LADIES THIS IS SERIOUS!!! IMPORTANT PLEASE READ!!!

Okay ladies i didn't realize this until now...but google your cafemom screen name!!! If your profile is not set to PRIVATE then EVERYTHING you post or reply on cafemom people will be able to google!!! I'm talking pictures, thought bubbles, maybe a rant or vent you have had and needed to get out! Or maybe its a secret you don't feel comfortable talking about irl...well guess what YOU CAN BE GOOGLED and all it takes is a busy body to google your screen name!!!



I am posting this because i want you to be aware!!! Please make your profiles private!!!

Everything you post is public. Even if your profile is private your posts arent. Unless they make cafemom viewable to only members,everything you post will turn up on google. Im surprised ppl dont know this.
