We’ve just updated our site to make it easier for you to find and adjust your privacy settings. We thought it was important to make this adjustment to better reflect the realities of the internet today. If you’re a returning listener you’ve probably already seen a reminder about your Pandora profile page, something we’ve offered since we launched.
This reminder provides you with the immediate opportunity to see your profile, make it public, private, or learn more. If you click on ‘Learn More,’ you’ll be taken to some FAQs.
New listeners will see a similar message when they register and we’re in the process of sending emails to the folks who listen to Pandora exclusively on mobile devices, encouraging them to access their Pandora account on a computer to check out our new privacy features.
All profile pages on Pandora now have a prominent ‘Privacy Settings’ link on the upper right. These settings let you specify how public you want your profile to be and, if you’re a Facebook user – whether or not you’d like to import your information from Facebook to Pandora.
We’re big believers in the social aspect of music discovery and sharing and want to make it as easy as possible, but we also want to make sure we respect each listeners’ personal comfort when it comes to this. It is our sincere hope that this new format does just that!
As always – we welcome your feedback about this. It’s a very important issue to us and we want to get it right.
Thanks for taking the time to read this through – and keep on listening!
