Update on 29/01/2012


Fridge has been acquired by google and is closed now here is what google said :

ridge is closing up shop, while the product and team are folded into Google+. We look forward to continuing the vision of creating great fresh and exciting social group experiences for users across the web.


Fridge is another website that allows its users to create their own social networks . It is like Twiducate but with  more options . I am introducing this tool here because of the importance of social networking in education and how beneficial it is to our students if used in the right way . Fridge lets you have access to a set of useful options that facilitate your online interaction with your group members .
