Have you heard in the news about Friendster closing down on May 31, 2011? Yup. I saw it in the evening news last week. The management of Friendster admitted that facebook is taking social networking by storm + twitter world. It's a facebook world today. Actually Friendster is not closing down on May 31, 2011. According to the news they will be upgrading into a more entertainment site but not social networking.
According to Friendster:
We are introducing a new and improved Friendster site in the coming weeks. As part of this change, we will remove a number of social networking functions in Friendster. This includes your existing account profile, photos, messages, blogs, and shoutouts. However, your list of friends will be preserved, along with your basic profile information.
We understand that your photos, blogs and other private data may be important to you. An application is available in the "Apps" section of the site, until May 31st 2011, to help you download or export them securely to third party sites, such as Flickr or Multiply. The application is available here.
If you do not wish to keep any of these information, you do not need to do anything. Your Friendster account will not be deleted. Your Friendster Wallet, along with the coins and chips in it, will remain unchanged in the new site as long as you use your existing login details.
For more information on the Exporter app, please visit the Friendster Help page.
Thank you for using Friendster, we look forward taking you to a brand new Friendster experience very soon!
Anyways, I am joining Self Saga City Two Question Thursday. I know I'm late but better late than never right? :P
My question is very simple..
- Do you have an account from Friendster?
- Do you think thier upgrade will help them gain thier popularity again?
- Yes, I had account and even had blogs. I really need to export my files there especially my photos.
- I don't think so. Facebook apps on games is also a fever. Really hard to beat them.
