My Biography is Coming Soon... I'll get to writing here soon, I hope, but for now, just my photo, instead of as my profile picture because I want to share some of my poems from Poetry Soup and I don't want my photo in every one of them. I am not one who likes my picture spread all over the Internet.

Update 2018-04-01: My photo is still being included when I share one of my poems, so for now, at least, I'm removing my photo from here as well.

Okay, so I've been to the forum and I see that questions aren't too often answered there. So, I'm wondering, when you have a question or two, as I do, how/where can I hope to have them answered? For now I'll start with a/this blog entry...

I would like to share some of my poems to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. but WITHOUT my "former" avatar image, which 'was' a photo of me. When I shared one of my poems to Facebook, in the window where you add text (if you want before you hit the share button on the bottom), it showed no image being shared with the poem/link. But when it landed on Facebook, there to my dismay, was my picture with the poem! 

So, then I decided to change my avatar to something other than a photo of me. Tried the share feature again and still, when it landed on Facebook, there again was 'my photo', instaed of the new avatar I had changed my avatar to! 

Then I thought, maybe I didn't wait long enough to let the new avatar image get fixed yet as my avatar. But I just tried it again and this time in the pre-share window, my new avatar image appeared, when no image had before, but yet again, when it appeared on Facebook, there was 'my photo' image again! :(

So, I decided to remove ALL avatar photos, only to discover there is no option to have 'no photo'. Conclusion: I guess I won't be sharing any of my poems, if my mug always has to be included. *disappointed*

I can ask the Poetry Soup staff, but I don't like to bother them with every little question I may have. I'm hoping my questions can be answered without having to trouble them.

I understand that logic. I am disappointed none of us answered you here though... again I apologize. But you do have a very valid concern. If you decide to I think you're very justified in asking TPS about the glitch Artsie.

Artsieladie I am so very sorry you haven't received an answer. This is a new one to me as I do not post on Facebook. But this is something that I think they should know about; so please don't hold yourself back from emailing and asking them why it is showing pictures that you have removed from poetrysoup.

Thanks for your response and advice, Shadow of the Past. Much appreciated. Actually, I didn't bother to ask a question in the forum because I saw few are ever replied to. This is why I opted to make a blog entry, instead. But I guess I'll have to ask them. :-p ~ Artsie
