Four days in and friendster.com is almost dead to me. Maybe I don't see the point. I thought it could have been a neat little gateway for introductions between people with mutual friends and/or interests. Instead it seems like an online display case for people who collect "friends." My God, within 4 days, I have 193,000 "personal connections." Most of the profiles I look at are connected to me through fucking Jack Osbourne and they're like 18 years old (assuming they tell the truth) and are really into emo. How did this happen? The garden is overrun with weeds before the seeds were even planted.
I might add, however, that I have enjoyed hearing from some old friends. I guess I just don't feel like I need an online chart to keep track of them. I'm giving it some time. Maybe its true purpose reveals itself slowly, like geology or 100 Years of Solitude.
