The specifics can be read on your homepage. The more you use the site, the more points you can collect.

How User-Friendly is The Website?Website Interface & Usability:

The website layout is the same as most of the other websites in the Friend Finder network. So if you've used any of the others before, you'll have no problem finding your way around this one.

The interface is mainly blue and white. The text size is very clear and of a good size so reading profiles shouldn't be a problem. On the subject of profiles, the thumbnails shown whilst browsing members (at the time of writing) are rather small and could be enlarged.

If you haven't used a FriendFinder website before then the main features are shown across the top and bottom of each page for easy navigation. Using them soon becomes second nature and most of your important profile related features are located on your homepage section for ease of use.

The signup process is only 2 pages long, short and sweet, the way we like it. You can also edit your profile at any time after sign up if you fluff it up.

Main Description of Dating Site.Site

FrenchFriendFinder is the French specific web site of the FriendFinder network. It has thousands of French and French speaking members from around the world. It is specifically aimed at creating a French online community and for the most part has succeeded in doing this very well. Here are a few quote from the site itself, describing what it's all about:

What is The Purpose of FrenchFriendFinder ?

"The purpose of the French FriendFinder site is to make it as easy as possible for you to meet people, using the power of the Internet. At French FriendFinder, you'll find a community of people using the site as a tool to make connections and find partners for dating, romance, friendship, and a variety of encounters.

If you decide you want to speed up your search, consider one of our premium memberships. Premium memberships offer far more privileges and cost as little as 25 cents (or less!) per day."

These Features Get A Thumbs Up :-)Pro's

What we liked about the site:

A website with lots of features (for it's paying members) and a strong sense of friends and an online community. This is due to its relationship magazine, friends network, video technology, testimonials, chat rooms, events for friends and personal photo galleries.

A basic member gets access to chat rooms, photo browsing, flirting with instant messaging and full access to the members magazine.

Writing profiles is one of the trickiest things to do when joining an online dating site. FrenchFriendFinder and all of the other FriendFinder websites give you tips, help and examples of what to say when joining up. This is something other sites don't do.

The sign-up process is only 2 pages long, short and sweet, the way we like it. You can also edit your profile at any time after sign up if you fluff it up.

If you're serious about using the site, the points system can be used to get access to premium member features (for a limited time) without having to pay the full membership. This helps to counteract the limitations of the basic membership account.

These Features Get A Thumbs Down :-(Con's

What we didn't like about the site:

Thumbnail images are too small for basic members, there's no point giving you the option to add members to your hotlist if you can't make out what they look like.

Basic members do not have access to full member profiles : ( which we think is a bit too restrictive when trying to get a feel for the site and what it has to offer. There are many sites out there that let you view members profiles with a basic membership account. This issue is true for the other FriendFinder sites we've looked at with the exception of FriendFinder's 'friend' section.

But if you become a full paying member you have access to all features. Also if you use the points system you should be able to generate enough to try out some of the more advanced features. If you generate enough points you can get one month of silver or gold membership for free. Pretty cool. You can also do this on the other FriendFinder websites.

Well, Overall What Did We Think of The Site?Overall Verdict:

If you're a full paying member, this is an excellent site with lots of features and a strong sense of community. All or most members are French and there are thousands of them from all over the world. So if that's what you're looking for, then this is the website for you. This reviewer doesn't speak French and was quite lost in the chat rooms until I was able to find someone that spoke English. Which didn't take too long.

This is an above average site with excellent features. Even with a few minor niggles it's still good enough to get 4 stars out of five. The restrictions on the basic membership account are canceled out somewhat when you use the points system to get access to the more advanced features for a limited time. This helps the whole 'try before you buy' experience and once again encourages the promotion of the 'online community' experience and interaction with others.
