Tina Tech: Roov.com
Overall impression: Pretty Cool - GREAT Idea!
Look/Feel: Good (great sponsers & love the intro videos)
Purposes Fullfilled: Fellowship, Ministry & Mission
Overall it is a little confusing.
1. During the intial sign up there is an additional feature where you choose your church. If you do not have a church or are looking for a church that is ok.
2. It has the standard verification email, but after clicking to verify you are given the option to invite friends to join. A little odd... I don't even know if I like it yet, why would I bug my friends with it. You can skip it. I hope that option comes up again later, if I like it.
3. I joined a ROOV, but was forced to have input from the beginning in order to join. Not sure how I feel about that.
4. When I went to my homepage I noticed that I was only 25% setup. When I went into the options I was happy with the options I was given. A wide array of email alerts that can be selected or deselected. But I don't like that it tells me my account is not complete when I have not filled out "optional" material.
So... will I ever come back to this site:
Not sure. What I do like most about Roov is it's intention to move passionate people from saying to doing. It is all about bring together online in order to bring people together offline. That is a HUGE need and I totally respect their intent. It is a pretty new site and I like that they are open to feedback.
Lord, thank you for Roov.com. As people log on, signup, and connect using Roov bless those experiences. Let Roov not just be a tool, but a place for people to connect and serve You and others. Amen.
