Families.com isn’t the most attractive looking website ever. The user interface isn’t too bad but it seems a little clunky. What contributes to this impression mainly is the large number of advertising links embedded throughout the site and its content. It can also be difficult to remember where certain features are located. The popup menus are a bit on the smaller side and were at times difficult to read.
Families.com is completely free to use, and it is supported by advertising revenue generated from the many embedded links located throughout the site's content.
