    I've shared on FB, but I'm a bit more concerned about privacy than most, and when I tested a couple of the others' links here (with https: urls, which are SUPPOSED to be secure), I got into their FB pages without being "friends." It just makes me too nervous to post that link here in public! Sorry.
