My Review

I joined the fubar just over a month ago for the purposes of writing a review of the site here; in my review you will find things I liked about the site and things I didn't.

I am not sure if Fubar classes itself as a dating site or a social network site or both but if you want to meet a new love, or just looking for friends, fubar caters for everyone, it is easy to join and uploading pictures or images is very easy.

What I like about fubar

You start to earn points quite quickly and before long you move up in rankings, in one month I have reached level 8.

The quickest and best way to move up the rankings is to spend a lot of time on the site rating other users pictures and profiles, adding yourself as a fan and asking if you can become a friend, soon though you will have more friend requests than you send out.

A lot of people will invite you to their fubar lounges where you can chat with other fu members. You also get invites to play fubar games that are fun, and you get the chance to chat one on one.

There is a lot more to fubar than first meets the eye.

One of the best features of fubar is that you only need to share your pictures with whom you choose to apart from your main profile pic.

What I don't like about Fubar

There are only a couple of things about fubar that annoy me, although you can put filters in your profile to prevent them, there is an amazing amount of pornographic pictures in some peoples accounts.

Some comments and email you receive don't leave much to the imagination.

My experience with Fubar

I have been Honest and upfront in my profile, my profile picture is the same one that I have here on hubpages. I have stated that I am married and that I am looking for friends not a relationship or a fling.

When I first joined fubar, I started making new friends quickly people who rated my profile and pictures because I rated theirs.

I have had a couple of people who have down rated my profile but that is nothing to worry about. All went well for a few days before I received my first of many emails offering sexual favours mostly from women but a couple from men too, threesomes with me and my wife were on offer from people of all ages. Maybe if I were into that kind of thing I would have been in heaven lol.

But no thank you your mail has been deleted and forgotten about.

P.s I don't want to be your master and I don't want you to dominate me either lol.

Fubar can be fun and give your ego a must needed boost, but there are people on the site who reek of desperation, read their profiles please rate me, please show me love, please rate my pics I don't know if they are desperate to be loved or if they just want to move up another rank.

I have had fun, I have had a laugh and I have enjoyed most of my fubar experience.

Overall

Fubar is fun, I have met some really nice people on the site and have enjoyed it, beware of the swingers and the perverts but the same can be said of any dating or social network site, use it for your needs whether you want to make new friends or find love, whatever your reasons for joining just have fun.

About fubar.com

Can you handle the FU?

http://www.fubar.com advertises itself as an online bar and happy hour.

It is a social network site, where you can meet new people from all over the world, share your thoughts, pictures, videos, music, and you can blog on the site until your heart is content.

When you first join Fubar you are limited to the features that you can use on the site, but with the points system you can soon use more and more of the sites features, the more points that you earn the more features you get, add more photo's pimp your profile page, add html in your comments and much more to boot.

Points are scored each time you rate someone else's profile, photos, blog or stash and when someone rates yours, you can use the points to buy virtual gifts for other users such as a drink at the bar, a birthday card or many others.

Point Scoring

  • Rate a photo
  • Leave a photo comment
  • Upload a photo
  • Leave a comment
  • Change your trackz
  • Rate a member's profile
  • Upload a mobile photo
  • Someone becomes your fan
  • Someone adds you as a friend
  • Take someone's cherry comment
  • Configure your mobile phone
  • Configure your trackz
  • Upload a stash item
  • Rate a stash item
  • Comment on a stash item
  • Successfully invite someone to join fubar (500 points each)
  • Stop by the fuBank and participate in one of the product offerings.

  • VIP- members earn $10,000 fuBucks signing bonus! (See details about more benefits under the VIP description and learn how you can earn even more points and special gifts!)

Ranking

With Points you also earn a new rank when you first sign up your rank will be Fresh meat, and there are 25 more ranks to achieve as you climb up the Fubar ladder to become a Fubar Godfather. There are some ranks that I think are unachievable because I think you have to be a member of the Fubar staff team to get them. Remember though you cannot pass level 10 without a salute pic, that is a picture of you with your fubar id written on either a piece of paper or a part of your body.

Fubar Bouncers

A community volunteer who helps keep fubar a safe and clean place to hangout.

Fubar lounges

You can also open your own fubar lounge where your friend and people who share your interest can come in and have a good chat together.

Games there are games on the site that you can invite other fubar members to play with you.

Another Fubar New Member 8 years ago

I joined Fubar, because, as a web developer, I have been pobndering creating a social networking sites resemmbling the old dating BBS's which were regional online communities, since they were accessed by phone modem before the internet. There were even monthly meetups, where all members met in person.

Fubar falls way short of the simple and effective layour of those dearly missed BBS's of old. The web features are excessively complex and glittery, but proper web design could fix that, There's is no way to localize (except searching every time), and the shoutbox is awkward. The comments people leave are usually plain silly images or invite you to join sex clubs.

