Google + have all my u2u's


just joined google + as my brother in australia asked me to ,so we could keep in touch,so I thought I'd set up a highland pony group.I thought i would kick it off with a discussion about your highland ponies past and present when a list of my posts and u2u's came up.I can understand about the posts but we have private info in the u2us such as phone nos and addresses.this is a worry,and will make me more careful as to what I put in a u2u

CAn you tell me exactly what appeared and where - you certainly shouldn't be able to get U2U's in a public area - I will pass this on to Wayne.

Hey - you are several steps ahead of me - where do I start a discussion? :dizzy:

Can you add me as a friend on google+ - you should be able to get my details from FB

OK - no drop down box appears - I will keep laying tomorrow, but this looks like a one-off oddness - though it is worrying!

Hi all, it's Wayne here who built he new site and hosts this forum now.

I don't know much about this forum software, but I agree that the personal messages (u2u's) should not be available to view outwith the user accounts of those involved in any message.

Having said that, if the forum software is capable of interfacing with a 3rd part product, like Google's groups or G+ software, AND you validate your Google account with the forum, THEN it would be possible for Google to access your account and vice versa. However this would still not be public, only you would see this in Google. Anyway, that's just an example, IF this forum software is capable of interfacing with Google.

Is anyone who has seen this issue happening happy to take a screenshot of the page where these posts are apeearing in Google and forward it to me?
Send it to citrustreemedia@gmail.com please.

Cheers,
Wayne
