Does anyone think the admins are actually listening to any of us? Or care?

Instead of taking away from the site, sell ads and boost your security, so we don't ahve to put up with trolls from other sites stealing our pictures, bios, and sexually harrassing the women of PoF like that body building site just did.

well i am done here. i am not really surprised that when you delete your account here, and you fill out why you are deleting, they do not have the option of saying, not happy having to pay for all this stuff on a free site.
good luck to everyone. i am going to try to do this the old fashioned way and try the grocery store. at least if i have to spend money, i know i will be getting something worth while there. :\

Suppose you chose to try the upgrade then later decided against it. There is no where on this site to cancel the automatic billing. I assume you can call POF but do you really think anyone will answer the phone?

I seriously think the paid viewed me feature will be the downfall of this site. The only reason it has millions of users is because it has always been advertises as being completely "free". That is why I joined, I'm not gonna pay a dime to use this site.

But as long as you can still send or receive messages i'll stay. Viewed me being gone isn't that big of a deal to me anyway. As long as the core features stay. But i'm getting the sense the site will soon move to a paid model.

The only way the owner will listen is by you showing your outrage with your business not your whining. leave the site, don't come on as much money speaks louder then words on these sites.

I'm already a member of ok cupid, and date hookup, superb alternatives.

"You've got to spend money to make money", said the prostitute that just upgraded her membership .....

this post might get deleted, but at least maybe a few people will see it, and their frowns will be turned upside down for a minute.

I thought it was free too. That's why I joined. Now every feature will be charged for just like the other sites. At least they don't claim to be free

POF will never remove advertising because it's addicted to the ad revenue.

Removing Viewed Me kills the interactive functionality. Why spend my time with POF.com, when it doesn't work? POF should stay with its original business model and not get greedy.

I have a Match.com account, but I'm not interested in another pay account.

Your decision to remove View Me is great for Match.com, because now I have to keep the Match.com account active.

I have no intention to upgrade my POF.com account; no confidence, you consistently over-promise and under-deliver.

If this site isn't making enough off the ad's instead of taking away a feature to try to lure us into paying for this site, maybe you should take a look at the ad's being posted. I mean seriously who is going to believe an ad that says "Hot Asian women love fat men". Seriously who is going to fall for that?

Wrong thing to do! If I have to pay I will resort to the old fashion way. Oh by the way, why isn't advertising gone. That's your reasoning for us to see who viewed.......

Does anyone know where I can find a good, preferably free, online site?

I also am thinking about joining another site and won't mind so much if there is a small fee?

Can anyone recommend a good Paid Membership dating site is?

Bad idea. I like this site less and less. POF just pounded another nail in it's coffin.

My free account with "okay c u p i d" .com is working great, nice selection. I don't mind the ads, I'm switching.

Don't be so greedy POF.com.

There is another site called "Oceans of People" i signed up there and .I'm giving POF till tomorrow to change back or i'm going to delete my profile. I thought something was up when my matches werent matching up with anywhrer close to me or anyone who matched my interests at all. I hope alot of other people pick tomorrow as a day to go else where, So that they'll maybe understand the gravity of the choice they made going from free to paysite overnight.

I don't have a problem with the builders of this site making money from it.

HOWEVER......making "view me" a pay feature renders this site virtually unusable unless I decide to become a paid member. The problem is, POF doesn't have the same level of functionality of many other dating sites. Result: if I have to pay, then I'll pay at another site that has more features!!

ehhh... signed up with OKC a couple days ago... already got WAAAY more responses then I have here in over a year...waaaay better sight with waaay better selection of potentials in my area...dunno why anyone would choose to stick around here....since I joined more and more has gone to a pay /upgrade side...never seen a site take away features and put them in a pay side.. usually if they want to charge they develop NEW features that entice people to join.. taking away existing features not only DOESN'T promote or entice..it pisses people off and, as the say, gets their back up to a point they WON'T EVER join...

The owners/managers should look at all the angry words about the "viewed me" feature and reconsider. This is my first ever post and my the first time I have looked for a place to express my opinion. I will be looking for alternates to POF if this policy does not change and very soon.

what do they care? if you don't like their decisions, you're free to leave at any time, which is what a lot of people seem to be doing now.

I wish they would have made the meet me thing pay instead. It's so useless!

Are you kidding me? Now you're going to charge for this too.??? Who in the hell cares about the advertisement??? Sounds more like 'GREED' to me. So much for being the 'Only free dating site' ah?????

omg the whining...! people, this site is still free and has always been , you don't like the pay features..leave!! i see it as a positive..i'm sick of people relying on this feature anyway instead of contacting me, they keep looking and looking at me, hoping i'll message them? waste of time..maybe now people will actually start messaging each other or at least add them to favorites rather than just looking.....yay!!!!