Someone is getting rich with all the stupid affiliate stuff. Take a survey that promises Fubucks, and go through pages and pages of offers. I don't need more spam, so I turned down all offers, and took a long time to get to the totally ridiculous survey end, and never received my Fubucks.

Fubar is nothing but a money making machine that poses as a social networking site. I doubt many real relationships or friendships are ever made. A lot of silliness, unreadable profiles (due to ugly animated backgrounds)

Now I know I do not have to worry about this competition should I decide to make my own REAL networking site, complete with real person meetups.)

Remember the old saying.. Keep It Simple Stupid. If there was silly rating of everything there, perhaps it could turn into a real social site.

I have been a member of Fubar.com for a few months and have met some REALLY GREAT people. Both local and WORLD wide. I have been reunited with some acquaintenances I had thought moved. You can easily become addicted to FuBar if you are a student of human behavior as I am. Reading peoples personal profiles, chatting with people in a LIVE shoutbox (instant message box within the site), listening to the music others like and even checkin out other peoples photos and photographic skills will give you a great look into other peoples lives if you look hard enough.

MySpace: Eat your Heart out!!! There are many more things to do on this site and you enjoy a much more user friendly interface.

ONLY THE EXPERIENCE of FuBar itself can give you the full impact of the capabilities and enjoyment that awaits you!!!

Bubba 8 years ago

I have been on the site for not quite a week and not sure what to make of the place and with all such places..People have their quirks about how they view what you say, and for the motivations of it..even by others words about themselves..you reflect on how others make statements in levity about themselves..but cannot go along with it..


Bubba 8 years ago

However..I want to add..The remark made was only upon one occasion and by one such individual, and I view as a Pure misunderstanding. I do not want to have it implied that I am making negative remarks about a place I have not experienced that much about and not YET even gotten to TALK with anyone except a few little comment boxes..The few that actually did talk in that manner were friendly in my opinion. It is our intention to stay and make friends as best as one can in any chat place. It helps us to participate with one another to view things from others perspectives, even if misunderstood ones. The problem with all such online friendships..and I have quite a few I have made that were enjoyable and some friends who have died in the years I have been on the internet..and their deaths touch me deeply. So I am willing to make a go of it, and try Never to judge someone solely because they badly reacted to hurt feelings or Feelings that lie buried inside themselves or because they label someone from the outset without explanation. The best thing in communication between people and the maturity of people is that they do not just rush off in a huff but think about their own reactions and ASK why they stated what they did. I do not pretend to understand why people dress provocatively, and display themselves in such a manner that some might take as improper behavior. Sometimes baring oneself is almost like the inward "baring" that most wish they could to another friend but never find themselves able to. People are loaded with inhibitions and emotional reactions from past and present experiences. People heal by forgiving and understanding, and evaluating the people new to their lives by only who they are..and that takes time.


dionysos 8 years ago

Fubar reminds me of a cleverly thought out pyramid scheme, that rewards members for social climbing and arse crawling. Everybody is trying to score fubucks and points in the hope of achieving VIP status. Those who want to be friends with you normaly have a hidden motive, especially if they are VIP's. It has a very commercial feel to it, with little genuine friendly value. I'm sure its a financial success for fubar, and perhaps that's all that really counts in the end. I didn't get much value from the experience

AngL 8 years ago

I have been a member of Fubar for 18 months and I love the site. I will say that is easily addictive if you are of the right personality. I will also say this, I have met my true love on there last year. He was over 7000 miles away in the Army in Iraq, and FuBar brought us together. I signed up with them when it was CherryTap and its been a wonderful experience. A place to go and get away from reality for a bit. There are some truly awesome people on there and have made quite a few long lasting friendships and in about 2 years, my love and I will wed. :) I recommend it!!!!


Missy 7 years ago

I was a member of fubar before it was actually fubar.. Back when it was actually called Cherry Tap. I loved the site then. They changed a lot of things when they switched from cherry tap to fubar, but it's still an amazing site to meet new people on. It doesn't matter if you're looking for a relationship or fling or just a friendship, you can find it on fubar. Almost every one that I have talked to since Cherry Tap started and switched over have been amazingly nice.

You will get the occasional spam message about sex offerings and such, but other than that they try really hard to keep the spamming out.

If you leave too many comments, you have to type in a code for the 'Bouncer ID' to make sure that you're not a computer.

They point system is pretty easy to figure out and it's extreamly easy to level up if you go on just once a day. My aunt goes on once a week and has only been a member for 2 months and she's on level 12.

They also don't delete your account no matter how long you don't sign in. I hadn't signed in in six months and my account was still there. Nothing had been bothered with. The only way the delete your account is if you're under the age of 18 and they find out, which my younger cousin found out the hard way.

She had signed up and it took them awhile to catch it, but she's only 16. She was on level 12 and they deleted her account.

