With the forum update, we now have a totally new badass "What's New" page that lets members see updates from all across the forums. 8D These same updates also appear in people's profiles of places they've been participating along with where their friends are posting! Unfortunately, some people don't like all their biz hanging out. If you are one of those people, there are Profile Privacy Settings. Like the many other items in your profile, you can restrict who views it. And before you get wigged out, all private and permission blocked areas don't show up for people unless they have permission to view it. XD So no need to worry about private groups or forums. In the next couple of weeks, we should hopefully have even more much better controls for setting what you want viewable and what you don't. We'll post updates when we get them!
