I wrote about my experience with Shoebox, a photo scanning and sharing program for the Apple iPhone, last week at http://goo.gl/NjPL9. I mentioned, "Please keep in mind that everything you upload is visible to everyone on the Internet. I would not upload pictures of other people without their permission and I would suggest you always be sensitive the the privacy concerns of others. In my mind, that is simple 'Internet etiquette' that applies to all web sites, not just to 1000Memories.com."
Today, I received a note from the folks at 1000Memories:
"I saw there was lots of discussion about privacy on your post and thought you might be interested in an update. In response to feedback from users, we have added additional privacy settings at the content level. For example, users now have the option to choose either public or private (only shared with a users' followers) settings for individual pieces of content and/or for a person. We hope that this goes a long way to address users' concerns about their control over privacy on 1000memories."
Great idea! I am also impressed at the speed of adding the new feature.
