Keep schools private

Keep schools private

Short, concise description of the idea
If the profile is set to show schools to friends only, do not display in the school directory.

Full description of the idea
When I read:

Schools Show your schools to: [Friends only]

I assumed that actually meant that only my friends could see my schools. Imagine my surprise when this account appeared in the public listing of the school's alumni. Since I was two of the four alumni, this was Not Good.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Honors user preferences
  • Makes the UI more consistent
  • Avoids user angst/stress/anger
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • System will have to check before displaying the schools directory.
  • The check might slow down the directory display.