You can send people 'drinks' as it is an online 'bar'. You can send cars, gifts, cakes for birthdays. There are a million things that you can do on the site. It's a truly amazing site just to go onto and forget about reality for awhile because it's easy to get caught up in the conversations at times. Over all, I would deffinently recommend this site to ANYONE over the age of 18. Practically my entire family has signed up for it.

They just started a way where you have to slow down on the rating of pictures or else the rate is ignored. Now, one has to rate once every 5 seconds-any faster and the rates will be ignored

fufu 7 years ago

hi jimmy(jimmythejock), thx for the gr8 review, and good info from the comments section 2. i was considering trying out ths site for meeting w/ good, real people to chat w/, games, or practice my russian; but sex dating and porn, no thx. i would have hoped that the host of a 'lounge' had ability to kick someone out if being very rude or jerk, or groupvote for that matter w/ a minimum #votes to pass(at least ths method used in 'orbz' game(game for children and adults fyi) for dealing w/ misfits, and has worked(don't use it much b/c the people are good and courteous, and very fun).

guess i'm old fashioned; i'll stick to chess online, cribbage online, orbz(online), though eyes remain open to trying something new(chats, games), but has to be decent(well mannered) fun; though, liked the idea of buying drinks like in bar ;)

re: commercialism, guess u have to require some source of funding to maintain a site, functions, and servers up. thx again,

?????????,

lisa

casunsets 7 years ago

I joined Fubar because my husband was always on it. I understand why now and it's a lot of fun. I think though that charging for some of the items at the prices they do is a little off the top. But i guess they need to keep the site going somehow. I laugh at some of the content in other people's profiles. Most are attention seekers. I rate and gift people with drinks when I see they need it. I don't expect anything back for it but all gifts and attentions are welcome.

PS it's always good to read a profile before trying to add someone as a friend.


Babs 7 years ago

What I dont like about Fubar is those who makes files of the so-called 'downraters and haters'..WAAAAAAAAAAH! So someone rated a pic less thana 10. so what!? All the whiney azz crybabies over there need to GROW UP. None of us is going to be a 10 in the eyes of everyone....

Worst. Site. Design. Ever!

I couldn't stay there for more than 5 minutes. The site design hurts my eyes. I had to leave before the onset of a migraine.

I know they're trying to be young and hip but, what a fine example of crappy design!


JohnRocksHard 7 years ago

Fubar is a joke! If you want to contribute to the man who started it then fine! But, realize when you sign up that you will be expected to pay for a lot on the site. It is not a requirement but out of peer pressure alone, if you do not pay for the "blings" and "VIP'S" then you simply do not fit in! Not to mention all the begging women on there that scream for happy hours to be bought for them (literally $100.00 a pop) seriously dudes...get a life!! There are other networking sites that do not charge! Fubar can pound sand..it's not a cool place!

susan 6 years ago

I was on fubar over two yrs..met my bf there other than that slowly i began to learn that for the most part there are very troubled individuals on the site owner included...i disagree it doesn't cost 100 for happy hour to keep a site running not to mention the other cost for blings etc,etc,it is a pyramid scheme of sorts and the owner is laughing all the way to the bank....as for so called bouncers that's all nonsense too...they get you when you rate too fast(sorry guess my computer is in better shape than most!)I was deleted due to disgruntled women who for whatever their reasons vendictive,addictive and stay on the site 24/7 that reeks trouble right there!!! and the begging from baby jesus well that is just too hilarious!! someone here said it is competitive,being VIP doesn't even matter....and most of all you cant trust their server...after my account was deleted (and it was for the best) the owner had the nerve to withdraw the VIP membership!!!! so as far as im concerned its a greedy site...it may have a few neat perks here and there but since it was cherry tap (As judge judy would say,keep it simple stupid!) it became a joke!! when u get to the point where your every waking moment is worrying about points, ranks etc while your baby is begging to be fed (as ive seen a lot of unemployed,lonely,desperate people on the site not to mention inspite of their stupid salute (anyone can snap a pic of someone and say its them!! how stupid could fu owner be?)their are undesirables there and ive met several over the course of two yrs that told me how hackable fubar is...your banking info is not private along with other things..now if your a couch potatoe, do not read,get out for air much fubar is the place to be...but beware its about the owner making money he could care less about his members!!

Bob 6 years ago

I had been a member on this site for a long time until recently, way back, I used to think it was a fun place to hang out, but as time has went on, it's now been taken over by a bunch of teens, or close to that age and it's now all about ranks, popularity contest, blings, pints, and all of that kind of thing, no one on there now days seem to be the least bit concerned about actually socializing on there any more!

I had grown bored and tired of this site for quite some time and hadn't been going on there much at all recently, but the reason I left wasn't even due to the bad social site it's turned into lately, but because of many, many situations I've had in trying to deal with the support staff and the people running the web site. No way can I detail all the instances of this, because they are massive, but let me say I have never had one single good experience anytime I had ever contacted their staff... of course most times they just ignored me when I tried to contact them!

