Is Friendster Getting Revamped?

friendster-logo

On October 5, Friendster invited a few bloggers for lunch to meet with Ben Dunn, VP Philippines and Global Head of Brand Experience.

Mr. Dunn asked us feedback about friendster and why some people stopped using it.

We shared our thoughts about the service one by one.  What really came out was friendster lost its edge mainly because they stopped innovating/improving after a while that other services like facebook, multiply took that chance and penetrated the online networking world.

It is really good to know that Friendster is reaching out to get our opinion. I am glad that whatever plans Friendster has, I hope they get to improve their service.

We were treated to Fish & Co.. By the way, I ordered my favorite fish & chips.

Here are what we shared to Ben (I also gathered feedback from friends):

  • Reasons why we stopped using friendster
  • – too much spam – no improvements – grandparents/parents joining the network – site looks dirty – page loads very slowly – no friendster application for gadgets like iPhone & Blackberry
  • Suggestions
  • – Have your own niche – change the look of the site – simpler user experience – develop an application for gadgets like iPhone, Blackberry, Palm OS, etc. – SMS + Friendster integration – aggressive marking & advertising

If you do have suggestions, please do post it here πŸ™‚ I’m pretty sure, Friendster guys will appreciate your comments.

Here’s a picture of the group:

    other social networking sites provide applications such as games…online chat…and community. the main thing is instant interactivity, interaction and connection with friends and family and maybe as was mentioned the next thing would be multimedia(iphone,blackberry,etc.)
