I was on the general health forum a while back and I hit the "like" button without realizing it. Imagine my discomfort when I got a phonecall asking me why I posted about a vaginal infection to my fb page!!  Just stear clear of icons!!

Mistakenly done or not the medhelp moderators need to REMOVE that icon.  It's too easy to make a mistake a click on something.

We're supposed to be protected here.  Not cool.  NOT cool at all.

Hi ~

We understand your concerns and certainly understand that you want to be especially cautious about with whom you share sensitive personal information.  The Facebook "Like" button was added to MedHelp at the request of users to allow people to integrate their experience as they choose.  Use of it is purely optional, and nothing will be shared on your Facebook page unless you click the button.  Please remember, however, that the MedHelp site is a publicly available internet site; as members get to know one another it's easy to feel like posts are private conversations among friends.  While we're always pleased to know that our members are fining support and encouragement on our site, please remember that information you post here is visible to anyone from the general public.

If you have any questions or suggestions please let us know!

The moderator's comment is exactly the reason why I changed my profile information. If you hold the mouse over someone's screen name it gives some of that info. I took off my hometown. I didn't want anyone putting two and two together. FB has gotten outa hand with less and less user control over much anymore. Even if it doesn't say LIKE still be carefull of the thumbs up symbol. That too is a link to FB.

This scares my to death. I came hear to be able to not just get good information but also be able to vent and not feel judged.

i have been thinking about doing that as well..and now after reading this thread again i have taken off some info as well...because not only friends or members of medhelp can see it.....every and anyone who passes along this forum can view your profile.
