Classmates.com is a social network service created in 1995 by Randy Conrads who founded Classmates Online, Inc. The social media website helps members find, connect and keep in touch with friends and acquaintances from throughout their lives including kindergarten, primary school, high school, college, work and the United States military. The userc can create their profiles and browse the catalog of graduates from the same school to create connections with friends from the past. Users register under their real names, and not internet nicknames, so the privacy of their data is protected by a double-blind email system, so noone has acces to details, unless the user decides to make them public. The besic membership is free, but premium accounts cost from $9.99 to $39.99, and many users find the policy of automatic subscribtion renewal to be controversial.
