Friends Reunited, another site for the naughty list

January 22nd, 2007 by Alistair MacDonald Leave a reply »

Just a quick warning that if you are considering taking out membership of Friends Reunited that the £7.50 only buys you 6 months instead of the original 12.

I took out membership to contact friend who contact me but did not realise that if they did not include there email address in the message I would have to pay to reply. This I can just about cope with, and I can just about cope with the price increase that is just over my comfort level for squandering on a web service, but in my mind the way the that the 12 months has just been halved and all references to the duration bar one not changed but removed from the site is dishonest.

In reality I do not need membership for 12 months but I do feel strongly that I have been conned never the less, and this is not what ITV should be doing to revive the web service. More information about this is on the Guardian Unlimited web site here and here where free registration is required.

Finally if you would like to contact someone through Friends Reunited in the next few days, don’t take out membership, just ask me to pass on you email address for free.

    I found this out last year. After I renewed, it said I had 6 months left. I searched the website and couldn’t find one entry about the length of membership. I complained and they gave me an extra ‘free’ 6 months, not that I’ve contacted anyone else. I certainly won’t be renewing again.
