In your Friend Activity feed, the default view, you’ll notice that items don’t tell you who shared them — there are no names and no avatars. Instead, you see the topic or name of the link and the number of your friends who are talking about it. It’s not until you click on one that you discover who else is there. So go ahead and share that article about a quirky interest or guilty-pleasure song — the only people who will know it was you are the ones who are interested enough to click through.
