Which highlights the issue with this new feature. I was shocked to discover it, and although I appreciate the ease of use factor, what is posted HERE is not intended for Facebook or Twitter. I was here (at Livejournal) FIRST. And this is the hub of my home & my heart. Facebook is fun for photos & family. Twitter is fun for the talking to friends and making random one line comments which wouldn't suit for Liverjournal.
Nothing is cross-posted (bar my trip photos back onto here) and I don't intend anything from here going to social networking sites without my say so (ala links to my Youtube are okay, links to my LJ are not). So in other words... zip it!
This is a privacy issue. DO NOT TICK THOSE LITTLE BOXES TO CROSS-POST OUT!!!! It's an atrocity to most people. Anything you find in my journal that I want known to the outside world will be posted to the outside world (or in an LJ community). Please respect my personal journal's privacy. Thank you.
