Quora reveals your reading habits by default
Most of us would probably do less Web surfing if everyone in the world could see all the items on sex, drugs and nasty diseases that we spend time reading.
Question-and-answer site Quora is adding a new Views feature -- one that's enabled by default -- today that reveals the identity of people who view posts, excepting adult topics and items you're not "following" on the site in some way. So if you follow a person or a subject to an item on "How to get rid of those pesky hemorrhoids," anyone who visits that page will see that you read it. (By contrast, if you searched for it or clicked into it via a related question, Quora won't out you in Views.)
Users can sidestep Views by either disabling the feature in their settings or clicking "delete" next to their username and profile picture on any individual view they have triggered.
