Havent been logging into my wholivesnearyou account. So decided to drop by to see if any new people in my block just join us. Was greated by a rude surprise. Pls pay $2.
You got to be kidding. I need to pay to communicate with other users on Who Lives Near You? Why should i?
Here what I got….
You may continue to use the service but are required to upgrade to a Verified Account to communicate with other members and enjoy exclusive features.
What do you mean by a Verified Account?
A Verified Account proves that you are a genuine member of your neighbourhood, as identified by your unique mobile number. It deters people who try to misuse the service by creating multiple accounts to harass others with profanity or obscene messages that ruin the community-building spirit that WhoLivesNearYou is trying very hard to create. Offenders will be banned and refused membership indefinitely.
How much does it cost?
Verification is simple and very affordable. It works by sending an SMS at a one-time cost of $2; your participation supports our efforts in creating better features for you and to keep this a safe, genuine place to make friends.
If you read betweens the line, it actually says: We just wanna charge you for using the service.
No big deal, since they charging money, might as well stick to Friendster lor. Haha. Anyway I din log in for many mth liao. haha.
Oh wait…. now i know why….
WhoLivesNearYou is operated by a small team of people and jointly partnered with Pacific Internet Ltd, a Nasdaq listed Company. The team constantly work to recreate the Site with interesting ways to connect your neighbourhood. We certainly hope that you will enjoy the service for many years to come. You can expect quarterly updates that present either new or updated features.
