badoo

http://www.badoo.com/

after being a member there for over a year, holding out for any redeeming qualities that might make it worth having, I finally deleted my account, & said bye-bye badoo

this site is great for flirty chat,  photo contests, & not much else, its features are very limiting, though they seem to have recently integrated some web-cam abilities (go figure), & personally I found the overall design & formatting of their pages not very appealing either, it almost seems as if their current homepage manages to look more cheap than their former homepage, which was actually perhaps the first & last thing I liked about badoo, but now it’s gone, & now, so am I, no more weekly private messages with lame pick up lines from men I’m not interested in, which is all badoo ever offered me, in review, I’d say the site isn’t so much about connecting with people as it’s just another chat & picture based online dating site, which is fine, if that’s what you’re looking for, but I wasn’t

geni

www.geni.com

I have found this to be a free, easy to use, convenient, internet based family tree building software, with photo (& video) hosting, that has multiple levels of privacy (you control who sees what), & it is a great way to get & keep in touch with one’s extended family, it can also be linked with one’s facebook account, if desired, & if a person does pay a subscription fee, then one gets access to “pro account” privileges, & after having used geni for 8 months now with such satisfaction, I might just try that out sometime in the near future


True Travellers Society

a website I became a member of a few years ago: http://www.truetravellers.org/

in the words of an Administrator of the site:

“Frustrated by the “volunteer in Asia, volunteer in Africa, volunteer in South or Central America, but first pay us lots of money” opportunities? We are too.
Our organization is a network of individuals that share information about no or minimal fee meaningful travel and volunteer travel opportunities around the globe. These opportunities can include anything from volunteering at an orphanage, to a festival, to wildlife conservation to you name it.”

it’s a worthy online forum, though I haven’t often found myself active there, I get a little frustrated with the interface of the website from time to time, & to this day I have not been able to use the little blog function that is supposed to be integrated into my profile there
