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

know more about Madebig, TMII- the company who runs it and why it

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