Do you miss Friendster?

The fall and rise of Friendster

I remember joing six degrees back in the mid-90s, but I was a timid high school student who barely knew anybody. I wasn’t prepared…until Friendster came along. I was more fascinated by how everyone was connected than viewing people’s profiles. Seeing that my friend also knew someone else I knew was the most appealing part of Friendster–the common people we shared. Then it was reading the testimonals and how people would describe themselves on their profiles.

But why I lost interest? Just like everyone else, other social networks had better critical mass. Or better speed.
