Why Facebook is catching up with Friendster in the Philippines

Filed Under:

Friendster or Facebook?
A few years ago, anyone you asked would scream "FS! FS!"
What the heck is Facebook?

Well... times are changing ladies and gentlemen.
At the rate Facebook is climbing the charts of the Philippines' most visited websites, there's a big possibility that Facebook will be overtaking Friendster's dominance in the Philippine market.


Now what could be the reasons why this is happening? Here are a few reasons:

1. Friendster is spammer galore.
Can't they find a way to stop this epidemic like Myspace did? This problem has been around for a long time and until now they haven't put an end to this problem. Just goes to show the dedication that these Friendster developers are putting in on their website.

2. Friendster Groups Forum Function is a nightmare
It's too outdated in my own opinion. If you compare it to the Facebook groups.

3. Friendster's apps suck
The apps! The apps! Facebook has a good variety of apps. Although receiving all those quiz updates can be a tad bit annoying.

4. Friendster heavily compresses images when you upload them sacrificing image quality.

How about you? What are your reasons for leaving Friendster?
