“Good website for travel lovers”

Written on: 13/08/2014 by Constance7765 (1 review written)

I had registered to this website some time ago and at first I was surprised to receive many messages about different people adding me as friend, asking some travel questions etc.(similar to messages usually sent by Facebook). However, I discovered that there is a quite decent privacy options page. I have changed my settings and now I receive only those emails I wish to have in my mailbox. What I like best are the travel tips and photos - they have helped me to decide about my next holiday… Read Full Review

“I was told by my husband that I had an account on...”

Written on: 08/04/2014 by CerWeary (1 review written)

I was told by my husband that I had an account on here. Be weary, this website took very old information and a photo and posted it as current information saying that I updated my profile today and that I have twelve friends. I am not sure who is using this account but I pray they are not being bamboozled into thinking that is really me. I have reported this website to the FBI and reported it for identity theft. Be careful people. Also this website has twelve different websites, they are so… Read Full Review

“I want to know where they are located!”

Written on: 22/12/2013

If I could ever find out where they are headquartered, I have he money and the time to find them wherever they are and deal with them personally and forcefully. They behave in an unethical, unacceptable and, possibly, illegal manner. Stay away from them!… Read Full Review

“Useless Spam all the Way”

Written on: 26/11/2013 by M.Henry (7 reviews written)

Wayn has been spamming my mail inbox for a few months now and no matter how many filters i use, a few still seem to find their way among important mail. Do not even know how it all got started because i never registered for the service. Apparent all it takes is one friend to recommend you and they start to send you emails with all sorts of information about "friends" hope I can find a way to stop it beacuse I'm going nuts… Read Full Review

“Stole my photos & name, created fake profile”

Written on: 07/10/2013

Having googled my name, I came across "my" profile on Wayn.com. I have never registered my email address or name with them, yet there's a profile with photos stolen from my very old and embarrassing Myspace profile. I've emailed them to ask them to take it down but having googled the problem and seen that they've done it it other people, I'm not feeling confident that they'll get back to me. Just awful… Read Full Review

“Made my trip!!”

Written on: 12/06/2013

I'd never heard of WAYN before, but was searching around for some inspiration for a 3 week trip between finishing one contract and starting another.. It's a cool site - loads of great travel content and ideas - I've seen below that there has been a recent relaunch - well, they've got something right. It really throws the user into the travel discovery mode. I linked/ connected with loads of really helpful people in brazil, got insider tips and advice and they even put me in touch with friends… Read Full Review

“New design is an improvement ”

Written on: 09/05/2013 by Joshy12 (1 review written)

WAYN has a new design which personally I prefer and is much more current. Some parts of the site still have the dated pages but it looks like updates are ongoing. It is similar to a lot of stuff you get now, with content going into a grid of boxes, but here it actually makes sense. Turns it into a ready-made travel guide of sorts where you filter depending on what you want to see… Read Full Review

“Some flaws but overall I like it”

Written on: 25/04/2013 by DarrenColeridge (1 review written)

I came across the previous reviews from a search and have to say I've never had any experiences like that. Yes, i get some people add me as friends/send me random messages sometimes... but then i get that on twitter and facebook too. Nothing particularly different on wayn. Never had any 'bad' problems. wayn isn't perfect but it's not as bad as people before have suggested. They relaunched recently and the new site is definitely more use friendly than the old one and more travel… Read Full Review

“Way to go to find a prostitute!”

Written on: 24/03/2013 by SPEAKOUTPIERRE (1 review written)

I should not write a review as I quickly stopped to believe that this site was about people loving traveling as I. I finally found a way to unsubscribe it after many attempts. Anyway before doing it, I checked on "People" and just got females ...... many are looking prostitutes (I am a male). What? A travel site and I need to make an extra effort to be in touch with others males. … Read Full Review

“Scam, Spam, Bogus”

Written on: 23/01/2013 by Catywampus (1 review written)

My account has been suspended on WAYN and they refuse to answer any of my complaints on support @WAYN.com in spite of I have made many request, which they say will be answered in 24 hours. There is no way to contact anyone on this totally bogus site, nobody ever answers your concerns or anything else. I have been a VIP on here for years and they still have never reponded to any of my complaints about these repeat scammers. They have so many repeat scammers from Ghana on here who have well… Read Full Review

“WAYN”

Written on: 05/08/2012

WAYN Started off a decent travel site I gained many new friends. However now you have to have your wits about you as it appears to be changing into a website girls wanting husbands. It has also progressed along the pay for everything path which makes it very expensive if you do become VIP about £12-15 pcm!! I am still a member as I have lots of friends there. Had I not been a member I would say unless you want a wife or partner and want to sift through the scammers then steer clear… Read Full Review

“Used to be great but now it's lame and useless”

Written on: 07/07/2012

I joined Wayn around late 2008. Seemed to be the zenith of the website's popularity. There was lot of interaction and it was bustling with activity. Most members were genuinely passionate about traveling and offering their help and tips if you were coming to their area or destination where they had traveled before. Wayn started to go clearly downhill during late 2009 and 2010. The UI got filled with ads, the website got buggy, they removed the section where you could write review about hotels… Read Full Review

I agree completely. The true "Wayn" is no more. We need a real travel site - like Wayn used to be. How is it possible to completely destroy something that was a shining star in the social network jungle ?

Zainita's Comment

Written on: 15/08/2012

Feels like the owners don't care about their site/community anymore. They seemingly just want to milk as much money out of members as possible before closing the website.

Doesn't take a business degree from Harvard to figure out that members wont stay for long if you make even sending messages to other members to require paid membership. If you want to generate long-term profit you must offer quality service to the members instead of making it worse quality and the same time expecting people to pay more.

Yeah it's sad no site has really risen up to fill the place Wayn left when it went downhill. Lonely Planet has nice forum but not much of community features. Tripadvisor has way too many ads and the interface is kinda messy. Virtualtourist would need serious update to make the site more 21st century. Travbuddy is seemingly losing members and activity for various reasons. Then there's some smaller travel sites but they're in serious need of more members and activity.

“Simply very very very bad”

Written on: 30/06/2012 by eric_tao (1 review written)

To summarize: - Everything cost money. Can't even search for people or places without subscription - The technology of the site is a mess - overloaded with commercials, popup-windows and terrible user experience - Very difficult to navigate on the site. - Impossible to distinguish from objective travel advice and paid commercials It seems that Wayn - which started out as a pretty good idea(I was member there since 2007) now is heading for disaster. How they can miss their targets so… Read Full Review
