Even though I have the Agloco toolbar installed,I haven't really used it in a long while and now i'm glad I haven't. This is an update from the Agloco team, I received the other day:"We would like to update you on the status of Agloco's operations.We continue to believe in the Agloco concept,but our revenue is not sufficient to give members a meaningful distribution and though there are increases in membership, the resulting revenue is not enough to support operating costs.As a development team, we are unable to use our savings to fund the operations. Sincerely, The Agloco Team."It just goes to show, that when something sounds to good to be true, it probably is.

Your welcome and just to think of all the thousands of people who signed up to this program,who truly believed they were onto something great, it's really sad.

I first heard of Agloco through the volition.com website. I believe the owner was heavily touting it and I signed up and even installed the toolbar for awhile when it finally became available but shortly thereafter uninstalled it. Did you ever notice that you could never find out just how commissions would be calculated, what amount/percentage they would be, nor when they would be paid? The concept, to my limited thinking anyway, sounded high-flying and big talking, but I'm more of a dollars-and-cents gal myself and the lack of cold, hard facts always made it a little 'iffy' in my book. Big promises and big talk, though and perhaps a great idea, too, but I just couldn't wrap my head around it. Since I'm by no means an innovator nor a business guru, I could well be wrong in my thinking but I just went with my gut. I figured I couldn't heavily promote a program which didn't first work for me on a personal basis but maybe that just makes me part of the reason why it failed (?).

Hi:Thanks for your extended response.Yes, even though I had the toolbar installed,i just had a gut feeling it would be a worthless endeavor and that's why, i never really promoted it.Once i heard that it would be six months or more before anyone would even see "any" commissions being paid, i stopped using it altogether.Also, i totally agree with you regarding not wanting to promote something, where you are not personally earning anything yourself.it's hard to say wonderful things about a program, when you're not even sure you will ever see any profit from it.
