Is a Place to Make Friends?

by Joseph

Do you ever think about what happened to your high school sweetheart? What about that best friend that you haven't contacted in years? If you have thought about them, you may have tried to get in touch. Sadly, many people have gotten married or moved away. This can make it hard to find those that you used to be close with. That is unless you sign up at one of the most popular social networking websites on the web. That site is called Classmates.

Though Classmates is thought to be a social networking website, it has features that are unique to the others out there. This is due to the fact that the site focuses more on making connections to old friends from high, middle, or even elementary school. Although it is designed to allow you to contact people from the past, you can talk to anyone on the site. This is just one benefit that makes Classmates a social networking site that you should join.

The one problem that many people on the Internet have with Classmates is that you will need a paid membership for most features. There is a free option available, but it severely limits what you can take advantage of on the website. Though you have to become a paid member to fully enjoy Classmates, you should know that it is worth it. Also, the membership fee is very affordable. There are currently three different levels of membership to the site, with the highest only costing you 5 bucks a month.

To learn more about what Classmates has to offer its members, you can visit their site at When you land on the main page of the site, you will first select your school. You will then be taken to a page to create your user profile. This profile is what will be displayed on the site. Once you become a member, you will be able to add more information about yourself to your profile.

The free membership lets you post your profile and view profiles of other members. Viewing the profiles of anyone, especially those you went to school with, is simple. Classmates, separates everyone into categories. These classifications are not just about the schools everyone went to, but also the years they attended. This means that regardless of your graduation date, you should be able to find information on your previous classmates.

Though you can view profiles with a free membership, you cannot contact anyone. You must be a paid membership to make contact on the site. When you pay to be a member, you will be able to contact anyone as well as submit messages to everyone you attended school with. Paid memberships also allow you to use the message boards.

By signing up at Classmates, you will not only be able to contact old friends, but you may also be able to renew friendships and make new ones. What could be better than rekindling friendships as well as making new friends?
