  2. nobody cares for friendster here in north america. Guys, please read the book "throwing sheep in the boardroom" a very great book which discuss the impact of social media to ones life.

dear facebook,

today marks our 10th year together, i must say it has been a sweet journey. unfortunately, time has come for me to walk away.

i had high hopes for us when we started, especially at the time when my heart still beat for… what was her name again? ahh friendster (may she rest in peace). but you were all smile and poised, a neatly uniformed college girl full of hopes and overflowing with excitement. you had me at one poke!
