Adult Friend Finder
Adult Friend Finder is one of the megasites created by internet entrepreneur Andrew Conru and though hugely successful and very much Web 2.0 in its approach and style it is also very much the centre of a lot of controversy in the way it has allegedly been organised and Andrew Conru himself made history by being one of the first people ever charged under the anti-Spam legislation in 2000. The controversy continues with the publicity of many details on RipOffReport.com
Match-making megasites are a hybrid, a place where their issue of existence is definitely fudged. People go there to meet friends and new people just for online (or offline) companionship, as well as meet people for sex and adult-related, consensual activities.
Adult Friend Finder is backed by a solid network of almost 200 employees and, debate about the legality of what goes on as a result, aside, has set a standard for internet Web 2.0 adult, personal networks. What sets Adult Friend Finder apart from its many imitators is the sheer degree of functionality available to you for a free registration and the size of the community.
Unlike most standard personal sites the thumbnails your free membership entitles you to are pretty racy and this probably entices a lot of paid for registrations. Free members have full access to the chat rooms and forums and paid subscriptions only give you more functionality rather than greater access. This teaser, membership-bait approach has worked exceedingly well for the site which now boasts a membership in excess of 23 million worldwide.
Log on to the site and its regional-recognition programming picks up your IP address and pre-fills some of the search form fields for you. The site also tells you how many members have joined from your country so you know what your chances are at least.
Price: Monthly Recurring $19.95/month
Terms: Memberships automatically recur at published rates unless canceled.
