Friendster has critical mass. I just recently met two new groups of people, and both are hooked into Friendster. I knew about it a while ago, but I prefer to be a follower, instead of a leader in these “invite your friends” things. Looks like it is time for me to follow along and invite some friends to join.
Hopefully Friendster will last longer than Six Degrees did last time this idea came around.
The one problem with Friendster is that it is very slow. It was always slow for me, but I’m guessing part of the problem now is that they have reached critical mass and are growing quickly. It would be interesting to see some graphs of their growth.
