After consultation with a number of my contacts and reading comments made by many, regarding the recent updates. It would appear that most people are concerned about their privacy. For those that fall into this category and would like to know what to do for the best. Then please read the following. "Supplied by Dev" and as Mark (little fish) Slack, would say, "have fun"

Rob has posted an entry that will help Windows Live and Spaces users, dissatisfied by the updates where they feel that their privacy has gone out of the window. You can control most if not all aspects of the updates that show up on your profile and on your ‘What’s new with your network’ page. I have added a more info to the tutorial that Rob created.
Sign in to Windows Live Home with your Windows Live ID (The e-mail address and password that you use to sign in to Windows Live programs and services such as Windows Live Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger).
You can now carry out any of the following>>
How to delete any item from ‘What’s new with you’:
How to change what types of updates you’ll publish in the future:
How to change what types of updates show up on ‘What’s new with your network’:
Check or un-check the update types that you want to see from your network and You can also chose to hide updates from a specific user in your network. Click the [Save] button when done.
Both your Windows Live Home page and Spaces Home page have the ‘What’s new with your network’ section. This section on the Windows Live Home page covers updates from all the Windows Live and 3rd party such as blogs, twitter updates, notes, photos, files, etc. The section on the Spaces Home page only covers the updates regarding spaces. But both of them have a common place where you can select what type of updates you want to receive or see from your network and the respective home pages will be updated accordingly depending on what you want have selected to receive.
Other windows Live services have their respective ‘What’s new with your network’ sections.
Setting your Profile Permissions:
All the updates types that you chose to publish from http://profile.live.com/whatsnewwithyousettings/ are only shown to whom you want to show. To change this setting…
Go to the item that you want to change. Next to Shared with, click on the current setting, and then select who can see the information.
Setting your Spaces Permissions:
For Spaces users, You can set your permission settings from the options link which is found on the top right hand region of your space. Click on the link and select ‘Permissions’ from the drop down menu (shown below).
Selecting who you want to show your Space is similar to setting permission for the Profile Page as mentioned above.Once you finish setting up your permission click on the ‘Save button’ to save your permission settings.
Similar permission settings are available for other Windows Live services such as Photos, Sky Drive, etc. (Once signed in search for a link, ‘More’ from the drop down menu select, ‘Edit Permissions’).
I hope this tutorial covers all aspects regarding your privacy settings for Windows Live and Spaces. Your feedback is valuable.

Rob has written in detail about the New updates in Windows Live ‘wave 3’. You might want to check out the links below. They could help you understand these changes and perhaps solve a few problems or frustrations that you might have with the updates.
As you may have guessed, I now feel refreshed from my escape into reality, and I am now open to any fantasy you care to mention !
and no, I am not going back to my sofa, I intend to take a walk in the snow.
