Myspaces new dating site
Of course, it never completely goes away, especially since My Space acknowledges that not all "friends" are friends and no one bats an eye if someone collects hundreds of people.It's more like a process of namaste - i acknowledge your soul and you acknowledge mine.Friendster was a free site where people could meet other interesting people; at the same time, rejection was OK because no one was actually _looking_ to meet someone.Sex is still the reason why people use the site, particularly gay men.People check in daily to see what messages they get. Basically, My Space evolved with its users, building a trusting relationship, figuring out how to meet their needs and cultural desires, providing them with features and really trying to give them what they were looking for.
(Hell, i still haven't.) Friendster tried to stop this, wanting people to be serious and fit into pre-defined checkboxes - to know who they are.Economic factors have changed and many web-minded have found interesting jobs.This is only a small cause of Friendster's loss of this group, but one that should be acknowledged. Friendster became less novel and more restrictive and, thus, more lame.For many teens, My Space is the first asynchronous messaging system that they use regularly.Sure, they have emails but those are to communicate with parents/teachers/companies, not with friends.
