Welcome to the December edition of the Living File newsletter.
This month we're excited about some major feature improvements to Living File. Changes that will personalise your Living File experience and make it even more rewarding.
We hear your feedback, and we want to make it happen. Recently, you asked for two quite opposite type of features – so we decided to implement both of them.
Announcing a new privacy option that allows you to become completely invisible, even to other users on the site. Check the invisibility box on your privacy settings and only people that are already your friends will be able to see that you even exist as a user. You won't appear in user searches and if you don't have any friends on the site, you will be completely hidden.
More visibility, more impact
The second exciting change is for users who want the exact opposite – to be more visible. Until now your profile and activity lists have been visible only to other users on the site. But with the new options you can publish your activity lists, specific lists of books you've read or movies you've watched to anyone with an internet connection.
The default privacy option is for new activities to be visible only to friends, so only items that you have selected as ”visible to everyone” will be affected. In other words, there is no need to worry if you don't want people to see your activities and haven't made active changes to your privacy settings. And if you've chosen to be invisible, no one who isn't logged in – or who isn't your friend – will be able to see anything of yours on livingfile.com.

NEW: Activity Card tweaks
Another new feature optimizes the activity card feature for use on your homepage or your blog. It now links directly to your configured lists. See how it works on our example user:
We're working nonstop to improve Living File, even over the busy holidays. Next up we're planning to implement better editing features that will enable you to use colors, bold, italics and more when you write your journal entries. So keep checking in and watch out for our next newsletter!
