A bit gutted about this. When i first started using this site pretty much everything was free, now the best feature will have to be paid for. I have a feeling that a lot of people will stop using this site because the compromise of a few adverts instead of paying, is one i was always happy with! if the adverts are too much and always getting in the way of the site i would say fair enough, but they can be easily be ignored if preferred!

Sort it out please POF else the majority will go elsewhere.

Just come all the way out of the closet and make this a fully paid site. It's clearly heading that way so stop taking the p*ss by pretending anything otherwise.

This is a terrible move! this site is slowly becoming the kind of site it set out not to be. The viewed me feature was very useful, as it gave you an idea if your profile was generating interest, and it was one of the things that made this site fun! It was bad enough when they removed the ability to see if your messages had been read or unread. Bring back all these features and make it a truly FREE site! I don't care about adverts they do not bother me at all.

Deleting my profile as of now. I won't stand by and allow greed like this to consume what was an otherwise pleasant experience.

This site is junk lately anyway and going down hill faster every day. I'm pretty much done with it after this decision.

Money hungry grubs. I didn't mind the ad's because it kept the site free. If I'm going to pay for a site, I'll go to one that starts with an "eharmon" as it is a much better site.

Yup, I'll be deleting my account in a couple of day unless some of the features as returned to the "Free" state.

This site is a joke now. It's no more "Free" then match, lavalife, eharmony, etc.

Free Online Dating.
Is that not your slogan. Well soon no one will be here because it will be like all the pay sites.
I'd rather see a few ads then pay for features you took away.

Bad business move.

Remember that we are the largest 100% free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate.

lies u see that right 100% free yea right

I've suggested a boycott!!
I will be leaving this site if this service is not restored. I encourage all users to join with me. This isn't the only game in town.
Of course as a user I can have an opinion on this! I am voting with my time and with what pof wants, my money! Lol!

So much for this being a free site. I am so disppointed in POF. We have to PAY to just be able to see if someone has read our email??!! WTF?!

I have always referred people to POF saying its a great site. My opinion has changed.

This really pisses me off!!

Anyone else??

Disgusted.

That's the best way I can describe how I feel right now. Why you feel you need to charge the users - the SAME users that made you the most successful site out there - for every little thing that you already gave them free access for years is beyond me. There are PLENTY of other ways to make money, such as click-through advertising that would net you MUCH more than what you are expecting to gain, and wouldn't upset anyone in the process. Instead you will alienate your users and lose trust in the community.

Thankfully there are plenty of other sites (like , DateHookup) that watch and learn from your mistakes, then offer TRULY 100% free access ...

Good going.

I've seen a few girls profiles in my area raging over this removal and came here to look. LoL it isn't that bad; take it as a signal to use your reliance on the viewedme section and turn it into a more extroverted/risk taking approach to online dating. No matter what this site has the largest user base so anywhere else you go you'll be disappointed. Send more messages out; and ones that have actual content to them.


Agree wholeheartedly with the above. You want to establish a connection with someone? Message them.

To me, the "Viewed Me" feature was all style, with no substance. If you looked at my profile and didn't take the time to drop me a line...you're just not that into me.

**Paid Viewed Me DECREASES your profile views if you are a paid user**

Point #1) Everyone can tell when you are a paying member because you will have a gold dot under your image in the horizontal bars, and you will have a gold background in search results.

Point #2) Non-paying users know that if they click you as a paid user, you will be able to see that they viewed you. And they know that they will not be able to tell if you viewed them or not, which makes them feel vulnerable.

Conclusion) This will REDUCE the amount of non-paying users who view paid user profiles because they will feel more comfortable viewing those who cannot tell, because they themselves cannot tell if they received a return view.

**DO NOT UPGRADE FOR THIS**

I have already experienced a drastic reduction in emails due to the gold dot/background stigma created by this new charge for Viewed Me.
