ASMALLWORLD terminates thousands of memberships worldwide
Protects community’s integrity
NEW YORK, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — ASMALLWORLD, the leading by-invitation global community for cultivated international living, announced today the immediate termination of thousands of memberships worldwide. Following the closing of the site to new members as of March 1(st), and the expiration of all outstanding invitation privileges, the site commenced its biggest community clean-up to date.
