Friend Finder Review
Friend Finder offers you the chance to make new friends or find someone who might become more than just a friend in the end. Maybe you just moved to a new city. Perhaps you crave conversation with someone from far away. Maybe you’re simply shy in person but feel outgoing online. Whatever the case may be, finally someone has created a web-friendly way to make friends.
Making friends on a traditional dating site can be daunting. Often members tend to be looking for love or at least romantic hookups. Just being friends is construed as failure when it isn’t the goal. FriendFinder is designed with its focus being friendship. However, if you’re looking for romance, there’s a separate but fully integrated section for that.

Basic membership limits you from seeing full profile details. However, premium members can pay extra to display their profiles to everyone. Popular profiles are sometimes given special viewing privileges for free. If interested in someone’s profile, you can send a friendly “wink” or add the profile to your hot list so the other member is notified.
You can join in on message boards under various categories of shared interests on the My Friends Network page. What’s that, you ask? It’s your place to keep track of all the new people you meet online. You can share picture albums, send group bulletins and post testimonials onto each other’s profile, stating what a wonderful pal you’ve been.
You can check out the Friend Finder magazine section filled with subscriber-submitted articles. They cover all sorts of topics, advice and personal stories of dating successes or failures. If you want to hear some daily rants and ramblings, you can visit the blogs section. If you care to share, you can even start one of your own.
FriendFinder chat rooms are open to anyone who’s signed up. If you’re a premium member, you can expand any fellow chatter’s profile to see what the person looks like, and you have the ability to open private chat rooms.
The two levels of subscription offer several advantages, including the ability to view and contact all members. They get advanced search options. They’re emailed a list of potential matches. Their profiles appear above standard members on completed searches, and they have faster profile/photo approvals, as well as customer support.
The more expensive membership goes the extra mile with faster services. It has increased message-storage limits. It offers the most advanced keyword searches. There are also extra services like highlighting your profile and allowing all levels of access to contact your account, which you can get by paying a monthly fee in addition to your membership. Friend Finder still remains one of the most popular online meeting places ever.
