Members can invite friends to join them on Snabbo by adding their friend's email address. We utilize an import contacts feature to help you find friends and/or other members. We make it easy for you to invite people from your email address books to join you on our Site. At your request, we will search your email address book(s) to help you select and import your contacts to our site. You can also enter your friends' email addresses manually. If you choose to import contacts, we will use the credentials you enter only for the purpose of importing your contacts; we will not store them or use them for any other purpose.
The "Find Friends You Email" feature allows you to search for Snabbo members by their email address. Clicking on the "Import Email Contacts" link will allow you to view your contacts on the right hand side of the page. The contacts appear pre-selected by a check mark. You may uncheck any contacts and only those that remain checked will be searched for. Once the search results appear, you may send a private message to the Snabbo member you have found. This message will appear on their "My Home Page".
The "Invite Friends" feature displays a list of your current friends so you can send a personal message to the email address they provided when they registered with Snabbo. You may also invite friends to join Snabbo by utilizing the "Import Email Contacts" or manually enter your friends' addresses. Contacts you add will appear to the right. Only those that you check will receive the invitation. You may also enter a personal message to send along with the invitation. Your message will be signed automatically using your Snabbo username. You may want to more clearly identify yourself in the invitation by including your real name as it is known by the recipients.
The "Find Friends" feature of Snabbo is unique from other social networks. The extensive personal information provided by our Snabbo members will allow more friends to reconnect through a variety of options in our searchable database. Here are the highlights of how this feature operates:
