    My Cluster

    I really like this site.  I'm always on the lookout for ways to share event pix and family history photos.  This site is simple, convenient, and best of all free!

    Different sites do different things, and some are better for pix than others.  With Cluster, you upload finished photos.  I haven't yet figured out how to edit my comments.  It is annoying to have to copy/delete/repost, but otherwise, it's a really nice way to view & share photos.

    I like the admin feature which limits group controls like the group settings on facebook.

    I hope it sticks around for a while because I like it better than other sites I've used so far.
