Many consumers use amazon to create wishlists for gifting purposes. Unfortunately amazon.com has removed the feature to search for "public" wishlists. When I think public I think anyone has access. In order for consumers to share their wishlists with family, coworkers or an childs birthday party attendee you must share your wishlist through email or text. Which really puts a damper on a surprise gift if you've forgotten a invitation. Amazon currently has 3 choices but only 2 options for access to a wishlist.... private, share, or public and the public feature of course is pointless without the ability to search. I've contacted customer service and many representatives didnt even know this had been changed. Agreeing that it completely removes the point in surprise gifting. After 5 csr's they confirmed that you must now share your "public" wishlist via some other platform ie. Email, text, or s social network. For this reason I'm currently doing my Christmas shopping on other sites.
