There is a feature on the new navigation bar that allows your friends to share any of your entries, including those that are flocked, in their entirety. The "Share" button opens up a post window with the entire post you'd like to share in the text box. This is not just for public entries, but for flocked ones as well.
For example, I went to a friend's journal (who I know has the navigation bar up), clicked on a flocked post, then went to the navigation bar, clicked share on LJ and a post window opened with the ENTIRE CONTENT OF HER POST IN THE TEXT BOX, all ready for me to hit "post to murphy987".
I, personally, consider this to be a huge violation of my privacy, and while I generally trust most people on my flist, I certainly know that nothing is ever guaranteed. And while I also appreciate that nothing you post on the internet is ever truly "private" the complete disregard LJ is showing for its users with this new feature is appalling.
Unfortunately, at this time, there does not seem to be enough uproar to cause LJ to change their policies. Nor does there appear to be an appropriate place to raise this as a serious issue (although some have begun to point it out
I'm hoping that will change and that LJ will immediately remove this feature, but I'm not holding my breath. Therefore, and while I hate to do this, I will be changing all past entries on my journal to "private" until LJ sorts it's shit out. It's not that I don't trust you all, but the reality is I post sometimes very personal things on my LJ and the idea that someone could go and repost that elsewhere leaves me with a sour taste in my mouth. So this is the best solution for now (better than deleting my journal, which seems a rash decision to make at this time).I realize people may think I'm overreacting to this, and that lots of people don't even have the navigation bar enabled (although that's easy enough for someone to change and if they choose to view my journal in their style with the bar, the share button is there), but I take my privacy very seriously, both in real life and online. I really do hope that I am overreacting and that this situation is resolved quickly, but until then...
Hopefully LJ will resolve this issue quickly and will realize its error, but until then, "LJ, YOU'RE ON MY LIST! AND IT'S NOT A GOOD LIST!"
