Github is "public" in the same sense that a pub or a discoteque is
"public": You are welcome as long as you comply with rules of the place.
For a pub or a discoteque your dress might not fit their dresscode, or
you may not consume enough of their sold beverages.
For Github your choice of license might not fit their auto-licensing.

I agree that Github is much more likely to to be discovered: It is
called the network effect - and is totally separat from public/private:
Your friendships are more likely to be discovered on Facebook which is a
similarly "public" place.
