Friends Reunited

It seems that one of the first social media sites, Friends Reunited, is coming to an end according to an email I received this morning.
Quote
Not long ago I was approached by the FriendsReunited owners, to see if I wanted to take it back and try some new projects with it. It was evident that putting the site back to be more like its original form was not a service people would get excited about using again. The site is still used by a handful of members however it has become clear that the site is no longer really used for the purpose it was built for. For the site to continue it needs a complete re write and this is just not viable.
Therefore, it is with a heavy heart, that we have decided to close the service down. This will commence in the next month, We do recognise that people have a lot of old photos within their profiles on the site. We will therefore provide a link to allow you to login and download your photos. You will be receiveing an email in the coming months with further information on this.

I haven't used the site for some time and over the years only logged in to read some of the stories and view photos of my old school. Not surprised at its demise, though, with the likes of Facebook, Twitter, etc. none of which I am interested in

the value of your investment may go down as well as up, you may not get back all the money you paid...

I don't use facebook either... i hear people talking about facebook apps, games and various other features as if its the only internet they know exists. Soon people like us who visit other websites will be known as old school as in the future people won't be aware that there is an "outside" internet  Wink
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

You mean there's an Internet outside of bulletin boards? Smiley
