    Under my privacy options, I have un-checked the option that says
    Show your online status
    This will allow other people to see what page you are currently viewing.

    But when I look at my profile, I still see:
    Is this because I'm viewing my profile myself? Or is this something others can see as well?

    In your profile, recent activities and postings still show what you've been up to. All you hid was your online status. I can't see your status, so it might have been cached, or it might be because you can always see your own status.

    There is another setting, where you can hide your profile.

    I just looked at your profile. I do not see where you are right now.

    Cool, thanks.

    I don;t mind having my profile open; I just prefer it to not show when I am on the board (unless I post, of course).

    Also check your status in chat- open the little gear next to the "who's online" chat window. Anyone you follow can see that status, and it's different from the profile status.
