Global Reunion Site Launches: Kiwis Wanted
18th December 2001
A website aimed at reuniting people world wide with old school and workmates - www.worldfriends.info - has gone live in New Zealand.
www.worldfriends.info – the world's first global seek and find website enabling people to search for lost friends across the world using a variety of criteria and keywords – is targeting New Zealanders as a key market, because as Press Officer David Owens commented: “New Zealanders are the most travelled nation on earth and are the most likely to have lost contact with old friends
Subscribers complete a quick and easy basic registration process on the site and, once registered will be able to provide as much, or as little, information about themselves as they desire and begin their searching.
Another feature of the site, which will be particularly useful for Kiwis planning overseas trips is the e-penfriend facility. This enables subscribers to meet like-minded individuals in the countries or towns they plan to visit by using keywords to attract others with similar hobbies or interests.
Development Manager Paul Kallaway commented, “If everyone realises the true potential of this site it will become the biggest site on the web. If you look at published statistics the school and country based websites in both the UK and the USA are constantly in the Top Ten visited sites in their country of origin. We are offering the same, but on a global scale, and with many more search levels than just the schools reunion facility ".
