  2. Eizan says:

    Yep, same thoughts as well. FS probably organized this to assess their share in the country.

  3. sherwin says:

    wala ng sense to maintain a friendster account pa, most have already abandoned friendster.

    papasok lang sa world record yan kung mamimigay sila ng something sa mga aattend haha, hindi dahil gusto nila mag friendster pa.

  4. iron says:

    ako rin FB na me but I still kept connected with my friends sa FS. FS organize this gathering just to keep the FS community stronger.

  6. anne says:

    same here. facebook na rin, friendster is so 2006.

  7. Friendster should improve their layout and delete all their spam users.

  8. william says:

    Friendster just looks like crap now with all the customization users can do. FB looks neat

  9. Edz says:

    yes correct dami spam sa fs. Fb nko…

  10. goosebumps says:

    i forgot my FS password..prolly because i was no longer using it for quite some time…

  11. techme says:

    i already deleted my fs account! i’m a Fb user..! di na kc naimprove ung fs mxadong trivial na ang fs and mxadong maraming spammers!

  12. Jhay says:

    I knew this would turn into FS bash comments thread.
    Though it would be interesting to see if they’d succeed in setting the world record.

  13. RaM says:

    dba… FS is for sale already?! :))

  14. bienlee says:

    facebook here!
    sana ayusin ng friendster yung site nila…ang nakakainis kasi sa Friendster…navi-view yung mga pictures at comments ng kahit sino, kahit naka private profile pa…hay talaga…

  15. NIEL says:

    LOL goodluck sa world record. Facebook is still the best.

  16. designnatin says:

    FB here.. hehehe poor friendster

  17. designnatin says:

    FB here.. hehehe need more usability testing for friendster

  18. mnel says:

    i remember it was way 2004 when friendster boomed. then it was replaced by myspace (at least in the west) and now both are down the drains since facebook started. i won’t wonder anymore when facebook faces the same doom when something new comes along.

    i just wanna say goodluck to the organizers of this event on setting a world record. ;)

  19. victor says:

    may FS pa din naman ako. pero i check it once a month. as in check lang. after 2mins logout na tapos facebook na. hehe. corny na ng FS eh. pero mga barkada ko nakakakuha ng mga highschool na ka SEB dun at college. heheheh

  20. Carl says:

    Uso uso lang yan..What’s next after Facebook?

  21. Tech Blog says:

    Haven’t logged in to my friendster account for couple of months now, I just hate the new interface trying to copy facebook, but friendter’s version suck the life out of the usability of their site.

    Your not even able to delete photo easily.

  22. Igme says:

    Facebook is better admittedly. I still keep my Friendster maintained.

    I keep my Friendster as pure as I can; you know people I really saw or met even if its only once. So in that sense no EBs needed for me cause I’ve seen them all. hehehe

  23. popo says:

    yep, i agree..Facebook is better
    neat and user friendly

    friendster is like an advertising website already.

  24. ha? ano po ba yung friendster? facebook user kasi ako e! wahaha!

    siguro this will be the first and the last EB that they will organize! wahaha! goodluck! :P

  25. The Nerd! says:

    21,000 fans already logged in for the event??! These lot joining the event?! how in the world is the music hall gonna hold this number of people? this is crap.

  26. victor says:

    i agree. madaming ng eche bureche sa FS. ang pangit na. sometimes, less is more. being simple and easy to use is still on top. grabe din adverts sa FS. pati buong profile mo damay na. plus spammers pa etc. yung mga tipong nakukuha yung password mo tapos magspam ng testimonial sa friends mo na spam adverts lang. they need to rebuild and rethink everything. well one thing though. mayaman na fs. kaso lumipas na ang prime nila. hehehe

  27. lahat naman kayo nagumpisa at minsan naaliw sa friendster.. common guy’s wake up.. so pano na pag may lumitaw na social site na mas cool sa Facebook 5 years from now? same negative comment din ba gagawin nyo sa facebook?.. hay pinoy nga naman

  28. boy kuripot says:

    Napadaan ako sa isang charity concert event ng Friendster sa MOA SMX nung time ng fashion week. Meron kasi kami pinuntahan na fashion show sa 2nd floor. Pagbaba namin, mga 11pm, hinahatak ng mga organizer ng Friendster papasok ng event hall. Laking gulat ko nung makita ko na sobrang konti ng tao. Around 50 siguro. Tapos yung nirent nila na venue sobrang laki. Nagsetup pa sila ng 2 malaking projector screen sa gitna na wala naman makakakita since lahat nasa pinakaharap. What is more sad is that it’s a charity event which has a ticket price of about P250 but we got in for FREE. Ganon sila kadesperado kumuha ng tao. I feel bad for them. I hope this time may pumunta sa event nila

  29. jose says:

    Corny naman ‘yung facebook pero social lang. Tama uso-uso lang ang mga ito. Takot nga sila sa twitter.

  30. Gwapito says:

    Friendster! It’s still full of bugs, and slow to load. Why can’t they fix it?

  31. john says:

    no to fs! yes to fb! why fs got many scam users. love applications on fb….

  32. edwin says:


    me facebook na ako simula nung hindi pa uso facebook at puro mga asa college pa ang gumagamit nun.

