Certainly an interesting little feature that helps you to promote yourself but we don’t know how effective it could be at this stage – if you don’t yet have a proper profile to promote then it’s hardly going to have a very good effect on your best matches.
Therefore our advice would be to finish your profile first and perhaps take a little look around the site yourself in order to see what’s on offer before you start sending out your profile description to possible matches.
In 2009, Friends Reunited was picked up by Brightsolid, a subsidiary of Scottish newspaper group DC Thompson, for £25m.
In the past we’ve criticised Cupid-owned sites for scammy practices in trying to get you to join their sites.
Kind of old-fashioned stuff if you ask me – I remember using them in the early 2000s but at this day and age they seem kind of retro.
Still, they work pretty well and some of them seem to have a fair number of users too, so if that’s your scene, go and check them out.
There’s even a video chat option, so it’s all pretty safe and secure.
If you don’t want to have a one-on-one chat with someone there are also a few of chat rooms on this site.
Brightsolid owns several big brands in the nostalgia and family history market – including Genes Reunited, Find My and a searchable digital version of the UK's 1911 census – so giving Friends Reunited a makeover in this direction is not a surprising.
