I was invited to join www.friendster.com from a friend and found it to be
a "GREAT" way and a "FUN" way to meet new people
and to network. I really like the concept of having married people
or people in relationships on this site as well as us single ones.
It allows everyone to be on it and to be able to communicate. Your
friends know you best and maybe they can help you in meeting new
friends or even a potential mate. Being on Friendster helps you break
the ice and makings it a simpler process in meeting people. Since
I've been on Friendster I've introduced Friendster to my friends
and it's been fun. I really enjoy the Gallery and being able to post
things on the message board.

My friend got me to join Friendster, and so far I am really having
fun with it. I have already invited five people to join up with me.
I invited them because I am so far from them since I moved away,
so this is a fun way to keep in touch. I like Friendster because
I can connect with people all over. I have already found another
person who likes to scuba dive.

We all know that meeting people out in the wild is a risky proposition.
With Friendster, you meet people through people that you already
know and trust. So it's like having an infinite social network.
