I strive to write upbeat online social networking posts. However, sometimes I have to publish a bad report.

I told you that I had found the social networking site Wowzza Disappointing. I decided to withdraw during Wowzza’s 10-day grace period, and I expected to receive a refund.

When my refund wasn’t issued after more than a week, I contacted Jim Vigilante, the site’s founder, who said that he would look into it for me.

Last week I wrote him again. This time I did not receive a reply.

If I eventually receive my refund, I’ll post a comment to this article to let you know. As of now both social networking sites, Wowzza and Zion 5, are suspect.

If you already belong to either of them, enjoy! No need to quit.

But if you haven’t joined them, you should consider taking your online social networking business elsewhere.

    I totally agree about wowzza, and I mean the paid option. I stayed for one month and than I was out of there.

    Have you mentioned Twitter?

    I really like Twitter because of how easy and fast it is. And it’s fun to use and read others’ tweets.

    I do use Twitter to some degree. Please follow me.

    Twitter is one of the many resources listed on my blog’s sidebar.

    My friend Ivo Jackson teaches Twitter marketing. Check out her home business marketing blog.

    Following up. I made several attempts to have Jim Vigilante from the social networking site Wowzza refund my membership fee — to no avail.

    As much as I hate chargebacks, that was my only recourse. The credit company refunded my $32.95.

    I dropped out of Wowzza this week. I was in from the 1st day.

    I think wowzza is striving to improve things — as well as using some language to delay payments.

    My fast start bonus was never paid. As I followed the news updates as to the situation, they always blamed new or upcoming software.

    In addition the site is a race to get friends, so you spam the heck out of everyone.

    If you follow the big hitters and recruiters, you will notice their sign up numbers falling not rising.

    This site brings back bad memories of All Networkers demise and hundreds of people waiting to get their money back.

    If they’re not honoring their refund policy, it’s logical to assume that they’re struggling with their cash flow. I’m sorry that I was even briefly connected with Wowzza and with Zion 5.

    It does however help me to better appreciate Direct Matches. Since I joined DM back in 2005 they’ve consistenlty met or exceeded my expectations.

    Even though I haven’t pursued Direct Matches as a business, I have earned a few hundred dollars in commissions, and they’ve always paid me on time.

    Bill Weber, the owner’s father and an extremely successful network marketer, also promised way back when I joined that he would send me some free brochures because of a minor misunderstanding on my part, and he followed through generously.

    He and his son have also helped me in other ways, which I don’t wish to go into right now, but that are also very much appreciated on my part.

    Despite the large amount of spam I receive daily from SpiderWeb Marketing System members, I enjoy my Direct Matches Executive Membership and look forward to many more years of association with the Webers and the Winwoods, top leaders at Direct Matches.
