Acebook is a free asexual dating and social networking site. The site was started by AVEN member Derp in September of 2007, shortly after the technical failure of asexualove.net. Originally called "A-Date", and residing on the strait-a.net domain, Acebook was given its own name and domain in 2008.
Although the site was strictly a dating site in its beginnings, the purpose of the site was expanded somewhat into more of a social networking enviroment. Along with the addition of user-created interest groups and friends lists, members are now able to specify that they are looking for friends only.
Acebook has seen increasing popularity since its launch, with approximately 5,000 members joining within the first three years. The site currently has two administrators and six moderators; staff are appointed, rather than elected. Membership is restricted to people who are 18 and older and seeking a non-sexual relationship.
