Plenty Of Fish is one of the world's largest free online dating services, and is also one of the most popular social communities in the world by number of visitors.
It has its strongest following in Canada and the U.
S, but is growing in the UK and other parts of Europe.
Plentyof Fish has increased their security early in 2011 due to several hacker attacks. They require you to choose a password that is so complicated that you're bound to forget it.If you think your usual assortment of passwords is good enough think again or you will be facing the “your password is too weak” page on more than one occasion.Also, pray that they don't think your IP is from one of the countries they have banned.It took my borrowing a friend's computer to get signed up because for some reason Plentyof Fish was convinced I was located in a banned African country 3,000 miles away from my current location.Once you do manage to get signed up expect to spend a fair amount of time filling out forms ranging from basic profile questions to a chemistry test.In addition, the site requires new joiners to upload a face photo or risk being banned.This might not be the best for those of us that are shy, but they do have an option to make pictures private.So you've somehow managed to duck security, get in, and not get banned for forgetting a part of your profile. You will find that Plentyof Fish is a self-policing community for the most part.That means if a person has been reported for asking for sex then everyone on the site can block them simply by clicking the button that says to block those that have been reported.It also means that anyone with pictures of their private regions will be banned from the site.At this point, you're likely either feeling really safe or like the place is run by an overzealous prison guard, or a bit of both.
