With over nine million members and a database of over 60,000 current and former UK primary and secondary schools, colleges, universities, workplaces, clubs and military forces, FriendsReunited has become the nation's favourite website.
Driven by curiosity, nostalgia and the need to reconnect or compare with peers, new visitors are invited to find their schools and add their names and email addresses to the list of former pupils already registered, and get in touch with old friends or look for family in this country and abroad.
This book is the account of what went into making the business: the hard work and the sleepless nights; how husband-and-wife team Julie and Steve Pankhurst set up the website in their suburban bedroom because Julie, pregnant at the time, wanted to find old friends and Steve, an IT expert, together with business-partner Jason, was able to build a site to help her in her quest. The rest is history.
