What is the website called MadeBig about?
== == MadeBig is a Salt Lake City based pyramid scheme, run
under the guise of a social networking site which at one time
enabled users to create, share and connect with other users but
constantly changes and is currently attempting to collect money for
charities, while skimming a large percentage off the top. It
pretends to be "the next biggest thing on the Internet", yet has
existed since at least 1999 and constantly shows a very small user
base when analyzed with commonly available web traffic tools.
Despite pretending to be a completely free site, what is not
shared with casual users is that the site has agents who are paid
little or nothing to recruit and boost the content and usage of the
site. Unfortunately, many of the agents paid upwards of $297 for
this privilege and many were also conned into paying around $70 a
month for supposed site users who would rake in a percentage of
sales made on the site. This entire scheme never got going and was
re marketed shortly after, leaving the original agents with nothing
to show for their investment or the money taken from their accounts
month after month.
Members once could create blogs, forums and groups, share photos
and social feeds, make friends, trade goods in the MarketExchange,
connect with local businesses and play games.
Now, although a few of those functions remain the MadeBig
website concentrates on the supposed 'social entrepreneur' side,
with an unregistered charity foundation called "Grant Wishes
Foundation", owned by Madebig President and owner, Richi Roane.
If an agent or Presidential Leader of this company ever attempts
to sell you an "opportunity" in this company, you would be wise to
investigate further. Ask about the company's past; why its owner
has a background in pyramid schemes, multi-level marketing and
miracle products sold online. Ask why the company constantly
changes the purpose of its site and has a reputation for never
paying what it promises and above all, get any promises made to you
in writing - so that when you realize you have been conned, you
have evidence of what has happened.
Another answer MadeBig is a social platform that presents an
unparalleled opportunity to engage the power of people to create
positive changes to worthy causes and make a difference in the
world around us. People all over the world are facing an
overwhelming assortment of social and environmental problems
ranging from health care and education to global warming and
economic disparity. For each of these issues, whether local,
national or global in scope; there are millions of people who care
passionately about working for change but lack the information and
opportunities necessary to translate their interest into effective
action. The MadeBig social platform aims to address these needs by
first serving as the central platform for Social Entrepreneurs to
inform and empower movements for social change around the most
important issues of our time; and, second, creating ways that
members can show support for these causes without emptying their
wallet. A donation of time is just as good as a donation of money.
Moreover, the fact that they are publicly telling the world that
they support a cause is a donation of awareness.
A local newspaper did a report on the company after several
complaints were made to a 'puff piece' they had unwittingly printed
in June. A useful link is provided below for people who wish to

keeps changing every year. == == == ==