    Pero sa friendster kasi, kahit mga kaibigan ko sa probinsya meron na kaya oks pa din ang friendster.

    Nakakapagtaka ngayon yung mga friendster wh ores dati ngayon binabash na ang friendster dahil sa facebook hahaha.

    Sabi nga ni erap, weather weather lang yan. Nde porket uso maganda na :)

    Buti nga ina acknowledge pa tayo ng isang social networking site eh. :)

  33. Facebook forever LOL. I deleted my Friendster account twice already, and I’m thinking of deleting my third re-create of my old Friendster account.

    Facebook = I can find my blood relatives no matter how far we are separated, which is a huge plus for me. Not to mention, how easy it is to create corporate “pages”.

    Friendster “fan pages”? Never mind, experience and customer service counts. That’s my only message to them.

    Facebook hands-down.

  34. Luna G. says:

    Hey Abe, HAHA! How are you? It’s been a long time. hehe. DZMM Times.. haha!

    I guess FS is now really got a problem.

    There’s a huge competitor arrived. awts!

    FB is much better than FS I Guess.. haha, Saya-Saya!:)

    Goodluck to you!

    I happen to be at SM MOA last Saturday and super daming tao dun sa grand EB.

    Most of the people there are high school up to college students. So I guess, magka-iba lang talaga ang market ng Friendster and FB. Mas older na yata ang FB.

    With the turn-out ng tao, its a statement that Friendster is still here and they are still huge here in the Philippines.

  37. The event was a success in our opinion…

    Congratulations to Mall Of Asia for this.




  38. ZJ Morales says:

    Friendster is not very practical these days. It’s been invaded by children 10 – 12 years old. Even my pamangkin have twice the size of my contacts in FS. She has 600+ ata.

  39. jm says:

    fb lover ako. haha
    ang cheap na ng fs well maintenance pa rin
    pero i got addicted to fb
    yung fs kc prang ang cheap na eh ee.

  40. Lalaine says:

    Friendster is going down
    lalo na yung filter sila ng filter
    ng application for customized layouts.

    Kaya lang naman till now may tao sa friendster dahil sa mala blog at mga cute na layouts.

    Sayang ang FS tsk

    Naniniwala ka bang sa SIPAG at TIYAGA may PAG-YAMAN?!!
    YES?!! oo tama yan sa panahon NOON!!! pero sa panahon ngayon im sorry to tell you hindi na uubra yan!
    ano example ko : kargador sa pier, security guard, tricycle / jeepney driver, etc masisipag at matitiyaga ba sila?! yes of course ang kargador madaling araw palang nagbubuhat na ng mabibigat! ang security guard naman 12 hours a day ang duty. mayaman na ba sila? or ganun pa din?!!

    kapatid ang formula sa pag-asenso ng tao sa panahon natin : hindi sapat ang ST or Sipag at Tiyaga!
    SIPAG, TIYAGA at tamang DISKARTE Yan dapat !!! tamang diskarte sa tamang COMPANY! ! !
    Tamang COMPANY na merong totoong kitaan o income at hindi scam!
    Totoong income at hindi pantasya basta gawin mo lang ng tama ang negosyo dito ka aasenso! Maniwala ka! Subukan mo!
    Maniwala ka muna at makikita mo kung gaano ito ka totoo! Marami ng Dealer sa Vita Plus ngayon kumikita na ng 15,000 a day or 75,000,00 a week, parang impossible pero ang maganda magtanong ka, magresearch ka, mag-inquire ka o tomawag ka o magtext sa 09192739934 or 09183404997 at ituturo ko sayo kung saan ka dapat pumunta depende sa location mo kasi meron kaming office o center sa Luzon Visayas at Mindanao . Walang namang mawawala sayo kung makikinig ka at ibukas ang isipan mo.Yung asawa ni ABS-CBN broadcaster Ted Failon ay isa sa mga top earner ng Vita Plus kaya mismo si Ted Failon Alam niya ang Vita Plus Business. Panoorin mo yung VIDEOS sa website na ito at malalaman mo na pati si Korina Sanchez ay alam din niya kung sino yung mga yumaman na dito sa Vita Plus, at kung duda kapa rin puwede Kang tumawag sa ABS-CBN o kay Korina Sanchez mismo at itanong mo kung gaano ito katotoo. Sa librong “Go Negosyo”(available sa national bookstore) na isinulat ni Joey Concepcion ang First Vita Plus ay isa sa mga top 50 Inspiring Intrepreneurial Stories dito sa Pilipinas. Ang First Vita Plus ay isang totoong negosyo at subok na ang kalidad ng produkto at sestema ng kitaan kaya maraming umasenso at guminhawa ang buhay sa pagiging dealer. Kapatid subukan mo at tiyak hindi ka magsisisi kaysa hindi ka sumubok hindi mo malalaman na dito sa Vita Plus marami na palang umasenso ang buhay at puwede ring mangyari sayo basta gawin mo lang ang tamang ginagawa ng mga umangat at umasenso na dito sa Vita plus, gayahin mo lang, kopyahin mo lang yung mga paraan nila at mararating mo rin yung narating nila. Kung kaya nila kaya, din natin!kung amasenso at yumaman sila, aasenso din tayo! Kaya kung sumali sila, sasali din tayo!
