A topic that recently came up was the growth of Social Media in the last 5 years which brought us on to the Noughties Social Networking Sites.
At one time, Friendster had more than 100 million users.
Google offered the owners of Friendster million dollars for the site a year after it was founded. More than decade after its founding, Friendster is still around, but now it’s a gaming site and has become one of the great lessons of the young century about online business.
It’s always a good idea to glean concepts from successful people and ventures to discover ways to create your own success.
It also never hurts to learn from the mistakes of others, because, as Edmund Burke advised us almost 300 years ago: those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it. Friendster was a social network founded in 2002, predating My Space and Facebook.
