Advantages Locate old pals or make new friends
Disadvantages Needs more photos
Sceptical as always, I was very slow to look up the Friends reunited site. I always knew I would get around to it eventually and when my friends refused to shut up about it, I eventually took the plunge. Expecting to find maybe a handful of names I recognised, I was actually amazed at the amount of old school pals that had actually signed up for it. Not only that, but the site was still growing. So here's a run down on 'friendsreunited.co.uk.' and what I thought about it!
Upon joining you are ask to fill out some details. These are pretty standard, including forename, surname upon leaving, nickname etc. You can also add some relevant information for people to read about yourself, what you have been doing since you left school for instance. There is also a facility to allow you to add a picture. If you had taken a look around previously, you can now add details of the schools you attended, allowing you immediate access to all the information relevant to you, each time you log on ie You can go straight to your school and leaving year!
When I joined the site they had just added a workmates section where you can look up old work colleagues too! Now they have added even more features, which allow you to track down old University friends and people who you may have known through sports and social clubs. I really liked this aspect of the site, particularly the fact that they seem to spend a lot of time and effort on regularly adding new features. Should all these searches fail, you can look for individual names with a search facility, giving you an even better chance of finding those people that just seemed to disappear after you left school!
