It has been a wild, sexy, and very interesting journey! I will miss your company and working with you all, but I have decided to leave the company and venture beyond the horizon. My final day is Friday, July 18th.

It has been an amazing experience being involved with the community here. Without hesitation, I have to say that you guys have been the best community I've had the pleasure of being a part of. We've been through a lot of fun times together, which makes it difficult to let you know that I'll be leaving, but I believe the community is headed in the right direction and is in good hands with Andrew back at the helm.

Thank you to all of you for your support during the last three years. I have truly enjoyed readings your passionate thoughts, engaging in hearty debates, and learning as much as I have from each and every one of you. I will treasure this enduringly.

Keep fighting the good fight! Keep up with site updates and discuss issues with Andrew and SiteSupport.

Thank you all for the great times and memories. I appreciate it so much and will miss everyone! Feel free to message me in the next few days if you'd like to keep in touch.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Some info about Top Fans
Posted:Jun 30, 2014 11:59 am
Last Updated:Jul 7, 2014 1:45 pm

The Top Fans program has been added to the site as a way to help members interact with anyone they like on the site and earn benefits while doing it.

By bidding points on members you like, you'll stand out not only to them, but receive added visibility across the site.

Top Fan benefits:

Standard members have the ability to gain free features, like viewing profiles, based on ranking.

i. Rank #1 unlocks all abilities on the table below
ii. Rank #2-10 unlocks all benefits except Contacting, messaging, flirting, or sending friend request



While Gold members already enjoy full access to all features on the site, they can also benefit by receiving added visibility to the members they like as well as more visibility across the site. This is especially useful for male members who want to stand out, especially when women get tons of emails every day. Gold members who rank in the top 10 will receive:

i. Top Fan Notifications
ii. Top Fans Profile Badge
iii. Profile Fan list/Leaderboard Visibility

The program is available to member's of all levels. You can opt out if you don't want to participate.

Daily Login Rewards

Members can earn rewards for logging into the site daily. Simply log on once every 24 hours for a maximum value of 35 points per day.

First-Time Bidder Rewards

Users will be rewarded points for making the first-time bid on a member profile. You can receive points for first-time bids a maximum of 3 times per day.

For a complete look at information and rules, please visit URL: http://AdultFriendFinder.com=TOP_FANS_PROGRAM

So let us know your thoughts! Have you played yet, or do you plan on playing Top Fans? Are there any problems you're experiencing while trying to play? Your feedback is always appreciated.

Thanks, everyone!

We’ve redesigned the mobile IM on AdultFriendFinder by updating the design, improving the functionality, and making it match the desktop IM behavior more closely.

Main IM Page



(1) This is the Filters button (see Filters* below)
(3) Clicking either the member cell or the chat icon will load the chat window
(4) Username Search: Type in a username and search to see if that user is available to chat
(5) Click Next to view 10 more users

(Filters*)



Friends Tab



The “Friends” view shows a list of all that user’s friends who are available to chat.

-There is no filter on this tab.

-All interaction behavior is the same as on the “Online” tab.

-When there are no friends online, it will say “Friends (0)”
And the text “No friends are online”

Chats Tab



(1) The “Edit” allows users to Ignore, Block, and Delete the chat cell row
(2) The Chat tab is separated by the following:
• All (refers to all the types of chats)
• Incoming (refers new and unread chat requests)
• Sent (refers to chats you have replied and not received a response)
• Active (refers to chats that you have replied to and are currently chatting with someone)
(3) These are new incoming chats and are designated by the bright blue count bubble
(4) These chats are either ‘sent chats’ or active chats where you are the last person to reply

Chat Window



This is the default chat window
-Member’s own posts appear on the right in blue
-User you are chatting with appears on left in grey.

Chat Interactions:
1. By clicking on the thumb in the top right corner, user can see more options:



2. These are the interaction options:



After you've spent some time checking it out, let us know what you think! We'd love to hear your feedback

Photo Management Enhancements!
Posted:Apr 16, 2014 6:33 pm
Last Updated:May 5, 2014 12:36 pm

Hey everyone,

We recently upgraded our photo management tool for easier uploads and enhanced editing functionality.

Drag & Drop Photo and Video Uploads:

To upload photos and videos, just simply drag and drop the file from your hard-drive onto the photo (or video) management page:



Editing Tools:

In addition to drag and drop uploads, you now have different tools to edit your photo right from your photo management page. You can rotate photos, change the brightness of your images, crop them, and even draw on them (which is handy if you would like to keep your face hidden!). We think these will be very useful tools for our members.

Please keep in mind that you may experience some unexpected bugs, but your feedback here will go straight to developers who will be working on implementing fixes.

Note: To use all of the new upload and editing features, you will need a browser that is less than 3-4 years old.

In our mission to crackdown on spammers, we have added a "Mark as Spam" button to the Message Center.

To remove spam from your inbox:

1. Select the message you would like to report.

2. Hover over the Mark as Spam button between the existing Report Abuse and Trash buttons.



3. Clicking Mark as Spam will display a confirmation popup requiring you to click Yes or No.



4. After clicking Yes, you will see a confirmation message.

We have also begun informing members to limit sharing personal contact information in the first message to another member. Initial messages with phone numbers, email addresses, or addresses will not be forwarded to the intended party.

We continue to work towards elevating our process in fighting spam to minimize the negative impact it has on our users' experience. When you mark a message as spam, you are not only helping us combat those annoying messages, but also helping improve the genuine community that exists here at AdultFriendFinder.

Happy Thanksgiving, AdultFriendFinder :)

I wanted to take a moment and dedicate this post to the awesome community members at AdultFriendFinder. I have grown very close to so many of you, and I am so thankful to be able to work with a group of people who are so dedicated, open, and awesome. To the members who have stuck with me even when things get shaky, and are always positive, extremely helpful, and thoughtful -- THANK YOU! You guys are the best.

I love being able to be a part of this place where my days are full of kind folks, awesome writers, funny story tellers, and overall creative and hot people who are spectacular in so many ways.

For the Thanksgiving holiday, I will be out of the office to spend time with my family, but will be back here on Monday to rejoin my AdultFriendFinder fam. I hope all of you always have the opportunity to spend this time or any chance you get to be with your family, friends, and all the special people in your life. For a lot of us, those people include members from this community that we get to experience day-to-day on this site.

Thank you again to everyone who makes me really cherish my time here with you. I'm grateful for that and appreciate it very much. I wish you all the very best in every day, full of positivity and light and wonder.

Much love, everyone! See you on Monday!

Popularity Privileges Are Back
Posted:Nov 26, 2013 4:59 pm
Last Updated:Apr 25, 2014 9:54 am
447034 Views

The Popularity Privilege Program is back. For those who remember the program in the past, any users with a certain number of profile views per day were given premium membership benefits.

As of last night, this program has been updated and is available again to all members of the site.

What are Popularity Privileges?
Popularity Privileges is a free Gold membership based on how many unique profile views a member gets from other members. It's tabulated every two weeks.

How many profile views do I need to gain the privileges?
This number is secret sauce!

How do I know if I've received Popularity Privileges or am close to receiving them?
Users who are nearing the view threshold will have a notice sent to their registered emails.

What do I get with Popularity Privileges?
Members who receive a certain number of unique profile views will be upgraded to 2-weeks of free Gold membership. The member may stay in the program and have their Gold extended with continued profile views.

Many Standard members may have already found they were upgraded since yesterday, and we expect many more upgrades to be given moving forward.
