“SEARCH, FILTERS AND GROUPING RUINED”

Written on: 29/05/2014

Looks like it was designed on a training course in MS word! It seems to think that putting a million people in a group and locking out any sub-filters makes life easy! There's little correlation between your meta-data and the database, other than year. The owners have obviously no idea about big data and analytics. It seems to match on a year span only and disregards any other sub-filters and criteria that you've created in the profile. The text formatting is constrained in HTML and is… Read Full Review

“Friendsreunited is rubbish”

Written on: 26/05/2014 by Julissa305 (1 review written)

They should have left it as it was. They have ruined a site that was functioning well. You cannot find anything. It's very amateurish and the present owners have trashed it… Read Full Review

I agree wholeheartedly, I don't even bother to look any more, such a terrible shame! :'( Someone should start a petition to bring the old one back.

“I thought I had lost the plot!”

Written on: 21/11/2013

After trying for 2 hours to find my old information re school friends, work place, photos etc I just closed the site down. Incidentally after having been told that my password was not recognised. I am so disappointed to have lost contact with numerous friends I had found again dating back to 1958. But unfortunately many of them are not yet on Facebook… Read Full Review

“Rubbish website”

Written on: 12/11/2013

Total waste of time. I thought I had logged into some sort of scam website. Couldn't look up anything. Next time I log in I am going to cancel my details and be removed. The site was better 8 years ago, they are going backwards with technology. Not even worth rating one star… Read Full Review

“Terrible programming and waste of a good site”

Written on: 12/11/2013 by thejbong (1 review written)

I totally agree with everybody here. All I get These days is a broken Website with just text, some adverts and that's about it. Whoever ruined this place by "going with the times" should be ashamed. I've just managed to delete my account from the site and won't be going back. All I Need to do is look for an alternative. Anybody got any ideas? A very peed off ex user. Jay… Read Full Review

“friends impossible to reunite”

Written on: 24/10/2013

If I could give no stars I would, this new look site is awkward to navigate and hugely frustrating. I managed to access only half a message advertising a school reunion and suspect, sadly, that I'm not alone. Please FR return to the way things were, it wasn't't broke so why break it!??… Read Full Review

“Finally they have bit the dust !”

Written on: 15/10/2013

I joined F.R years ago when it first came out. The original site was very easy to use, and I met a lot of school friends, lot's of photos, and memories. Shame on the new owners, revert back to the old user friendly site that we all enjoyed and do us all a favour… Read Full Review

“Totally Ruined”

Written on: 18/09/2013 by Catblack (1 review written)

I wish the original owners would buy the website back and restore it to its original format. The new owners have totally ruined it and don't seem to understand or care why members are furious about the changes. Their attitude towards members is arrogant and patronising, always insisting that they know best. The Facebook page is full of messages from confused users looking for old friends but they really don't have a hope when the website is now concentrating on the silly memory boxes. I've… Read Full Review

“Not fit for purpose ”

Written on: 16/09/2013 by Nickward160 (1 review written)

It's been a while since I had time on my hands to use FR, but now that I've taken early retirement I thought it would be good to catch up with some ex school chums I had clocked on previous visits to the site. Horror! Everything gone and no meaningful way of re-establishing contact or even finding those previously registered. The new owners seem to have jettisoned everything that was of any merit on the site. What a waste - if this is social networking then bring back the quill and blotting… Read Full Review

“What a shame”

Written on: 16/09/2013

I was on FR for years....used to pay the subscription, then it was free, I loved it. Great way to say hi to some old friends and post photos of us all at primary school. Then came the changes. I wrote to them at the time to say I was leaving and why, but they poo poo'd me saying they had to move with the times, sorry you feel that way...goodbye. Who ever made the dire changes .... shame on you. … Read Full Review
