Folyo Review

Folyo is on a mission to help freelancers work on their own terms. Job seekers used to be able to sign up to their email subscriptions which contained job openings but recently, they changed that. The site is now invitation-only so if you know someone who is a member of Folyo, you can get yourself invited.

Is Folyo a Scam?

Our readers have not indicated that Folyo is a scam or conducts business unfairly. It’s worth a try to get yourself invited by an existing member of a site. “Invitation-only” reeks “not enough jobs to go around” in this reviewers opinion.

You go to Folyo and boom! Money. 

Never recall seeing a job site put listing costs to employers before actual jobseekers before, at least not right on the main call-to-action on the homepage.

It’s all you see. Pay us money, oh, job seekers, hello, here’s a photo of me eating ice cream. Feels like it makes jobseekers an afterthought.

You’re all invited to share your experience about Folyo in the comments below. If you got repeat good work, we’ll update our review after enough comments from actual users.
