"YOU'RE GONNA NEED SOMEONE ON YOUR SIDE"

I have nearly 300 friends on my MySpace account, and, hello, a small handful of people on my Friendster account. In fact, I nearly forgot that I even had a Friendster account until a read a funny blog post bemoaning it even existing. Anyone, uh, wanna be my Friendster-friend?

In other news, I don't know how I overlooked this, but I just discovered I made quite a list in December! I'm dying, this is so funny!

Ah... Friendster didn't scale well and MySpace did. MySpace allows customization that Friendster doesn't. And Facebook is the new pink is the new black.

What that means is that I wouldn't worry about beefing up your Friendster account, it is SO 2003.

But doesn't forcing Friendster usage make me an against-the-grain-goer?

That stings!

Leah said...

Hmmm... yes, yes it does.

And against-the-grain-going is good.


Okay, yes, you may force Friendster onto us.

I hadn't used Friendster in so long, my relationship status was totally wrong! :-)
I haven't been stalked on Friendster, so it wins the Friendster/myspace debate in my book...

Oh, wait, the stinging part? I was just explaining why she has 300 on one and not-as-many on the other.

It was a comment on the triumph of Myspace over Friendster in the big battle of social networking. I don't think I ever got over 20 on Friendster, slow beast of a website it used to be.

I thought facebook was aimed at the undergraduate age group?

Dana, will you ever give us links to follow?

Facebook began as a site for only people with .edu emails, but in the last 6 months or so it went public. Not in stocks, but in availability. Growing in popularity, but still primarily college students. Definitely a shifting user base as people graduate and continue using it.
