Re-unite with Friends for free Thursday, November 01, 2007
Friends Re-united, the ITV owned social "re-network" site for contacting your old school and university friends is dropping it's subscription model according to Jemima Kiss at the Guardian.
If you wanted to "reach out" to those you'd evidently decided to drop as friends previously, you had to pay about £7.50 or so for a premium membership that would let you send them a message via Friends Re-United.
Given that many of those people can be freely found and contacted via Facebook etc, one might suggest uncharitably that only the ignorant, stupid or desperate must have resorted to paying FU.
So now, you can happily hook up with folks from 20-30 years ago to either gloat or be gloated at, all without charge.
