|We've got important updates for you this week. As promised, we've made significant changes to Facebook and Twitter Connect integration that respond to your privacy concerns. We're also saying goodbye to an old friend (TxtLJ) and introducing a community moderation enhancement. There's a lot of ground to cover today, so let's get started!|
Facebook and Twitter Connect update
|We're pleased to announce key changes to the Facebook/Twitter Connection that address your main privacy concerns, as follows:
We've also enhanced the cross-posting feature so you can choose the image that will appear as the thumbnail image on a cross-posted Facebook update. To select an image, click the "Choose a pic" link when you cross-post your entry or your comment to Facebook. If you are cross-posting an entry you are writing, you can select any image that appears within the entry or the userpic you've selected to use. If you are cross-posting a comment, you can only select the userpic you've selected for the comment -- you cannot select images that appear in the entry itself.
Community rejection enhancement
If you're a community maintainer, you can now offer an explanation and/or further instructions whenever you reject a user who requests to join your community (similar to when you reject an entry submitted to a community). Just type in your explanation in the text box before you hit the "Reject" button.
Farewell to TxtLJ
We've discontinued the TxTLJ feature, as the cost of maintaining the service was too high in relation to current usage. We know some of you relied upon this feature for posting, notifications, and more, so we've compiled a list of ways you can accomplish most of the same tasks without it:
Did we miss something? We hope you'll let us know in comments.
Other important stuff to know

Thank you so much for joining us. We'll return next week with the header design winner and more fun and gifts with Frank.