I will give a warning to any who might think they want to try this site, the staff of this site are the biggest, arrogant jerks I have ever ran across. In every situation I had tried to talk with these folks, they come across in a manner like, you had better shut to hell up, and listen to our all-knowing wisdom (when we choose to honor you with our words), and do exactly as we say... and if you do this, and kiss our butts a whole lot too, we just MIGHT bless you with the privilege to allow you to be a member of our web site.... but we are going to mess with you a lot now because you have dared to question us in anyway!

My advice is to stay away from this site, it's the worse customer oriented site I have ever ran across, truly!


ex-fubar 6 years ago

I see several good comments on fubar.com. After being a member for several years my account was completely deleted. Their business practices are illegal! I purchased several grand worth of products from them without complaint. Then after a one situation with admin on the site I stopped the charges for a "vip". I contacted them asking for verification of the accusations none was provided. The only explanation they provided was for me to read their terms of service. I did follow all guidelines and went above this trying to resolve the matter. They also refused to allow me to use the products I have purchased or return the money of said products. We had several members of our household on fubar at the time & all measures was taken to prove we was real people and not fake accounts as accused. Our efforts was denied. We was then sent credit card authorizations from fubar.com. If our banks are approving these charges and no fraud reported then why should I be forced to send my credit information? Do you go into Walmart and file credit auths to buy a toothbrush? With one of their advisers being connected to paypal you would think that a cross checking of the credit cards in our house would validate as us not only being real but above the age of 18. I strongly suggest you look into their better business rating before conducting any transactions!

I was a member of fubar.com from the time it was LostCherry and then CherryTap to Fubar and now a new admin of the site Eric accuses me of cheating on the game mafia and deletes my account because I would not lie and say he is right. Fubar.com is a site run by people with no social skills and if you email support you will get no response or help from anyone there. They act like kids running the site and should not be in charge of an adult site because they have no concept of what they are doing and just. They want to try to degrade the uses of the site and think they are above everyone else on the site because they are (admins) so you should kiss their a$$ and if you do not then they will delete your account and accuse you of violating terms of service and in the terms of service they have

fubar.com reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to reject, refuse to post or remove any posting (including email) by you, or to restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to all or any part of the Website and/or Services at any time, for any or no reason, with or without prior notice, and without liability.

They use this we can delete your account because we want to claws a lot so if you go to fubar.com do not waste your money on it because they will delete you even after you spend a lot of money and they do not care and will simply say because they can!

susan 6 years ago

since my friends last post here she has rejoined because the nicer members missed her as she has a sense of humor! and basically the only way as said by many here is not to purchase even my friends bank had a hard time with fubar as the phone # a year ago was just a phony # where you leave a message and no one replies, and bank made fubar replace the funds as her account was deleted by them and even though she put a stop to vip, baby j still withdrew the vip cost(14.95 anyway! that takes gaul!) the month after her account was deleted! if that's not greed i don't know what is and what can the better business bureau do to fubar administration to make them fly straight and stop playing games with people's hard earned money!since then i understand that fubar has had exposure with howard stern i don't know if that is anything to jump up and down about but we all know how howard stern can be i myself am not a fan, and i hear complaints from members of ordering shirts etc and not receiving merchandise i believe it is time for the better business bureau to look into all matters and demand that fubar owner not IP baby j devulge his financial books etc and look for any suspicious activity!...and who really owns fubar baby j or someone else that leaves much speculation i believe baby j is a slightly inexperienced IT and flunky who is left in charge while the owner collects and reaps the benefits in terms of money...i also have seen many changes he has added ranks making it harder to achieve next level. also added something called requirements which is the most childish thing i have ever heard of..meaning if you are at level 24 for example you have to get 3 buzzkills from a demon, 5 pimpin gifts and other reqirements before he permits you to level to next level! (remember this is the perogative of the members as to whether they want to help the member or not suggesting that the member even if they are already paying 14.95 for membership should beg?! to make someone join that is again pyramid )then level 25 requirement you must get at least one member to join, some people simply do not have friends that go for that kind of online hobby (as i disagree that it is a social site it is getting less and less friendly as time goes by its simply about ranks,,if you aren't a hotty or in hottness baby j does not respond as i've learned he does respond to some! (baby j has a new section click on settings and check off newness and you will see newbees,hotness,and people online..probably the only thing that does help a member with points) fubar in fact has had more tech problems since the site is crammed with a lot of junk...bullitins, a scrolling pimping out etc etc etc...i would like someone to investigate as to whether it is legal to force someone to have or intimidate a member into getting someone to join if they are already a paying vip or not because if you don't and u are a paying vip member and have reached the points but still cant get anyone to join what then? i would appreciate any feed back from anyone that reads the hub. and has any legal insight as to what to do (another words anyone here on the hub that has legal expertise,if u are a paying member can me make a member make someone else join and if not stay at the same level or is that an unlawful pyramid scheme? would like a reply soon and suggestion as to how to have a friend handle it if there should be a problem that arises! ty)other than deleting account which by the way he leaves deleted accounts up anyway(and folks are rating these dead profiles!! buying blings for someone who is no longer a member since he deleted without proper notice or legitmate reason!) and whether he is reaping the benefits or not is unbeknown but i suspect that somehow fubar is getting something out of it the only change is he lowered the happy hour to 50 dollars i believe unless he raised it ... gee did the economy going down the tanker give fubar a wake up call? as it is usually the same folks doing happy hour and auto 11s 35$ or so and blings prices vary depending on what gift you buy and other things are bought thru fubucks which can empty your fubucks leaving you to start all over again..greatful.....friend of a x member of fubar!!


