4 Million members can't be wrong.

AdvantagesGood content, nice people, lots of members.

DisadvantagesEvil capitalist marketing scam.

"...suits.) and market to, and bolt.com partners up with Proctor and Gamble, Kodak, AT&T, American Express, and AOL. 4 million users give all of their details, their demographics, their interests.. With every tagbook question youth opinion is being gauged. The polls on the front page are usually quite focused, but every now and again they'll say something like "what do you want to see in a car?" or "how much money do you spend on CDs a week". The information ..." Read review

Bolt is Brilliant...

AdvantagesGreat fun

DisadvantagesAddictive

"Ever since I got the Internet in November of last year, Bolt has been like a second home to me. I was just messing around on a search engine one day when it popped up onto my screen like magic, and from that moment I was hooked. If you take a look for yourself then you’ll understand why. But if that isn’t enough to entice you then I guess I’ll just have to explain exactly why Bolt is without doubt one of the best sites on the web. ..." Read review

Like a bolt out of the blue

AdvantagesColour and different things to do

DisadvantagesNeeds small down load so doesn't woek at college

"ukbolt.com and bolt.com I don't really use this site anymore as it can be quite slow and the computers at school wont load the chat, but when I used the chat site at home it is a quite good one. The layout and design is good and there are hundreds of rooms to choice from. You can even create your own room and lock it when you have everyone you want in it for privacy and security. This chat site allows you to use different colours in your speech ..." Read review

Bolt.com is the best

AdvantagesVery various.

DisadvantagesUseless stuff included and a bit slow sometimes

"...from all over the world. Bolt.com has several abilities: the bolt notes, a e-mail server, countless chatrooms, a webhosting service, the famous bolt boards and many other options. The bolt notes are for small notes to send to other members. The e-mail server is of course for e-mail. One of the most important things here is that you don't get any junkmail. There are chatrooms for the members and the boards are messenge boards with topics variating ..." Read review

hey, no off-topic posting

Advantageslot of fun, great way to make friends

Disadvantagescan get bitchy

"I happened across bolt.com during a long, tedious lunchtime at school. The site is basically a huge international on-line community where you can send people notes, e-mails, instant messenger messages, post on the boards, take part in surveys, create a member profile, play games, and much more. First, of course, you have to register. I'm now on my third ID, with about my millionth icon. It doen't cost to register, though if you wish to upgrade ..." Read review

bolted

Advantagesrange of people, free web space and e-mail

Disadvantagescan be slow, server has 'off days'.

"I like bolt.com. I really do. I've been around there for about 2 years and I'm a regular on the cool/uncool board and various others. I'd have to say that I think the boards are the best feature though - the chat is pitiful and the clubs vary wildly, depending on the people in them, and obviously the subject. I've talked to loads of people through bolt that normally I'd never have been in touch with - there's a real variety of people, from 13 (minimum ..." Read review

I wouldn't say wow about it

AdvantagesFriends, email

Disadvantagesboring

"Bolt.com is for teenagers and I have been using bolt.com for a while now but I only use it because I have a friend on there, if I didn't have this friend then I would've stopped using it a long time ago. You have to register fistly and choose a user name. This is for meeting friends and having email. So the email is quite handy. With your email it lets people leave voice messages for you and you can leave them for other members. Once you have ..." Read review

Great ish

Advantagesfree, lots of uses

Disadvantagesfull of teenagers cybering

"Bolt.com is a site aimed at those aged between 15 (minimum age to join) and those aged about 20, although there is no upper limit you really should have left the place by then. It is a teenage community that offers; 1) E-mail [membername@bolt.com] 2) Bolt notes (messages that can only be sent to other members, and stores speratey from E-mails, much more convenient too). 3) Message boards, boards for everything from Pirates, Chickens, and ..."

sheah, whatever

Advantagescan look for friends to chat to

Disadvantagestoo US centric, most of the people you wouldn't WANT to chat to

"i found out aout about this because it was one of the things hotmail told me about when i set up my account. at first i thought it was mediocre, but them my estimation went down. i found it quite difficult to navigate at first, but i did get over that. i couldn't find anything to suit me though. it seemed too US centric, and the boards were full of stupid people with no opinions worth saying (Hello Mr Kettle). i thought the way you could look ..."

Is teenage chatting bad.

AdvantagesGives them freedom.

DisadvantagesIs is bad?

"The government has stopped young children from using the Internet to chat and I believe that this could be a bad thing. Children need to be able to have their own freedom. The government says that teenage chat leads to perverts meeting and picking up young girls. I believe that parents should have some control over their children and make them realise that information should not be given out to anybody. Parents’ influences children to not smoke, ..."
