oh, those clever people at friendster, still trying to reel us in
Just wanted to say that, after a helpful and slightly pleading email from the people at friendster, I've added a link to my public profile URL up top (see? is that sufficiently small-capped and subtle?). As the email says,
Now all your non-Friendster friends can view your public profile without having to sign up or log in. So go ahead, don't be shy! Link to your public profile on your blog, list it in your email footer, write it on the bathroom wall, or publicize it anywhere else you please!Well, I don't know about the bathroom wall, but, well, for what it's worth, there it is. But I'd be interested to know how many people actually use Friendster, on a day-to-day kind of basis, instead of just logging in now and then when some new friend suddenly "discovers" it and is all excited to add you as their friendster.
I seem to remember reading some article about that, actually, saying that friendster did indeed have the problem that no one really stayed logged in for very long - people don't really linger. I see they're all revamping it to encourage lingering, but... meh... has anyone reading this actually met a new person on friendster?
