  • You can read the links CM gave you but shortly: change your page to private or CM members only, change your widgets, photos and journal posts to be the same. Then you won't have to worry about. CM is as safe as it gets if you use the privacy options appropriately!

  • .You can also use anon when you post in public forums like this one. Public group replies and forums can also be Googled. Cafemom uses the public forums as a way to advertise for new members so that people can look around and get an idea about what goes on at Cafemom. The most important thing is to set your profile to private or to Cafemom members only.
