right now.

ETA:

"You're probably all aware that Livejournal now allows you to repost comments to Facebook and Twitter. This is a very unpopular new feature. Firefox has an addon that hides the new Facebook / Twitter repost ticky boxes. But here's a little line of code you can use to make it so that no one, no matter what browser they're using, can repost comments.

.b-repost-item {display:none}


Here's what to do:

1. Go to Custom CSS in Customize Journal Style.

2. Copy and paste .b-repost-item {display:none} into the Custom stylesheet box and save changes.

Voila! As you can see the boxes are hidden on the comm now :) (daphnie added note: the text will still be there but the ticky boxes are gone! Basically rendering the ability nul and void)

FYI I did not write this but it was doing the rounds on my f-list and I encourage you to share it."

If I have this right, even if you F-lock, people can still cross post? Or is it only the comments that are able to be cross posted? See *computer illiterate* here wouldn't know how to do the blocking shit that everyone was suggesting.

It would cross post their comment with a link to the original entry to their FB page, but if someone else were to click on it, they'd get the default "not authorized to see this entry" page.

My big thing is I don't want FB peeps to even KNOW I have an LJ, whether they're authorized or not.

Hmmm, I see. Sort of.

It's only the comments that are cross posted, but if someone leaves feedback or something and cuts and pastes part of what you say, that would be there.

The blocking is actually pretty easy. I'd be happy to try to walk you through it if you'd like. It works which is very good.

The hardest thing to find is the custom CSS button. If you go to your home page then account settings.

Click on customize journal style.

On my journal, on the far left it says custom CSS. Then you copy and paste that text above and drop it in the Custom external stylesheet. It sounds more complex than it is.

Let me know if you can't find anything, and good luck!

I think I fixed it, thanks.

Though there are still the Facebook & Twitter tickybox choices on this comment box under my user name, and at the very bottom of the 'Post Comment' page of my own LJ. I can ignore live with that.

The ticky boxes will be there, but they shouldn't be click-able. If you can click them, we should revisit it. :) If you can't, we're good!

Let's hope LJ makes a permanent opt out option.
