    facethejury, friendster, myspace, POF, bebo, facebook

    These are all sites that got a ton of signups over the past 10 years. It's also interesting that facebook overtook myspace while everyone was preaching that social networks were on their way out and saturated... goes to show that most people just repeat what they hear...

    I'd like to know the methods that commercial sites like Bebo and other social networks/dating sites use successfully to get signups. There's no way I'm paying $5/$10 per signup for a free site. So if you really know please share the knowledge. Particularly how to get to the first million users on a free social network/dating site.

    This topic has been really interesting to me but it seems like no one knows how those companies get signups.
