Free to join, the site’s notice board and member profile search aims to provide the common ground for people, wherever they are, to connect, share experiences, and even arrange to meet up.
Members are able to find like-minded people by searching on criteria as diverse as religion, pets, parents, geographic location, nationality, volunteering, to name a few. Because people join FriendsOnArrival for many different reasons, the site is designed to be safe and easy to use.
All public content is reviewed before going on the site. On top of this, FriendsOnArrival adhere to, and are licensees of the TRUSTe Privacy Program. This means that members can give as much or as little information as they want and can be assured that none of it gets passed onto advertisers or spammers.
To coincide with the launch, each month new and existing members go in the draw to win iPod nanos and Casio EX-S500 digital cameras. According to Maurizio Marmotta, the site’s founder, plans for expanding the site are already underway. www.FriendsOnArrival.com
