I concur that this is what I've seen and been told by the support staff at
FamilySearch [that you can see your own entries of living people but they
are invisible to others]. YEARS ago I had submitted info to Ancestral File
that is now in Family Search but it is needing the death dates on people
added. I updated my contributor info so I can "see" all the people I
entered, who appear as living but no one else can.

My best guess at this point is that you can see information about living
people you submitted when you are logged in, but not for living people where
another submitter has contributed the information. I'm basing this
conjecture on people I can't see in a branch a cousin would most likely have
