Etsy's Privacy Policy is Beginning to Look a Bit Like Facebook's

edward cullen's eyes
Here's a Regretsy not made of yarn and 'Twilight' fantasies: Indie shop Etsy has made all of its user activity public, linked its profiles with Facebook's and published real names. The Facebook-like move has irritated Etsy fans, but blog Etsy Bitch has figured a way to undo the settings: just go your profile and editing choices. The site has not yet commented on this baffling move, but did mention why buyer feedback was public.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: Since we ran this story, Etsy has contacted us to say that all of the purchases and feedback on Etsy are set, by default, on private.]
