Now, I can get rid of the sticky message in my journal! :)


Facebook and Twitter Connect update

We're pleased to announce key changes to the Facebook/Twitter Connection that address your main privacy concerns, as follows:

* We've disabled the ability to cross-post comments on privacy-protected entries and screened comments for non-Cyrillic users. If you've opted into Cyrillic services, you'll still be able to cross-post protected and screened comments. (If you recently opted into Cyrillic services to purchase custom userheads, you can opt out and retain your purchased userheads.)

* If you haven't added your Twitter or Facebook information to your Account Settings, you will not see the cross-posting checkboxes when posting comments. You will still see the checkboxes when posting an entry, but they will be disabled.

* You will no longer see cross-posting checkboxes when you edit a comment.

Thank you, LJ, but you shouldn't have made this an option in the first place! >:E

I think LJ just didn't think things through thoroughly enough when they added the feature and the cries of "HOW DARE YOU PRE-EMPT MY PRIVACY FOR JUMPINGON THE BAND WAGON!" and thus we users of theirs had to be their guinea pigs and point out the obvious flaws that didn't even cross their minds. Thankfully they actually LISTENED. Yay! So long and good riddance you stupid ticky boxes!
