changing to private pages

Saturday, January 21, 2012

For everyone who is changing to private pages because they google their name:
If you google your name it will come back with everything you have done or accounts not just your spark page. Not much is private these days. And only your spark page if you use your real name.
Your spark page will not come up unless they have your user name for spark. So don't use your real name for it. Someone would have to know your spark name to find it.
If you change your page to private your friends can't always find you.
Consider changing your spark name.

    In this day if someone wants to get information they can get it. I always just use my real name.And if I had been private I would have missed meeting some wonderful people.

    I went private with my page for reasons totally unrelated to either the "googling" issue or the recent FB share controversy - my decision and the reason for it just happened to coincide timewise.....

    Excellent points! I'm sure a lot of folks never even considered this.....thank you for sharing!

    Good advice for sure. I never could figure out why someone would not only use their given name but do so and then set everything to private. Isn't the reason to join a support group is to share and interact?
