Quick! Lose all respect for me by reading on!

I totally just joined Friendster. Shut up. I am always up on the latest trends like that. I like to think of myself as jumping on the bandwagon just as it's about to hurtle off the cliff and burst into flames.

I still have yet to join friendster...just for the joy of saying no when people ask me if I use it.

gravatar srah - January 19, 2004 - 3:45 PM -

No one ever asks me! I guess everyone on Friendster just hates me!

"You are connected to 52,915 people in your Personal Network, through 3 friends. "

Greg... what have you done to me?!

friendster=fun [for 5 minutes, after that it's just one more time killer]

gravatar srah - January 19, 2004 - 6:36 PM -

I've noticed that already!

That's funny--I said the same thing to Sarah Brown when she added me and I suddenly I was "connected" to thousands of strangers. I told her I wanted a doctor's note from each and every one of them.

My favorite part is the testimonials. Making my friends sound like complete freaks, but lovable ones.

So far, I am not impressed with friendster. Firstly, the term "Gallery" means nothing to me in terms of friend searching. It should just be called "Friends." And it says that I have a new message, but then when I click on the new message it says I don't have new messages. And then when I try to search the gallery, it says that my search can not be completed and to try again later. Harumph.

Is VERY slow for me, and always tells me the system is too busy.. it IS beta tho... but it has been beta for months nad has barely changed..

gravatar srah - January 20, 2004 - 12:00 PM -

I agree with both of you. Bad user interface! And slow!

gravatar Urs - January 20, 2004 - 12:46 PM -

But everything has bad UI.....

gravatar Greg - January 20, 2004 - 1:21 PM -

The site is in Beta, which is why there's bugs everywhere. For example, Srah, you sent me a message--and I was notified that you did--but I can't READ it because the message hasn't shown up in my inbox yet. Based on past experience, it eventually will...in about a week.

If it's still in Beta when I join, it's going to crash and burn before it ever gets to Gamma.
