Do you still remember Friendster? I believe you do.

Friendster is the original social networking existed and had became a popular social networking way back in 2001. The situation then changed when more users became more attracted to MySpace and Facebook which offer more functions and activities for the online users such as chat and games.

But Friendster is still exists until today and the latest news confirmed that MOL, a Malaysian company buys Friendster for a rumored $100 million.

Some spectators might wonder why would a company buys Friendster for a huge money but in fact, Friendster is a popular choice in Asia compared to MySpace and Facebook which are the popular social networking sites for the Americans. There are more than 75 million registered users and 90 percent of the daily traffic coming from Asia region.

The new Friendster has new layout and appearance and had been improved with new functions and activities for the users. I just logged in my ‘abandoned’ Friendster account just now and somewhat feel amazed to see the improvement. Well, I believe the new Friendster is able to compete with the other networking sites especially Facebook and Myspace and becomes popular again. Who knows?

MOL dare to take a risk to buy Friendster because they think most of parent rather use Facebook than Friendster. So, the children didn’t want parent know every single thing they do in Facebook. So, MOL believe that the children would use Friendster as another alternative to keep update with friend same age with them.

I guess I have to agree with Fatin Pauzi. A lot of people keep wondering what encourages MOL to buy Friendster besides the daily traffic that it get from Asia.

How about a truck? They hold their value well and they’re usually better made than a car. My F-150 is approaching 200k miles and it’s still in great shape.Even city-dwelling single chicks look great in a truck. Of course the mileage won’t be all THAT great but the marginal cost on fewer MPG isn’t that much. I probably get about 4 MPG less than your BMW, which is about 4 cents a mile difference at the moment.
