Old story of Friendster
November 26, 2007 § Leave a comment
Friendster might be a yester-year trend (I certainly don’t think so since IT is the major social network site that I use), but its up and down story is the kind of tale that fascinates me.
In case some readers didn’t know, they rejected $30 million dollars buyout from Google in 2003.
Their super fast growth was probably 1 of the biggest problem, they couldn’t scale as fast as they grow.
It’s best for readers to simply read the articles. It’s very interesting read.
