Both lino users and non-registered users (guests) can post stickies on a canvas, and relocate or remove them when needed. A lino user can choose public access level for each of his/her canvases from three levels; “Public” (publicly accessible), “Friends” (limitedly accessible), and “Private”(non-accessible except by its creator).
