Does anyone still use Friendster these days?

Asked by Joe_Freeman (504points) June 14th, 2009

Is there any reason to use any of the less popular social networking sites – Friendster, Orkut, Bebo, etc. – any longer, when Facebook has become so dominant? I can certainly understand the special-purpose ones, like Fluther or TeeBeeDee, even MySpace (though I hate it), but do the Facebook-alikes add any value?

They should change the name to Lonester, because if that’s where you’re searching for friends, you are out of luck.

I don’t use any of them, what’s the point?

Orkut is hugely popular in Brazil and India.

I don’t know anyone who still uses Friendster – it never really got off the ground.

YES! The good people of Asia. Friendster became wildly popular there, so they shifted their markets and didn’t put up too much of a fight when they realized MySpace had beat them years ago. Because of how successful it still is there, Friendster ironically is positioned to surpass Facebook in popularity based on sheer volume. See this article among others.
