All nicknames are now public. The one great thing about them was that no one was in your business and looking at different names you chose to be under. It's pretty horrible that they can now be seen by anyone looking at your page. I've got few harassers that pop up from time to time, and wouldn't want my information to be seen. Now it seems I have to make my profile private to keep any who aren't added from seeing my material. Which is kind of sad by itself, because some who aren't added could still see status'.
