What’s the Largest Social Website: Friendster or Facebook?
The battle between two social networking website giants has just started. Two of these giants are Friendster and Facebook, popular in Asia. Some of its fans say Facebook is better than Friendster, but replied, Really?…Watch me!
Facebook , founded by Mark Zuckerberg, started from his Harvard dorm on February 2004, and claimed, as of December 2009, it has over 350 million users. Facebook was opened for investors and Microsoft is one of them, bought 1.6% stake for $240M…Wow!
Friendster introduced its website on March 2003. It gathered 115 million followers or should we say Fans, 90% are in Asia, today and still growing. In 2003, Google wants to buy it out for $30M, but Friendster said, NO WAY!! On 2006, It was then funded by four companies and other individual investors. It continued without so much development on its features and stayed high ranked until the Facebook came. But, Hey! Have you seen the new website of Friendster lately? They have done a lot of makeover, nice work…
With the number of members, indeed Facebook is the largest. Agree??
