When I set up an internet-connected game of Dead Island, I'm allowed to specify how many public and private slots I want to have available. What distinguishes them? Ideally, I want only my Steam Friends to be able to connect to my games; will setting all my slots to private do this?

Public slot means that anyone can join your game via matchmaking.
Private slot means that only your friends or invited people can join your game.
