So I'm sure that everyone's noticed the little facebook & twitter boxes at the bottom of comments & when you're posting a new entry... And I really didn't think much of it until I read that this means that people can repost their comments on your locked entries and link your journal that way to their facebook/twitter.

I don't know about you guys, but I do not want my LJ and FB to ever be connected. I have 2 RL friends on LJ (& one more friend knows about my account), but I trust them to not tell all 500+ of my real life contacts on facebook that I read slash fanfiction about members of Asian boybands.

I'm not saying that I don't trust you guys, but it is really easy to accidentally click on of those little boxes.

You can find out more about this cross-posting issue here. Please spread the word & vote "NOOO I HATE YOU LJ STOP" on these polls: one & two.

Thank you ♥

there seems to be a way to get rid of it on firefox/greasemonkey here. i haven't installed it yet, but it seems to be working for people.

this is such a stupid idea, especially now that people can intentionally/accidentally link to flocked posts. dnw ever.

thanks for this post. i will go fill out those polls now. :D

But doesn't that only get rid of it for yourself? Like someone on your f-list could still accidentally repost a comment they leave on one of your locked posts... It would work if everyone installs that, but... yeah :|

Seriously, what was LJ thinking. People can copy paste parts of their comments that they think are so amazing that they need to repost it on their own.

Yay :D

yeah, it only works for you, but if everyone is worried about it and installs it, it might be the only way to stop it for now. but hopefully lj can fix it before we all have to do that. :\

ikr. if i wanted people to know about my lj, i'd tell them myself.

I am still wtfing now, really. I can't believe they would do something like that, but not even aloowing a stupid disable option! I'm using the firefox add on (and I don't have FB anyway), but the thought that someone could podt my locked post somewhere by accident fills me with rage.

I hope they get the message this time. :|

I don't think they can repost your entire locked entry, but just their comment on it. Which is still stupid. And bad because it would link your journal... I have former teachers and everyone from high school, middle school, even elementary school on facebook and I do not want them to be linked to my LJ. Even if half my posts are public, I lock everything with my name & school...

If I forget to lock it and then edit it, FB and Twitter user can see it anyway thanks to the link on the comment, from what I can understand. And I really rather not. I'm a privacy paranoid and I really like having things SEPARATED and PRIVATE, and not have to worry about someone accidentally hit buttons all the freaking time or having to deal with random spam from bored people D:

If Dreamwidth wasn't so expensive and had JE stuff, I'd be already there.

D: I didn't know they could repost comments to LOCKED entries. there is a reason why my most of the RL don't know about my lj and any link to my journal through facebook is a DNW for me.

going to go vote on those polls~

Seriously, wtf was their logic behind this! D: They even said:
We share your concerns. Most of us would not want to publish our LiveJournal usernames or FO comments to Facebook or Twitter either (to the extent we even use them).

Yay \o/

Was going to mention about the greasemonkey code, but seems I was beaten to it :D But yeah, even though it's only a temporary solution and shouldn't even be necessary (side eyeing you so hard right now, lj) the more people that install it, the better :(

I don't have any angry icons, but I think Hades expresses my emotions quite well here >:( Even photobucket have jumped on the OMG I HEART FACEBOOK!!!11! fuckery bandwagon. Dnw want my gifs all over fb, thanks >:|

But I'm so used to Chrome nowww. :|

Hahaha I saved the gif. I really don't get why people think that everything on the internet should be connected to Facebook. I use FB to stalk contact people, that's it. I don't ever want to ~share my feelings~ with practically everyone in my high school D:

Someone mentioned chrome in the thread on the news comm, I think. Maybe you could have a look and see if there's any kind of similar system that'll work for you? :(

Same :( The only reason I even got an FB was because all my rl friends had them and it's my primary way of contacting them :( DNW old school teachers and distant relatives knowing my ~feelings~ :|

omfg, my initial reaction: "wait, why are people on news_jpop discussing this?" -___-
thanks, I disabled it~ :D

my LJ and FB to ever be connected
Eh could this happen without your consent? Unless you (or one of your rl friends on lj mentions your name in crossposted comment) accidentally crosspost I guess ...

I stopped being automatically logged in to FB ages ago because of random sites prompting me to link my fb account. Damn them. :/ I don't see the point of linking up everything, if I wanted to link all my social media platforms, I'd do it myself.

Well, if someone says something in a comment on a public post, I'd just screen it haha. I don't like this crossposting thing though. By 'connected' I just mean that I don't want my RL contacts on facebook to get a link to my LJ. It's possible since a few of my LJ friends live nearby and are going to UCs and all haha...

This so much. Maybe they think taht they're making things easier for us... -_-

Geez, I didn't even know that the option did that! Thanks for pointing it out! Seriously, I hate how everything is getting connected to Facebook these days. Ugh.

Yeah, I don't get why people are trying to integrate everything with facebook. It's so unnecessary. Honestly, facebook is now more like an address book to me xD

I agree with you. I have no idea why people would want to connect FB to LJ DDDDDDDDDDDD:

Voted on the polls! Thanks for the links~

OMG, me too BB. D8 I don't want my LJ to crash with FB. I mean, in LJ I think I don't have RL friends. There are RL fangirls I met before, but still. NOOO. Worst idea. Since, its a DNW for me. I voted. ♥
