55X55 Digg • Friendster Philippines Office Closed Down? The office of Friendster Philippines, formerly known as Pusit.com, has been closed down. William Yu took some pictures of their office and asked Where Did Pusit.com Go?

Pusit.com

Realme Philippines

Migs adds that Friendster has ceased running Friendster Classifieds and Friendster Ads (FAds) – They’re outsourcing their technical stuff to another company here, though, AFAIK (something called EGG which listed Friendster as one of their partners). Is this the same one I got from another source a couple months ago about that BPO?

It’s possible Friendster Ads and Friendster Classifieds weren’t successful in monetizing the service among the 5 Million Filipino Friendster users.

Even the domain pusit.com now resolves to Friendster.com.

Update: One of the developers of Friendster Philippines has confirmed this. The contract was apparently not renewed by Terence Pua, Friendster Philippines Country Manager. The old team is now working on new projects like Eskwela.com and Xackup.com (under the company PiKitchen) which seems to compete with Friendster.

There’s no official word from Terence Pua though. William Yu has more juicy information from several unverified sources here. Looks like Friendster will be doing a local BPO after all.

Based on my research, they dont have plans to return old pics sa friendster.. Friendster didnt realize or didnt care on how important those pictures for us… kaya magandang gawin ay…. BOYCOT them!!! mas maganda pa ring maglaro ng games sa Facebook!!! at nakapagshare ka pa ng kahit ano unlike Friendster (crap!)

I have viewed other articles and comments which are broadly in agreement with Friendster Philippines Office closed down? but I have to admit that this item has some supplemental info. There is no smoke without fire and in that respect there are no remarks without posts.