Obsession 6 years ago

Hi I never posted here before but had to read your review of FUBAR I've been a member since it was cherrytap and I love this site I've made good friends and have a lot of fun as I work my way up the ranks so if your looking for a really cool site you should check out fubar and stop by and say hi:)


TooSweet 6 years ago

I'd like to say that your article was fair and objective in terms of the functionality and tools this site provides. I've been a fubar member for 3 years now and watched it as it changed from Cherry Tap to Lost Cherry. In the early days there's was way worse explicit content than what it has now. It's little to none although it's allowed since it's an adult oriented site. Key word adult here.. As with any site it's buyer beware in terms of some of the complaints here and on other various reviews, I've personally never had any harsh comments or favors asked of me on this site.

You simply ignore and block those users.. Duh right? Fubar is no different than any other main stream social network site. They appeal to a certain nitch audience and they in turn recruit their friends and others to join the site. It's survived on word of mouth, the site layout continues to evolve as they just updated the three layout choices this month.

Every site has it's ups and downs. Every site has questionable content. It's a matter of what you as a user choose to do with it. Take your time, explore the site, explore the features. Yeah the site is getting more complex and trying to add/experiment with various settings, etc. That's why I'm drawn to it. They continue to make improvements, they do what they can to ensure member safety. I ran into one snag in my account but it was a misunderstanding which was cleared up within a week.

I never lost my account nor did I experience any backlash. They have spam counter tactics with a CAPTCHA code system now which is frustrating when you're leveling your buddies out but it keeps the assholes off the site who truly spam and create garbage on the site.. I've made great friends off and on the site in my local area.

Point case of this ramble: Common Sense...

I have been on Fubar for 2 years on and off... Here is what I have gathered from the site... Ignore the perverts and block them first thing! Just like on any other social networking site they use the site as a tool for their sick little game! Only there they have a little more slack to get away with it because the bouncers and owners feel if they are annoying you there is the block button and that is true! After you get that out of the way you are off to the races! Women have better luck going through the ranks as men spoil the life out of them but hey that's real life too. Everyone is MADE to produce a Salute to show you are real this is a great feature and for the people that try to photo shop a fake picture try it It will still be rejected because it is gone over by a photo shop expert that also uses the site. The site is sort of slow right at first post your Salute and it will pick up. I have been to level 25 a total of 4 times now. The more you put yourself out there as in going into lounges and getting to know people the faster you will level. This site does have its down sides, but the simple fact is so does every site. Myspace----High school kids Facebook----Family based Fubar----Adult Based They have connected the site to facebook now so they are trying to tone down the skin showing on main pictures but it is member ran so if you think it shows to much mark it and it will be taken down. the site will only be as clean as the members want it to be. Thanks and Anyone feel free to add me... If you have a salute that is lol anyone can send me a message though if you find me here just give me a shout and I will hook you up with some tricks and tips

Fubar is like high school or a college sororiety/fratnerity on steroids. For one year, one "friend" bugged me about joining the site and signing up for an account. Of course, I obliged. It's amazing how you think you know a person/friend, and then realize how utterly idiotic they become after signing up for this site. Who knew having belonging to a "fam", having a four-letter word stuck anywhere on your log-on name would make someone such a badass? Well, seriously. It's either laughable or totally sad. But the Internet is what you make of it. If you can get over the animated morphed avatars, the senseless desperation of people wanting points and "bling", it's like any other social networking site: You get the lascivious conversations...and on a few rare occasions, you get people who actually have a gray/grey matter in their craniums, and they type/talk about something more than sex. Normally, those intelligent folks hang out on the MuMM pages for a good laugh. That's my two cents. Peace!

I think fubar is facebook plus myspace on crack! It goes so fast! Within the first 10mins of signing up i received 20+ friend requests, 6 photo comments, 13 drink things...I like it because facebook can be boring seeing the status of all the games that i don't play, and the famous what im doing "right nows" If you like a lot of things going on at once...this is site for you!

