Friends Reunited, one of the early Social Network to break the UK has been relaunched, now inviting users to sign up for its new “memories” based service.
Friends reunited began in 2000, and was bought by ITV in 2005 for £175m, only to be sold 4 years later for £25.6m to publishing group Brightsolid in 2005.
Welcome-to-Friends-Reunited.jpgFriends reunited were once the darling Social Media site in the UK, but was later overtaken by sites MySpace, and then Facebook.
Friends Reunited is hoping that a host of professional archive content, coupled with users’ own material will help make Friends Reunited the choice of Social network for people looking for nostalgia.
The site has teamed up with the Press Associated and the British Library to allow users to attach articles, newspaper clippings and other materials to their own “memory box”.
Your memory box can then be shared with your friends not just across Friends Reunited, but also across other social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
The Friends Reunited team believe they have identified a gap in the market, which was highlighted by the recent success of Pinterest, where people curate content that is important to them.
