I don't think there is much chance of a virus while you are on SparkPeople, and whether your spark page is public or private wouldn't enter into it at all because you are not entering things directly onto another person's page, it is all going through the SP system. It's not like you have that person's email address - or name - or anything else.

I can see not wanting to post a photo, or perhaps even your real weight -- but isn't it the reason we are all on here? To lose the extra weight and learn more about how to live a healthy lifestyle. It's like going to the beach but not wearing a bathing suit. Or going to a concert and then putting on headphones to listen to something else! No one is here to ridicule another member, if they did I think they would be kicked off the site.

I know some people have it on PRIVATE accidently, and it's something we should all check, because if you don't get any comments, goodies or friends, that could be the reason why.

that is a good thought . mine is wide open . like my mind i keep it open to find out more about the others that follow the spark way of speaking to others . we need to be open . I can not speak for everyone but if your fear being open because of virus i can see that point .

I noticed as I was trying to welcome new members to our Team, that many of you have decided to make your page "Private." Or.... possibly some of you inadvertently checked that box without really thinking about it.

It's definitely one's own business as to why you would want to join a group but then make your Spark Page private -- but the only reason I'm bring this up is that normally I like to give
a "welcome" gift to each new member. And sometimes I like to send gifts "just because."

So look at your page and see if the setting is private or public. And make sure that's the way you want it to be.
