The Abstract Truth

Goodbye Friendster!

Posted by rbpasker on August 7, 2007

Friendster was the first social networking site I joined, back in Aug 2003, and I get about 2 messages per year from it, none from anybody I know or want to know.

With systems that crawl and consolidate social networking data like Rapleaf and Upscoop, I want to keep a good handle on my web identity.

It took me a few minutes to figure out how to delete my account, but a little link at the bottom of this page was all it took. Well, it took 5 tries to figure out the right combination of boxes to check. And I had to reenter my password all 5 times. I hope their signup doesn’t have as much friction!

Goodbye Friendster!
