Can someone explain the public region setting?

I am alt-tabbed out of a game that I created and I selected public region and sandbox mode.

I understand sandbox mode but how exactly does the public setting work?

Can other people mess with my cities? Is there a FAQ that explains it without too much BS?

Other people can join your region. Thats it
Private region: Only people who you allow can place cities in your region. Also can be just used by you.
