Friendster will Remove Personal Data by May 31

From being a social network, Friendster will now overhaul its image to games and entertainment oriented hub.

As an original player in the social networking arena, Facebook will now change its image from “connecting smiles” to game and entertainment oriented mode. That said, all profile details that the site has been saving for almost a decade will be deleted on May 31, 2011. But Friendster will not totally remove your profile, they will just strip the rich information that seems to be more onerous to store compare to basic profile facts.

If you want to save your old profile details – as well as your comments, pictures, messages, blogs and groups – you can extract them using the Friendster Exporter. The Friendster Exporter will download your profile details as .zip, or you can send your photos to Flickr, Photobucket or Multiply.

“If you do not wish to keep all this history or information, then you do not need to do anything. Whether you use the Exporter or not, your Friendster account will not be deleted. Your list of friends will be preserved, along with your basic profile information. Your wallet and game details will also remain unchanged.”

Facebook Buys $40 Million Worth of Social Networking Patents

Written on August 06, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

Comments Off

Facebook continues its online domination by acquiring a wide array of patents on social media, getting almost everything covered, from the news feed to photo tagging, to your friends list and to the degree of your connections to the people in your network.

The 500-million-populated Facebook accelerates even further from the rest of its contemporaries, as it obtains 18 key patents related to social media. It happened as a silent turnover of Friendster’s patents to the undisputed social network. Friendster, if you still recall, used to be the popular networking site almost a decade ago. Friendster reportedly sold it for $40 million.

Parts of the patents’ coverage contain the “system and method for managing an online social network” and the “system, method and apparatus for connecting users in an online computer system based on their relationships within social networks.” They appear broad, but they cover basically every intellectual property within the operations of a social network.

The acquisition proves as a big advantage to the largest social network in the world. More opportunity to file infringement cases against its contemporaries came with the selling of Friendster’s patents to Facebook.
