5 Million Filipino Friendster users?

I was doing a quick post over at Pinoy.Tech.Blog about “Friendster Ads for Php20” when I stumble upon their stats that claim there are 5 Million Filipino Friendster users.

Figures from Internet World Stats pegged the number of online Filipinos at 7.82 Million in 2005 (compared to only 2 Million in 2000). That means a little over 3 out of every 5 people who have access to the internet have a Friendster account.

That’s a real good subscription rate. But I guess that 5 Million includes duplicate accounts, ghost and anonymous accounts most people use to lurk around Friendter looking for pictures.

  1. Over 7 Million? Kasama din diyan ang mga group accounts, hehe. :)

    So does that include most Filipino Friendster users around the globe?

  2. some have multiple friendster accounts. don’t you think that in the stats, they assume 1 account = 1 filipino? this then bloats the total figure. but it’s interesting that we have this many filipino firendster accounts. what about filipino blogs?

  5. yeah, maybe the number bloat because of duplicated account. I, for example, have 5 accounts for my 5 different personalities. bwahahaha. :))

    I find that really easy to believe. When you search ANY country for people, 80% of the people displayed are Philipinos living around in those countries. Try it out!

  14. im quite hooked in the net. in friendster for example, i have 10 accounts, each with more than a thousand friends each. i guess that 5 million doesn’t really translate that 5 million different individuals have friendster site. but still, the figure is awesome. good thing that friendster had updated their site wherein you can have several thousand friends on one account, at least you dont have to keep on creating new one just to accomodate all the pending invites to you. ^_^

  16. i just wanted to make a suggestion to friendster developers… based on my experience, there is a person who used my name to create an account, used my photo, put my face on a nude photos… it’s really disgusting. i just learn about this through my friend who search for my name and told me that why i’ve upload such photos.

    although there is note on friendster that members should not post nudity on this site.. why other users are still posting those kind of photos.

    suggest to please make sure that there are incharge on filtering of photos that are being posted on friendster.
