Disqus update offers a little more privacy

tumblr_inline_mp9tp1sgbL1qz4rgpDisqus, the comment system used by many blogs world-wide, and indeed Whaleoil, now allows you some control over who gets to see your comment history:

We’re also happy to announce that starting today, you can choose to keep your comment activity private. Your activity will still be public to anyone on the site where you left them, but your activity through your profile or other activity feeds will not be public.

When you make your Disqus activity private, the following restrictions are added to your account:

  • Your comment history and activity will only be viewable by you.
  • People who are currently following your account will no longer be able to see your activity via your profile or daily digest emails.
  • People will no longer be able to follow your account. The number of existing followers will still appear in your profile stats, but they will not be able to view your activity.

Please visit our FAQ for more information or questions about this new feature.
