    Hello,

    I have a few followers that I have no idea who they are and I'd like to remove. Can you please tell me how to do so? I've been using Diigo pretty much since it started and would hate to leave because of privacy issues. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks SO much in advance!

    All the best,
    Rae

    Following should not be a privacy issue.

    Do you have a specific concern, is a follower spamming you?

    I have to agree with Rachel here. As an educator, I keep my profile open so that I can expand my learning network. However, as of today, a completely random hair care person from NYC is following me ...It's creepy. I don't want to go private as it defeats the purpose of collaborative learning. However, I have NO option to quietly disallow this guy from seeing all my "stuff". Is there a different option?

    > quietly disallow

    If you disallow followers … 

    > all my "stuff".

    … then people still see your public descriptions, highlights, stuck notes, floating notes, page comments at http://www.diigo.com/user/Cathyarreguin?tab=9 http://www.diigo.com/network/cathyarreguin?oname=cathyarreguin etc. even without logging in to Diigo.

    In Diigo terminology, I guess that 'friends' are the people who you choose to follow (not vice versa).

    Maybe, review your profile http://www.diigo.com/profile/edit to check that it doesn't reveal more than you wish.

    I agree with Rachel, This is the one and only issue I dislike in Diigo.

    I generally applaud privacy concerns. It would be great if each account could choose which friends _and/or_ followers to expose on their page. The number of followers could be shown, but only those we want to display on our "wall" would be visible to others. Should also build in much more advanced and flexible friends feature here. Example: yet another level of which followers/friends to expose to only selected friends and groups of friends, yet still hidden from public view. I practically do not use the friends "feature" here at all because it far too limiting and not addressing such privacy concerns.

    If spammers are blocked from our system, do you still care about who your followers are? I want to know the concern of majority. We are considering some new measures to prevent spammers effectively such as set up fee like pinborad or make batch import bookmarks to diigo a premium feature. If is done, spammers will be filtered out much more effectively.

    In my opinion, a filter should be available for users. We should be able to choose to allow a follow or not. After all, many persons don't care about it, but some others are concerned about privacy.

    I want to block followers who are obviously spamming or are harvesting business contacts. They are not interested in sharing common-interest links. I don't want to make all my bookmarks private, because the main idea of diigo is to SHARE our bookmarks with people whose interests match our own. But certainly there should be a way to choose who may follow us. It's creepy that we can't!
