SparkPeople's research shows that members who are active in the Community with SparkPeople friends are exponentially more successful. We are always then looking for new ways to help members get more out of the Community.
We launched a feature today where we now suggest SparkPeople members who could be good friends for you to add. We base our suggestions on a number of things such as mutual SparkTeams, mutual friends, goals, and more. To find your suggestions you can go to our Community/SparkPages page and look in the "SparkPages Suggested For You" column on the left. Note you need to be logged in to see suggestions, and you can click a link at the bottom to see more suggestions.
This is somewhat a "beta" feature where we are tweaking the best way to recommend friends. We'd love to hear from you in the comments on this blog how good the recommendations seem to you!
