Hope not...investors may decide they want to "limit" or "restrict" content - or even add advertisers that would not be appropriate for the Spark world.

I hope not, big money will invest and then the only goal is to maximize shareholder profit.

I believe that the OP is speaking of Spark People selling Stock in their company. And not of how accessible it is.

I don't buy stock so I wouldn't by stock in Spark People.

Isn't it public? It is accessible to everyone, only hope that they do not start charging for any of their features.

I think it is public now - anyone can access it.

I think the idea of a commercial is cool but what if tons more people start joining so Spark gets the idea of charging for some of the features? =(

And like, I've never met a mean person on here so what if commercials attract meanies who just want to join to make fun of people? =( I know there's nothing stopping that from happening now but I feel like if Spark got bigger and bigger and bigger maybe it would increase the chances of it happening?

I think it already is - and by word of mouth from all of us, it will be even more public. I've told bunches of people about this great program

A friend told me about SP a week ago today. I was surprised to hear how long it has been around and I never heard of it. SP is better than JC, NS, WW all the others. If they go public, I'll buy stock.

I don't know if it will, but it should

I've been using it for years and have watched it grow (and grow). Spark has been such a tremendous help to me. It would be great if they went public - I would love to be a "partner" in this :)

It would be nice if they did.

Not sure if they will but it would be greater than the I-pad in my opinion. The world needs to be exposed and maybe we could have longer, healthier lives.

sparkpeople has been a great tool for me over the years and I'm wondering if they have any plans to go public. I would be first in line to invest :)
