Following ITV's sale of the site to DC Thomson's Brightsolid subsidiary in 2009, the company relaunched Friends Reunited in March 2012 with a new emphasis on nostalgia and memories.
Ex-Financial Times executive Michael Murphy was brought into Friends Reunited as the new chief executive in 2005 and the similar web site School Friends Australia & Findakiwi New Zealand was rebranded and merged with the UK site.
Friends Reunited was a portfolio of social networking websites based upon the themes of reunion with research, dating and job-hunting.
The first and eponymous website was created by a husband and wife team in the classic back bedroom internet start-up; it was the first online social network to achieve prominence in Britain, and it weathered the dotcom bust.
Formerly, the site cost £7.50 per year to use but it was later free of charge.
The main Friends Reunited site aimed to reunite people who had in common a school, university, address, workplace, sports club or armed service; the sister site Genes Reunited enabled members to pool their family trees and identify common ancestors; the Dating and Jobs sister sites linked members with similar attributes, interests and/or locations.They even got MS-DOS support with floppy disks via an adapter.There is also talks of trying to get Sega Saturn support as well as a few other CD based consoles.
