    The main thing that makes Spark work is the ability to communicate with others on our journey--and part of the way we communicate is thru our Spark page---which you now have taken away from us----why in the world do you think we want to look like Facebook---we want to be DIFFERENT because we are different.

    I suspect that you are surprised by the “push-back” and negative feedback that you are receiving regarding the recent changes to the Spark pages. I am not a fan of the changes either. When I reflected on why is everyone so upset, it took me back to my days of working in the hospital in mission integration. Culture is not any easy thing to change. Something that you may not think is important may have already become embedded in the psych of the members. You have created a culture at Spark and the membership has brought into it, thrives on, and now accepts as their own (legacy). When you adapt and make changes without consulting and informing as to the “why” ; you risk damaging the culture you have created.

    I don't like the changes made to my page either! I have totally lost my motivation over it and may even leave my spark page altogether. I binged all day yesterday and that is not what this site is supposed to do, it is supposed to give us support-part of that support was creating my own page with my own quotes, themes and dreams. Please consider taking the pages back to the way they were.

    I do NOT like the new look to MY sparkpage, it is generic, it is NOT me, it has made me lose my motivation, it has made me lose all respect for SparkPeople. My page gave me individuality, to be me, to like the things I like most about SparkPeople.
    There was NO advance notice about this change, NONE.
    This change may force me to leave
