It may sound tempting to build a dating site or a social network without spending a penny, but in reality that’s an ambition that could ruin your business even before the launch. Mostly, open platforms are created with potential for further development. This is why they might not have the full range of features offered by paid dating software solutions. At the same time, free software products almost uniformly lack proper customer support, and feature unimpressive templates selection. Still, if you have web-development experience, enough time and patience to wait for results, and a clear idea of what you want to achieve, freeware might be just what you need. Otherwise it is better to consider some full-featured paid solution.
