Announcing SparkGoodies + 2 more Features

Thursday, February 07, 2008

Hi everyone!

We wanted to let you know about 3 new features and enhancements that we have added to the site today.

#1: SparkGoodies! Now, you can use the SparkPoints you earn to buy virtual “goodies” for yourself and others. We’re very excited for this new feature, which makes earning SparkPoints even more fun, and lets members reward themselves for their hard work and others for their support and accomplishments. You can learn more about how it works by reading this article or going to your SparkPage (Goodies are located on the left side below the photos).

#2: SparkTeams privacy. As of today, you can now choose which SparkTeams appear on your SparkPage. This was a frequent request by our members who want more privacy in terms of their interests, medical conditions and other lifestyle choices. What it means is this:

  • Private SparkTeams will never appear on your SparkPage for others to see.
  • You can choose to remove other public SparkTeams from your Page as well. If you belong to any SparkTeams that you don’t want to “publicize” for any reason, you won’t have to. To remove SparkTeams from your SparkPage, make sure you’re logged in and go to yourMy SparkTeams page. Uncheck the “Display on SparkPage” box next to any Teams that you don’t want to display on your SparkPage.

#3: SparkTeam Leader icons. This is a small enhancement. If you are a SparkTeam leader, a “leader” icon will appear on your SparkPage under that SparkTeam name. For example, since I lead the “Calling All Vegetarians” SparkTeam, people who visit my SparkPage will see that Team name/icon and that I’m the leader for that Team.

We hope that these new enhancements will make your experience at SparkPeople even better!
