Freecycling

Fighting for freerecyling

All you have to do is…

TFN claim “ownership” of their groups and their members.  How can they do this when according to, for example, Menifee’s groups website, “all you have to do is sign up for a yahoo account”.  There is no mention ever on any TFN site, including their own about signing up for a TFN account.  There is no need for anyone ever to go to the main TFN website, ever again.  If you look at the Alexa statistics for website visits this is baked up for their stats for TFN. These are at best stagnant and given the constant rise of groups and membership you would might naively have thought the opposite was likely.

If anyone, apart from the group themselves can claim “ownership” of these groups and members it is Yahoo.  So next time you read “The Freecycle Network has xxxx groups and yyyy members”, just think about what that statement is saying.
