How you appear to others
Once you have registered, others will be able to view some items in your profile (that you choose to make public).
Our Find-a-Friend matching system depends on you!
Your next step in completing your journey as a new TherapyFriend is to please fill out as much of your profile as you can!
Rather than getting our TherapyFriends from filling out too many forms on sign-up, we rely on you to update your profile when you have time, and when you feel like it!
Then, you can see how closely YOU match to our other TherapyFriend members when viewing their profiles.
About your Profile
We ask you to provide some general items (like the “Friend Details”), as well as some specific items which our Premium FriendLevels include.
You have control!
Rest assured, you have finite control over your profile data.
Profile fields have a little link under them which give you the choice of saying who can see that item.
If it is something you only want to provide for our matching system (which does not expose your actual answers), then you simply choose “Only Me” as your privacy choice.
The choices you can make are:
- All our TherapyFriends (Registered users we have approved)
- Connections (TherapyFriends you have approved to connect with you)
- Only Me (Will not be displayed in your “View Profile”)
We also take precautions against hackers (including anti-hacker insurance!), and back up your precious data routinely in the very rare case of data loss.
