Friends Reunited and the old Alma Mater

I imagine that most people will be aware that the Friends Reunited website http://www.friendsreunited.co.uk/ is due to close very soon, so this is a timely reminder to go to the site, log on, which you can do with your Facebook account, and copy any information and pictures that you may want to keep from there.

The email, if you got one, from Friends Reunited says “We do recognise that people have a lot of old photos within their profiles on the site. We will therefore provide a link to allow you to login and download your photos.” But it looks like this won’t apply to photos of your old schools that other people have uploaded to the site.

Obviously old schools have Facebook groups and a lot of the information on Friends Reunited will have been copied across to those Facebook groups, however I found that with my old schools there was quite a bit that hadn’t, including my old school song – so politically incorrect as not to appear anywhere else on the internet.   

The pictures in this post are of my old school http://www.treloar.org.uk/

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