Another FuBar victim!!! ….Here is a site that's asked me to invite my friends and so I invited my co-workers, then we all get deleted with no reason / no warning

…, mind you ,I’m an artist and have done tons of art work for FuMembers and it all gets flushed away (just not fair) …….so I would still like to know why was I deleted and why wasn't I warned and why didn't I get a chance to save my art ?.........something fishy about fubar!!!

I have been a devout member of fubar.com for 4.5 yrs. As with any social networking site, you see the good, the bad and the ugly. Probably Fubar's greatest feature is personal admin, by which I mean not an acct you email, but real live supportive people who do truly care about you, so long as you approach them in a congenial manner. The site is full of lively, vibrant people who really just love to have fun. It's a place with it's own built in game and there's always something to do to interact with others. Unlike other sites, you are never stuck waiting for someone to respond. 5 yrs this July and going strong, I would recommend this site to people of all ages and tastes.

I see that some of you love fubar and some of you don't, I am one who doesn't care for it anymore. I have been a member since September of 2010 and I've encountered pretty much nothing but a hard time there other than the VERY FEW friends I made. One bad thing about this place is if you want to move up in rank (level up) you HAVE to spend money on ridiculous blings like Godmodes which are 100 credits (that's one) and give and get a certain amount of bling for achievement points which you also need to level. Oh and if you're looking for help don't ask the owners or bouncers because they don't give a crap as long as they're getting paid. You truly do have to pay to play there, and believe me it isn't cheap. The arrogant jackasses who own and operate fubar are little more than greedy (very) small business minions out to take you for everything you got, then censor you or block you if you try to speak up. My review is a big thumbs down and I'm actually a member there (but not for much longer as my vip expires in a few days), and if you are looking for a place to make REAL friends, look elsewhere because this isn't the one.

fubar is a game ... get out of it what you put into it. it is a social networking site too but is often confused with the game. relationships build here but honesty is the best way in any kind of situation like this to start out and no one will end up hurt. fu is fu and real is real...mix them and just be careful what you are doing.

i joined Fubar. but then after i logged out. it couldn't sign in anymore and i can no longer access my account. very annoying.


Basic 5 years ago

Another victim of unwarranted deletion. Yes I too seem to have had my account deleted with out a warning or notice as to why it was deleted. I have emailed their support address to inquire as to why the account was suddenly deleted and have yet to receive a reply and from what I have read on other complaint sites, I doubt I will ever hear back from them.

Seems the only time they respond to email complaints is when they try to rip people off that have spent money to purchase VIP membership, Happy Hour spots or Bling credits that were not received. Sure they will go through the motions to resolve the issue then after the funds clear and can't be stopped or reversed, they delete the members account and ignore any further inquiries from that member.

Anyway, as for my account being deleted, since I have not heard anything back from fubar support, I can only speculate that my account was trashed due to me stating my opinion towards their newest sham addition and exercising my freedom of speech.

They recently added a page for swimsuit contest which I noticed consisted of all new accounts(less than 3 days old), none of which had verified salute pictures, and a few that were not even swimsuit photos. Many of the photos in the contest look like they were swiped from professional models portfolio. Just out of curiosity, I decided to check the link to see how fubar members could enter the contest only to be redirected to a site totally unrelated to fubar with nothing to do with fubar swimsuit contest on the page I was sent to. Now according to the contest the winner is to receive all sorts of prizes but with what seemed to be mostly fake contestants, I was interested in knowing who the contest was really rigged for. I am also curious to know how much money fubar is getting for sending people to the other site through their bait and switch site redirect.

So I posted a comment on the contest page, posted a reply comment on a friends status message on their profile page, posted my opinion on my profile status and replied to another friends comment reply to my status. Then after a few minutes of chat with the latter mentioned friend, I am suddenly booted out of fubar and not able to log back in. So the conclusion is you can't exercise your freedom of speech on fubar which last time I checked the server IP is still an American based web site. Had my comments been a violation of the sites TOS or rules it would have been easy for them to delete my post and give me a warning. But since it is obvious that my post was truthful and revealing they felt threatened so much that they needed to delete my account to keep me quiet. Unfortunately for them they are limited to what I could say on their site but I am still free to voice my opinion pretty much anywhere else on the WWW that I can find.

Now I have been a member for over 2 years with a few months leave time after witnessing lots of drama in the lounge where I met many friends that initially got me hooked on the site. I returned last August and made many more new friends. I also noticed many changes since my leaving that made the site more enjoyable for a while. In November of 2010 they moved the site to a new server which seemed to create more problems and bugs in the system and many of the site features stopped working properly or at all.

When going to the support lounge to inquire about the buggy feature, they could only respond with a pre-programmed cookie cutter reply that “they were working on the problem” or they were totally unhelpful. Most of the time the staff in the support lounge were oblivious to the problems. Apparently on top of the inept staff in the support lounge, there is no clear line of communication between the lounge staff and programmer/coders or the owners of the site. I have also sent numerous message to the owner (baby jesus), to inform him about bugs or asking when certain things will be fixed. However, I guess since I am not some slutty chick with lots of nude photos, I don't qualify for him to be bothered with a reply to my inquiry. Anyway, here it is nearly a year later, the same problems still exist and they would rather spend more time adding new features and layouts than fix the problems created during the move.

