Have You Used Your Friend Feed Lately?


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, February 23, 2010


Can you believe it's been almost one year since we launched the Friend Feed and Current Status updates on SparkPeople.com?

Your Friend Feed (which includes a "Current Status" feature that allows you to earn 1 SparkPoint per day by updating your status) allows you to keep up with your mutual SparkFriends and helps them to stay up-to-date with you. This helps you stay in contact, get support and better communicate with your SparkFriends and others in the Community. Think of it as one more way to get the help and support you need.

If you are unfamiliar with the Friend Feed or want to learn more about using it, you can read this informational article.

Upgrades to Friend Feed Launched Last Week
For those of you who enjoy following what your SparkFriends are doing by reading your Friend Feed, you may have noticed a few new features we incorporated last week, including:

  • You can now subscribe to comments on Status items! When you comment on an item in someone's feed, there is now a checkbox where you can subscribe (optional). This subscription will work just like the message board subscriptions do: You will get an email after the first comment, and then no more emails until you click the link in the email. This way, you'll know if someone answers your question or comments back to you!
  • "Current status" updates will remain in your Friend Feed for 30 days. Everything else (SparkPoints earned, blog posts created, etc.) will still be removed from Friend Feed after 7 days. Many members have requested this as a means of de-cluttering the feed, while still seeing what their friends have been up to.


We hope you enjoy using the Friend Feed and Current Status features on SparkPeople--especially with the new updates we just made to the features. Thanks as always for sharing your ideas and feedback about the site so that we can make it better for everyone!

    Hey can someone help me ? I cannot get my sparkpage to fill in to tell about myself or post pictures. Is it because i am on a mac? Does anyone know? I tried twice.
