Friendster in San Francisco Chronicle

The San Francisco Chronicle ran an article on Friendster today. It’s a well-done overview piece and references users, researchers, funders, Jonathan and privacy folks.

It’s really amusing to hear that Jonathan thinks he can get rid of fake users over time. The only way i can imagine him doing it will cause him to also lose a lot of real people, rendering parts of the network useless. [Of course, that’s the fun in watching this meme play out. I make my bets as to what people’s next step will be and what the reprocussions will be and see if i’m right. So far, i’m not doing so badly.]