If you can manage to get past the unethical and unprofessional business practices, fubar can be a fun place to meet new ppl from all over the world. If you have any dignity or modesty I suggest you not spend any real money on the site that you are not willing to lose in the event they decide to delete your account for some silly reason or no reason at all. Don’t expect the owner or staff to act in a professional business manner if you need to get in touch with them for any legitimate reason. If you have to deal with staff member “Scrapper” expected to be treated with total disrespect. Of course with a screen name like “Scrapper” you shouldn’t expect anything less than a fight with him.

You can expect double standards to the rules listed in the fubar bible. You will see many members violating the rules and if you are not one of the inner circle members that spends loads of money or posts lots of explicit photos, you best not break any rule at all. Even then there is no guarantee some jealous twit wont get you kicked out because you happen to be getting more attention than they are or you happen to post a comment on someone’s profile they happen to be in love with. If you want to play their popularity game you can expect that you or someone else will have to spend real money in order for you to advance in levels. If you don’t spend the money to level you will be constantly bombarded with annoying messages from the fubar support bot program telling you to see what you need to do to level once your points reach the number needed to advance while the other requirements have not been met.

Also be wary of the bloated numbers fubar advertises as active members. Until recently they were posting the most recent account ID number as the number for total members but after people got wind of the deception they removed that from the status. Now they constantly claim to have over 36,000 active and online members while the front page show the real number of recent logins, which are typically less than 600. My guess is most of the “so called” active member stats are from the staff members logging into accounts that have been inactive for over a year.Then there is the possibility they have so many bot programs running fake accounts which would also account for the lag we experience on what should be a pretty fast server.

So bottom line, if you want to meet some nice people, can stand to be objectified as a woman or ignored as a man, can avoid conflict with staff and/or inner circle friends of fubar (adding bouncers to your friends list doesn’t get you in the inner circle or protect you the rath), love drama or can at least tolerate it and don’t mind being strong armed or ignored in lounges, you might find fubar to be just the place for you. Just proceed with caution and avoid spending money you aren’t willing to throw away. Eventually you will get screwed.

Tony 4 years ago

I was on fubar until I told them I did not like any of the music in the band contest so they deleted my account. not very cool at all but it's a site about making money only.


Manda 4 years ago

First off bouncers are volunteers they r not paid. Second it is a game u like many other sites can play free or psu for added features. I have been a member for four years and I very rarely spend money I am a level 44 and enjoy the site a lot. I hhave made a lot of friends and also play mafia. The site isn't perfect but it is what u mske of it.


Moan Liisa 4 years ago

I've been a member of Fubar since 2006 and I would advice people to stay away. It's not a social site, it's a business and it's run like a facist regime. They are cheating on everything, the number of members etc. Lots of the accounts on there are fake accounts created by themselves. Their business practise is so crooked that you should NEVER give them your credit card info. The 2 guys who run the site, Mike and Ryan (they don't own it though. Social Concepts inc. does), are totally low class men who behave like childish 13 yrs old.

Fubar can be fun if you are lucky to meet the right people on there, so if you like, try it out, BUT DO NOT SPEND ANY REAL MONEY ON THERE!

Me69 4 years ago

I myself joined over 4 yrs ago when the site was fun and the highest level you could reach was 25,HH were $100.00's and they didn't have the "BLING SHOP". I have recently deleted my page in october then started my page 7times. Yes,7 times.Crazy I know. The drama,liars,users,womanizers and fakes are out of control.I deleted because of the drama and because of a man who uses single moms with little or no income for his sick games.He gets into their heads and makes them feel bad for him then he uses them to send him money.He himself has no income. I know for a fact he doesnt.I met the guy and know his history. I was 1 of those women who was victimized by this man.There are a lot of nice men and women on fubar if you can get threw all the others that ruin the fun for others. It is a glorified porn site not a social site. It allows prostitution,child molesters,etc. The people who run fubar are making bank and dont care about the people on the site unless you spend thousands and thousands of dollars a month on there.I myself have spent a total of maybe $150.00 on the site in the 4 yrs i was a member just so i could advance a little bit faster. It took me 4 and a half yrs to get to level 36 only because of the requirements you to achieve to level. I would not advise or recommend fubar to anyone for many reasons. I mean if people like the abuse from others and stoop to such levels to be popular or seek attention then by all means that would be the site for them. If I want to see nude photos or cams then I will go to a porn site. fubar is more like FU-DRAMA-BAR


Just Me 4 years ago

I've been using fubar since it was called Cherry Tap. It used to be really fun but now that make it so hard to level unless you spend money. One of the admins who goes by the name Scrapper wrote a blog about how nobody spends money to level. He said it was a "myth." Someone called him out and explained that you in fact need to buy bling, which costs credits, which you pay for with real money. Of course Scrapper had no response to that. One thing that is really irritating about fubar is how you'll see people who've been on there for years and they are maybe in the mid-20's as fae as level goes. But you get peopple who've been on there for one month who are already at level 50 (52 is currently the highest level). Either those people are really fubar employees or something really shadey is going on


rusty1325 4 years ago

fubar is a joke the site is full of cyber prostitutes and perverted men.i used to like there mafia game and that was the only reason i went on the site but now people are creating fake accounts and fubar does nothing about it they allow the cheating coz it inflates there membership numbers.


