Yes, this link will take you right to your "Mutual Friend Lookup" page:
www.sparkpeople.com/friend_lookup.asp

Here are the steps to get there without the link:
- Go to your SparkPage
- Click on Feed
- Click link for "Edit the privacy settings for your Activity Feed"
- Click link for "Mutual friends"

Hope that helps!

One more question. There used to be a way to open up a list of who you are friends with and who has made friends with you, just for comparison. Is that still possible?

Hi Luann - Nothing has changed in regards to adding friends on SparkPeople. It is as you mentioned: anyone can add you as a friend (unless your page is Private); the system does not provide the ability for you to accept or decline them adding you. You will appear on their SparkPage as their friend; but, they will not appear on your SparkPage unless you add them in return.

I'm glad all is okay with you, Linda. It's a good question that others will probably be glad you asked.

"To me this is the same as a friend request on fb"
Nope.
Not the same at all unless things changed... which is why I asked Merle for clarification.

On facebook you can accept or deny (or ignore!) a friend request. Here you do not. Thousands of people can add you as a friend on their Spark page with you not doing a thing... and without you reciprocating. You are under no obligation to do either, especially if you have no idea who the person is.

Congratulations! You've been added as a friend on *******'s SparkPage!

To me this is the same as a friend request on fb and suggests reciprocity.

It's all taken care of now, not a glitch, probably an error. Thanks for all your help.

Following, liking, and friending are different things.
Perhaps you are confusing them...


Merle, can you clarify something for me?
The OP says "I got two sparkfriend requests yesterday."
Is that possible?
I thought people just added you as a friend, no requests or acceptance or reciprocity required.
Did that change from what I remember?

They each have stated no known recollection of interacting, friending or following me. Didn't know who I was and both said "didn't remember" me.
I'll watch for further additions that I don't know.
Thanks.

Hi,

That's why I asked about them possibly "following" you. You can click the little + icon to follow someone on the Feed and may not realize that also adds them as a friend. I know that has happened with other members. I expect that is what happened in this case as we do not see any type glitch that would just randomly add friends with no action taken by a member.

I hope that makes sense.

I messaged both, neither remembers making me a friend.

Hi,

We have not seen a glitch in this regard. Is it possible they read something of yours in the Community Feed and marked to "follow" you from that post?

I got two sparkfriend requests yesterday. One a newbie, one someone who has been around for a long time.
Neither is on a common team, I have not read their blogs, etc. NO CONNECTION.
Neither remembers adding me as a friend.
Is this a website glitch?
