Everyone was like saying... "Let's switch to Facebook."
But thank God, Friendster.com is back.
Here are the reasons by the Friendster administration why their site went down.
Friendster admin named ex said:
There was a building-wide power outage at the QTS / Globix data center in Sunnyvale, California, USA where Friendster’s servers are co-located, along with about 50 other customers. As a result, the memory caching of data was affected. Since Friendster has 85M users, the cache is talking a considerable amount of time to build. Once the cache has been completely built, all friends will re-appear.