JOHNPLANEDUDE 3 years ago

I have been a member for about 6 months. i had made a status comment that it was unlimited 11's for rates, and ask members to come and rate some of my pics and humor..I needed 8 million to level..and each rate was worth 350 + points. The previous day I actually netted almost a million points. sSo i posted a note to a friend to ask her to maybe steer some people my way for rates.Then i decided to add about 8 or 10 new pics..{mostly humor]. Almost imeadatly I was asked to relogin, to which Irealized that I couldn't. In conversation with my aformentioned friend, she stated that fubar said i should contact fubar support. I did in a relitively polite manner, asking why I was being blocked from my page. Iwas supposed to get a response in 72 hours...not!!!After 5 days I sent another email to support, and this time I told them that was not a happy camper....As a side note I doubt I will get a response. I also think these people are pretentious idiots. i will speak my mind and appreciate it when a company treats me like I'm am important. Curiously in all the posts above nobody has mentioned or brought the "BABY JESUS" PERSONAGE. I am not a religeous zealot...but for one to call them self "BABY JESUS" seems at the very least pretentious. If you knew me you weould know that I speak my mind when I see bullsh*t like this. So I asked in my second email to fubar support if this was really a real company or just a hobby..I also suggested that they be more proffesional in their response to support issues....then I addressed the "BABY JESUS" ISSUE. I asked why he hadn't called himself BABY ALLAH...and sugesstred he didn't because maybe he afaid that "THEY" might send a jumbo jet and try to fly it up his ASS....so no I don't expect a response from support...and yes my old page is still there but I can't access it, I'm still getting comments on it though. What do I think about fubar...well I've always believed a well run business can and will flourish. One such business is REDBOX...a company that rents movie dvd's out of vending machines..in the Phoenix Az area...inless than 6 months they rented 65 million dvd's...any time iIhad a problem...no problem . So is FUBAR FUSHIT....PROBABLY!!!....JOHNPLANEDUDE...COME TO MY PG ON FUBAR AND LEAVE ME A COMMENT.....JOHN

I recently had a problem with fubar.com . It seems like they always kowtow to the weak minded people, or the ones that tend to spill a substantial amount of their income for blings, happy hours, and whatnot.

Just the other day I got into an argument with one of these people in a mumm. I stayed within their lines of TOS, there was someone else even arguing with her in the same mumm that was more vulgar than I was. It seems to be this certain member was logging on a different account that they made (which is a nono according to their rules). I decided to send a message to support stating what I had witnessed and linked both accounts in question. I had done this yesterday. I had been logged on all day today, and with no incident. I checked in later in the day, and noticed my account was deleted without any rhyme or reason. They have a history of favoring individuals who do spend money on their wares (Perhaps part of business practice for customer retention?), but I feel also hurts them at the end of the day to draw more paying customers, which I wasn't. Now that I experienced this, I will not come back to that cesspool of social networking.

The members overall reek of desperation to get attention. The only type of person that I can see who would actually enjoy this site are people who have Histrionic Personality Disorder. If anyone is contemplating joining this website, I suggest you steer clear, and steer clear quickly. There are plenty of other social networking alternatives in which you will get treated better, and don't require you not to spend a crapton of money to feel like a human being.

Clay 2 years ago

I think it's stupid. You have to do all this weird stuff to get points so that you're a valued part of a web site? Why not just go onto a site where people want to hang out? They're there. You're there. You chat for a couple of days and meet in person. Seems more normal than getting into a two month frickis about trying to get a bunch of points so you can be "accepted". No thanks.

I've been on and off since even before it was cherry tap. Love it! Still friends with some of the people I met there when I was in college...

Hi I've got a question about this page. If you haven't been on in a few year/months. Will you all of a sudden just start receiving mail/drinks from different people? Or will the mail stop?


Gary Gates "mcluvn" 16 months ago

Jimmy you got it all wrong and are so misleading to these people. Fubar is a scam geared to milk you dry with crtual junk and making thousands bankrupt and ruining families. If you had any since you'd give this socal site a thumbs down. In the 3 months I've been on Fubar, I've only met woman wanting money, beggers and cheaters. waisted thousands to level and nothing to show for it.


fiestybabe69 11 months ago
