Sparkpage - Private Or Open

73

Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I believe that if you set your Sparkpage to private that you are limiting the benefit that you will receive from other members. If we get a chance to know you, we can offer you a pat on the back or a boost when it's needed or deserved. Friends..who may be perfect strangers..are the core of SP.

    It would be cool if our SparkPage view can be limited to just those who have an account with SparkPeople.

    i agree, but I also read that our pages if public can be googled and found by anybody. I don't like that idea.

    The SparkPeople community is what really makes this site different, and what makes me successful!!!

    help....I think I have my page set to private and would like to change it and cant seem to figure out how....I was wondering why I wasnt getting much feedback from people.... emoticon

    I AGREE. I DON'T THINK IT IS FAIR THAT THEY CAN READ ABOUT YOU AND KNOW THINGS ABOUT YOU AND THEY WON'T LET YOU SEE THINGS ABOUT THEM. THERE IS NO WAY TO HELP THEM IF YOU CAN'T READ ABOUT THEM.

    I also feel that being private on the S.Page......is to limit yourself......you lose out on lots of valuable motivation from others.......and this is what its all about...having...Comrades!. emoticon emoticon

    I love all the support - it certainly helps me stay on track.

    I agree. I like receiving support and suggestions from individuals.

    I agree with MARIA49 and BAILEYS7OF9. For the few years, my SP page was private and in the last year I opened it. I get encouragement from total strangers weekly and I love it!
MARIA49 5/19/2010 5:35:00 PM

    I absouletly agree. I also agree that if it's private you can't get feedback and support as often as you would need it. emoticon
BAILEYS7OF9 5/19/2010 5:23:00 PM

    I agree. I also understand why some set to private.
