Friendster Blogs from Typepad to WordPress!

Quite amusing, I rant so much about the friendster blog which don’t have any improvements at all since it launched, and here they are, at last, moved a finger in blogs. They’ve migrated from Typepad to WordPress blogging platform. It was in beta earlier this September, and finally launched, which I’m not sure when it did. All I know is that I received a notification through email that I had a pingback from my friendster blog to this blog. =p Perhaps people can start going back from multiply to friendster? I don’t think so, most bloggers will do I guess (wordpress’ SEO is REALLY a big advantage + friendster domain), but some features aren’t polished yet.

I haven’t seen ads yet on my friendster blog, but sooner or later if the blogs gets populated, they’ll surely implement ads — THEIR ads. There’s no way I can customize the theme that I activated on the control panel to insert ads, though the widgets can be accessed, and ads can be inserted there. But I’m not sure if that is allowed. The control panel was kind of similar to ~ probably because it uses the WordPress MU CMS ~ and this migration is only one big step for Friendster.

But ho dear Friendster, you’ve still got a lot of improvements to do! XD


Is it me or is it just the Friendster sucks?

I can’t make my Flickr flash/html badge to work on my profile. Scripts (javascript) are not working, html-enabled boxes unable to read the HTML table tags, media box unable to be emptied once filled (unless the layout would be reverted to default)… it just frustrates out of me.


And up until now, their blogs has no progress at all. And oh, I remember the time I was browsing/edit my photo albums, I encountered an option on the left side to be able to import photos from Flickr to Friendster but unfortunately that time it was soon-to-be-announced or “coming soon”. Where was it now anyway?

And duh… friendster messages are now being used like forwarded email messages. As a frequent user nowadays, I am expecting a personal message whenever there are email notifications about it. But lo and behold, it is quite disappointing to see it isn’t something I expected it to be.

Friendster is way too behind Multiply. As I logged in on my 2yr dormant account on Multiply recently, there are lots of good changes. On the other hand, I find Facebook a lot more flexible than Friendster – so, is there anything to expect from the people behind Friendster?
