Freegle passes the million user mark!
Yahoo’s recent maintenance seems to be paying dividends in that a search on Yahoo Groups for “freegle” works now, whereas my guess is in years gone by it would have taken a few days to get any sensible answer. What is returned so far is that 194 UK groups have left TFN.
Now, using crude maths, if we assume 5,000 members as an average group size then that probably means that there are nearly a million users Freegle and a million less using freecycle.
I am very grateful particularly to the Chatham group which explains something of how the word freegle possibly came about – Free Giving Locally & Easily. Very nice.
