Friendster vs. Facebook


Hey guys! How are you all doing? I hope all of you are fine. I just got home from work, I feel exhausted, we received so many calls, but I’m kind of ok with that because that’s a typical day at work. So first things first! How’s your weekend? I hope all of you had a blast during the weekend, I hope all of you had a fun and memorable Christmas, well I know that I did have a fun weekend; I mentioned that on my previous blogs. J

Alright. So today’s blog is about Friendster and Facebook. So I’m absolutely sure all of you are familiar with what these two are. I will call this blog “FRIENDSTER vs. FACEBOOK”. I will mainly discuss the pros and cons of these two, so let’s get started.

Ok, I had Friendster first before Facebook, believe me at some point I was obsessed with Friendster. My friend in college created my Friendster account; from that day on I always make sure that I always open my Friendster account, not just everyday but 3 times a day! How loser am I? They say that Facebook came out first before Friendster but I learned of Friendster first, anyway, my friends were asking me to create my own Facebook account, but I told them that I don’t want to because I don’t know how to make one. Yes, I really don’t know how to make one and I still love Friendster at that time.

Anyway, since everyone is pressuring me about creating a Facebook account, eventually I created one, and at first I don’t understand how Facebook works, it’s not user friendly for me.
Long story short, after weeks of studying Facebook I enjoyed it and I always check my Facebook account from then on. I forgot about my Friendster account for like months now. (I’m sorry Friendster!)


You can choose your layouts for your profile based on your personality. You can change it as often as you like.
You can also download songs for your profile, so anyone who will visit your page will get to listen to the song that you uploaded.
Very user – friendly.
You can use pictures or download graphics as part of your comments.
You can make your own videos on your profile.

Friendster now is so boring. Peace.
Few people are using Friendster now; mostly kids. Most people I know they’re into Facebook.
There’s no chat in Friendster.
You cannot put comments on somebody else’s comment.
No events.
The list goes on forever.


You can chat to all of your online friends. Instant messaging.
So many cool applications.
You can create fan pages.
You can use Facebook to organize an event.
You can tag pictures to your friends. Etc.
It’s like YM and Friendster rolled into one.

You cannot personalize your profile page.
Everything is white and blue.
Most people use Facebook to bad-mouth other people.
Wars are most common in Facebook if you know what I mean.

So there you go, that is my insight about these two popular social networks. Friendster or Facebook, it only boils to one purpose: communication. Let’s make sure that we use these two for good reasons only, to communicate and catch up with our old friends and to send love to the people that we don’t get to see everyday.

So what about you? What do you like or don’t like about these two? Do you have any memorable experiences about Fs or FB? I would love to know your opinion about this. Post it as a comment below. I’ll talk to you on my next blog.
This has been Abby saying I heart you. Bye!

Much love,
