My circle of Friends... sters...

This friendster thing never ceases to amaze me.
_______________________

Sometime back, at a party, i had the pleasure of being reacquainted with a rather famous sportswriter (lets call him P.A)

Here's how the conversation went after i was introduced...

PA: Nice to meet you.

Me: Actually, we met before...

PA: Yeah, (scratching his chin) you do look familiar...

Me: Yup. We got introduced after the 1999 UAAP finals...

PA: (shakes his head) ...nah thats not it...

Me: (me thinking again)... umm we also met on that Literary awards night in 2000? (He was a guest of a friend of mine)

PA: (thinks about it, then shakes his head) ...nah...

Me: ...ummm one of the UAAP games perhaps? I used to tag along with the photographers...

PA: (cuts me off)... I got it!

Me: (Amazed)...really? (At this point i was quite irritated of having never been remembered.)

PA: FRIENDSTER!!!! ...You're Trina's friend right? :)

Sigh... my profile's more memorable than the real thing...

___________________

Ah, the levels of relationships:

Intimates
:
Friends
:
Acquaintances
:
Friendsters!

___________________

Basically, a friendster is anyone you ever said hello to at least once in your life...

...or someone with the same name as somebody you once said hello to way back in the past...

...or someone who once said hello to someone with the same name as somebody you once said hello to sometime in your past life...

...And that is why it stops at the third degree. Otherwise this could go on and on...

...and we wouldnt want to have strangers on our friends list wouldn't we? :)
___________________

The only thing i hate about it is how sucky the system is sometimes.
Messages keep getting delayed, friend lists dont show up properly ... just damn crappy...

Oh well, at least now its better than the time Friendster kept changing my profile to "Dating/Serious relationship... MEN".
Ugh.
No wonder my inbox was suddenly full of gay messages...
___________________

The top 5 things i like about it...

1) Keeps you in touch with old friends (in case you're too cheap to send a text their way)

2) Its a much more visual Yahoo group thingie... (too bad you cant forward attachments though)

3) Can be a vanity site for those who publish their glamour pix... and befriend all the Chicksters, PrettyGirls and UberSexyBootyliciousImDHottestBabeInManila friendsters out there...

...the other side to this, my hotblooded male friends, is that these sites already pick out the beautiful ones so you dont have to look for them... :)

...and before i get hatemail from feminists... this goes for both sexes as well... ;)


4) Great scam engine for flattering testimonials... ...though in my case, ive deleted so many incriminating ones, ive stopped looking at testimonials altogether...

5) Great way to get to know a friend's pretty friend... "Eeey.... (joey style) ...you hang out with her? Cool... so when r we going out again?"

Fun isnt it? :)


So add me, ok?
Solo_flite@yahoo.com

...make sure its your pic...
I suck at names but i never forget a face.
No matter how horrible :P
