The New Friendster is Finally Coming!
December 3rd, 2009
Few months back, I posted “is friendster getting revamped ?” Guess what? That time has come! We’re finally going to see some BIG changes to friendster. They’re on the comeback & it is happening tomorrow!
So login tomorrow afternoon and you’ll see a whole new Friendster. I myself liked it a lot as I’ve known about the changes for two months now. I’ve been itching to tell you dear readers about the changes! Of course, they asked us to keep quiet about it. Now, I’m glad we got the go signal to tell you! :D:D:D
Gosh! There are sssssoooo many changes! Where do I begin? This is the new, simpler, more fun Friendster that lets you connect and communicate with your friends:
- easier to upload your photos
- easier ways to find both current and new friends and their stuff
- Enhanced Self Expression and Customization that lets you express yourself and personalize your Friendster profile and site experience
- Far more Entertaining Content: you can now play games, share gifts and listen to music
let’s start with the fun and simple site:
Friendster has redesigned the site to focus on what people use it for the most: Shoutouts, friends, messaging, games, comments, profile editing, birthdays and bulletins. What else?
- redefined homepage with focus on important user information: friends, new updates
- simplified top navigation bar
- top navigation bar helps you organize friends lists, profile and messaging and yes, games
- comments and photos are now in the new activity stream
What’s the most exciting thing about friendster today? Let me tell you about the Gift Shop and the Wallet. The Gift Shop helps users show how much they care. They can send and receive special gifts. The Friendster Wallet gives users the ability to store money on Friendster, which they call, “Friendster Coins”. Friendster Coins can be purchased at convenience stores as pre-paid cards.
Friendster is looking to the future. Friendster Wallet & Friendster Coins are just the precursor. Friendster hopes to transform itself into a gaming portal. And lastly, these changes come with a new tagline that I think is perfect to describe the many changes of Friendster: “Connecting Smiles“
Finally, say hello to Friendster’s new logo. And yeah, they made donuts out of the new logo when they showed it to us! Yummy!
I obviously enjoyed it! This donut came from Krispy Kreme btw.
Here’s the official video from friendster about their new, simpler, more entertaining site:
So check friendster tomorrow afternoon when all changes go live and add me up as a friend!
