Breaking News! Stop. Friendster To Erase Your Data! Stop.

Quickly! To the computer! Friendster is about to erase your data!

CNN Money reports that an email was sent to Friendster users announcing that they would be unveiling a redesign — and it is an email that I got. At my fucking hotmail account. The email informs users that the company will be “introducing a new and improved Friendster site” (read: skulking away from Facebook domination with as little fanfare as possible), and that should users want to preserve their “photos, blogs or other private data,” they’ve developed an app that allows the info to be moved to Flickr or Multiply.

Phew.

Anyway, remember Friendster? When your online stalking habits really blossomed? I do. Also, remember how what you did on there was post little yearbook-like shout-outs to your friends? As in, “Jessica is the coolest! We took one epic road trip together and that was how I knew I had found my musical soul mate.”

Anyway, all of you may not be sitting there going, “ooooohhhh yeeeeaaaah” and rushing over to your Friendster page to remember what kinds of things people said about you in 2004. But if you are, hurry and copy and paste that shit to a Word doc, or the world may never know what they lost.

      Friendster was all the rage when I was in 9th grade, 6 monthish ago I made a blog post featuring all embarassing friendster prof pics everyone forgot even existed.

      I am sad this database of teenage rebellion will be gone.

        I love friendster due to the most valuable photos of my time as a child and now it is all missing… money would never return that stories…

        I know it’s possible they have back-uped the records. The collection still exist. IT’S Much better If they just shift the files to a different site.
