SparkPeople's Friend Feed allows you to keep up with your mutual SparkFriends, and helps them to stay up-to-date with you more easily, too! Put simply, your Friend Feed shows all of the SparkPeople Community activities of your friends in one place.|
Your Friend Feed can contain the updates for the following activities:
When we talk about Friend Feeds, we're really talking about two things:
We realize that you might not want to share all of the activities listed above with others, but keep in mind that all of these actions are already public to the Community. The Friend Feed simply puts it all in one place. By default, all of the activities above will show up in your Activity Feed (with the exception of weight lost, which is private by default). Note that you can edit these settings any time by clicking here and you have the option to remove your Activity Feed from your SparkPage.
Only your mutual friends will be able to see these updates about you (and vice versa). A mutual friend is someone who has added you as a friend AND whom you have also added as a friend. You can click here to use our Mutual Friend Finder to find out which of your SparkFriends are "mutual" friends. Other members who aren't mutual friends will NOT see these updates about you. The one exception to this is Status changes (more info below). If you update your status, and choose to make it public, anyone who visits your SparkPage will see it.
To see your Friend Feed (updates from your mutual friends), click here. From your Start page (Click on "Start" at the top of the page, or scroll over the "My Trackers" tab at the top of the page and select "Start" to go to your Start page. Scroll down your Start page and on the right side under "My Community Quick Links" you will see "Friend Feed". Click there.)
Changing Your Status
One of the Friend Feed options is a "Current Status" feature. As a bonus, you can earn 1 SparkPoint per day for updating your status! If your preferences allow, your Status changes will also show up in the Feeds of your mutual friends and in the Activity Feed on your SparkPage (viewable by anyone who visits your Page).
We hope that you will update your status with actions related to your healthy lifestyle journey—foods you ate, workouts you completed, goals you met, or support that you need, but you can update your status with just about anything! You can change your current status as often as you'd like (you must be logged in for this to work):
