My Friendster Account - Should I Delete or Not?! (Series)

Share This has been my question for sometime already...

For some reason I could not decide whether to delete my account in Friendster or not. In fact, I have not accessed it for almost 3 months now. Unlike before, it was my means to re-connect with old friends and relatives domiciled abroad. But now; I really do not see the point of keeping it active.

Reason to keep it?
  • Before Facebook, Multiply and all of these social networks emerged, it was only Friendster. Back then it kept us close to those people distant to where we are. Loyalty I guess.
  • I started blogging because of this site realizing how easy it was to connect with people.
  • There are still this few friends who are somewhat loyal to the site and prefers not to open an account with Facebook.
  • Commentaries from close friends that are fun to read again and again.
Why I should delete?
  • It is now very boring.
  • It is full of porn. Its site moderation is very poor!
  • Most users are unpleasant and
  • Spam! Spam! Spam!
  • It features got stuck in the 90's.
  • Layout makes me yawn.
  • I dont think there's goung to be an upgrade happening very soon.
  • Does not really attract web traffic for my blog.
  • Friendster is full of posers...
Will all of these being considered, I am giving myself a week to decide whether I will delete my account or not. If I eventually decided to keep it, then I should be active again and use it.

What do you think?

i've been thinking about the same thing too.. specially during the "hacking" season.. your reasons to keep it are same as mine.. but i'm no longer updating it... but i have friends there that are not yet my friends in facebook. so, maybe when i have managed to be connected with them in facebook, that's when i'll delete my friendster account. it doesn't bug me anyway..
