Friendster was limited and when the society was on a information high, friendster was still staggering trying to expand.

Facebook gave a place for people to update their status and then sharing links, youtube videos, articles and then it moved along with ads placements. Do I even need to remind you all on the farmville and whatever shit you can do on facebook. People are craving for new things, and facebook did just that. Every 6 months to a year, there's a new overhaul while every month, you get a new game.

Lastly, having newsfeed made it possible for people to get updates on people. My question is, how much more 'new shit' can Apple come up with, how many more things can Facebook come up with and will Twitter take over.
Ya but all the stuff you mentioned about above came out after Facebook was already became popular. It was quite popular already during the times when the status updates were still limited to "bob is: doing something something".

I think what differentiated it from Friendster was tagging people in pictures and having a wall. Friendster did have a wall-like feature but it was called testimonials so people weren't using it to communicate with each other and such.

I remember people referred to it as a stalker website because it tells you everything a person is doing and who they are talking to, etc.

I've never had a Friendster or myspace account, I was wondering what people's thoughts on those sites are? Facebook compared to Myspace is very clean and organized, with more personal features, I gathered that much. But I've never looked into friendster, which apparently is big in Asia.

On a side note, Google's Orkut is a massive failure in the states in my eyes. The thing is the child of the biggest company on the internet, and they couldn't get people to use it other than in Brazil and India... It's got a history of security leaks, and not the greatest name(opinion). I mean, everyone has a gmail account, or google as there homepage(it's practically equivalent to about: blank with how fast it loads), I'd find it incredibly convenient to have my social network web app sitting right below my search engine text box. Google's gotta work on making all there cloud apps more cross functional.

Just saw today, it was actually a brilliant film, despite all the things people say based on assumptions!
The screenplay was actually pretty amazing, especially the rowing race, and the whole concept of the way the story is laid out is very smart.

As my friend put it, "Everything David Fincher touches turns to gold".

I recommend it!

if you read into the history of both companies, they share growth similar stories and is a perfect example of what can happen to a company that takes venture capital money and another trying to do it on its own. Facebook aggressively courted outside capital and Friendster didn't do it until it was too late. With money to grow, Facebook was allowed to add outside expertise and constantly evolve

Well if you notice with Friendster they began heavily laying advertisements into the site as it progressed to get additional revenue. For me it began looking more and more like a cash grab trying to generate more and more revenue.

Lots of different iterations of social sites, myspace, apartment107, friendster, etc

Facebook started with a lot of simplicity and keep growing on that.

Last thoughts... it all started with AA for me..the asian connection..!

The game blew, alien 3 and panic room were ok, and benjamin button was pretty lame. Let's substitute fincher with Nolan. Everything Chris Nolan touches turns to gold.

HAHA AA, those were the days. Anybody remember Blackplanet? It has the exact same layout and everything as AA but of course it was meant for the black community.

Found it borderline boring. The guy who played Mark Zuckerburg was waaay to annoying for me to get into the movie. I'd describe it as a steak that is perfectly grilled and juicy but end up having no taste if that makes sense.

Really the only reason I want to see this film! This man is a brilliant director. Yes, I would most definitely rank Christopher Nolan higher than him, but he wouldn't be trailing too far behind on my ranking.

One of the main reasons friendster failed was due to hardware issues, they couldn't handle the amount of users on the system. There were big delays in loading pages and people gave it up on it and we to join other sites like Facebook. Thats one of the reasons why they booted Saverin from the co, he threatened the reliability of the site when he froze the bank account he set up.

I just watch this again today. I saw it in theaters weeks ago.

I forgot how funny it was, especially the twins.

"I'm 6'5", 220 and there's two of me!"

"This building is a 100 years older than the country it's in, so do be careful."

"...we're sitting in chairs..."

other than that it just made it look like the creator of facebook is an intellectual property thief and a douche
which parts of the movie are true?

i saw it, it wasn't really worth mentioning. it was ok since we all use facebook but i doubt it'll catch on to the other generations esp. when they have no idea.

they adapted it really well and the guy that played he main character did a really good job, the cast was really good IMHO.

Eduardo got 5% of the company, and his name is listed as one of the co-founders on the site again.

http://www.facebook.com/press/info.php?founderbios

Oh, and that 5% is worth about $1.5 billion in todays crazy world of market valuations.

I can't believe some of you find it boring.

I know there isn't any "action" in it...it's dialogue. Action through dialogue, much like Inglourious Basterds...except that movie had guns and shit happening as well.

Lots of talking but I was never bored or confused.
