Cross-posting, I have to admit...

...I'm really impressed with the number of people freaking out about this. You do realize that people have been cross-posting to facebook from LJ ever since facebook connect came out. You just weren't aware of it.

Anyway, nakeisha posted this fix to disable the comment cross-posting.

1. Go to your "Journal" menu, and select "Journal Style".
2. To the right, you'll see what theme you're using, with a link stating "Customize Your Theme". Click that link.
3. Scroll down a little ways, and you'll see that on the left side of your screen, you have multiple options to modify your theme. Click on the "Custom CSS" link, and it should load the options for doing Custom CSS.
4. From here, all you have to do is go to the "Custom Stylesheet", and put in the following line.

.b-repost-item {display:none}

5. Once you have it pasted in there, save changes.
6. Feel free to share this with your flist.

Just thought I'd share.

Of course they have! If you don't want to run the risk of something being shared elsewhere, don't post to the web. What I hadn't realised is that apparently folk can repost flist locked stuff. But again, TBH, I'm sure that's been going on as well by some people.

I have turned it off for now, mainly because I was fed up of the extra buttons. But I can see it could be jolly useful for posting to Twitter at times.

Especially for me since this has gone from my writing journal to my personal blog. I've been reposting to twitter by hand, which is a pain. This has definitely made it easier. Though I have to admit that the reposting comments seems kind of silly to me. I don't understand why someone would want to do that.

It is a pain. I haven't done it much because of the pain and I wouldn't do it for everything, but there are things it'd be so easy to hit a button and have it go to Twitter.

I don't get the comment thing either - I could Tweet this comment - why??????

I believe the freak out comes from not being consult about this new feature plus how LJ worded their explanation of this new feature. Also, not letting folks opt out.

I still don't get why anyone would want to repost their responses to somebody's post or comment on those other sites. Just plain stupid, but then again we seem to be surrounded by the STUPID these days.

Actually, if you keep up with the LJ news and tech journals, they did ask for input. The problem is, imo, that only the tech savy people do that and they (we) are the ones who wanted this feature.

I do read the LJ news, but never saw anything about LJ asking for input on this new feature. It could have been buried amongst all the crap about Frank and Meme, which I find annoying, but that's just me.
