This month marks the final chance for you to view my Friendster profile before it will be deleted when the site closes.
TechCrunch shares a guide on how you can save your Friendster data (photos, blog posts, etc.) if you choose.
I’ll let it self-erase as there’s nothing there I haven’t deleted over the years. The site will go down in smoke and enter my consciousness as yet another social networking site that I was once a participant, along with SixDegrees.com, GeoCities, assorted LPMuds, and others.
Here’s a screenshot of the first half of my profile:
I joined Friendster in July 2003.
A vertical listing of my avatar, biographical data, friends’ comments, and links to their profiles encompassed Friendster’s simplicity. When the news feed arrived at Facebook, Friendster (and Myspace) began to die.
And so it goes.
