I suggest you ...

New boards should be private by default.

This includes the 'My First Board' board that is automatically created for new users — given its name, it is not unreasonable to think that eager new users might add bookmarks here without realising that it is publicly visible; the padlock icon (of lack thereof) is easily overlooked.

Users should have to explicitly consent to sharing their data by opting-in, not out. That this is not currently the case sends a poor message in terms of how your company views issues of privacy, regardless of your actual stance. As a new user myself, I found it very off-putting and my trust in the service has been diminished.

        Randy. What was the result of the ticket you created?

        I agree with psub. Maybe you can create a preference for the default behavior.
