New Member Privacy Level

+2 votes
I just joined and imported over 600 people from my Ancestry Tree. I want to share with the rest of the community, but not sure how much to share.

What level of Privacy is recommended to get the most interest and input without leaving me too wide open?

Hi David,

To keep in spirit with the whole 'Wiki'-idea I suggest you keep everything as open as possible, within the limits of privacy offcourse.

The default for profiles of non-living people under 200 years old is 'Public', unless they are added as the nuclear relative of a living person.

Anyone can view the information on a Public profile. However, even though anyone can view a Public profile you still need to be in the Trusted List to add or change information.

You can find more information on Privacy here.
