Default Social Network sites for Prisoners


I am new to this site and have been writing an inmate for the past few months. He asked me if I could do something like make a facebook page and give inmate contact information and some information about the inmates so that they can get letters from people. He had told some of his friends that he would ask but it wasn't for him. I don't think that Facebook would be a good idea but I wanted to see if there is another free site that a third party can set up for a prisoner giving information about them and see if someone wants to write them. They don't have internet access in that prison but I thought there has to be some kind of site like that but I couldn't find any. Does anyone know of a site that supports what I'm looking for? I hope I'm making sense lol.

I personally do not think it is wise to create FB pages for inmates. Some states take that very seriously and are trying to criminalize it. Even if they didn't, you never know if a DOC employee could stumble across the site and it cause problems for that inmate in some other way.

There are some good alternatives for posting pen pals ads. Namely, right here on PTO. Check out our free pen pal forum.
