Friendster is where I started. This is where I started to learn how to manipulate computers and see what is in the cyberspace. This is where I started to gain interest in blogging and this is where I had written my first blog post. I honestly admit that I have been addictive on it before. But even in Cyber-world, nothing is permanent and everything will come to an end.
I only got the information like a week ago that Friendster will delete users files by the end of May but from the latest updates, they are extending until 27th of June. To be honest, I rarely open this site since everyone seems to be much more of a facebook users now.
From what I have read, Friendster is actually reinventing itself and it's on its way on repositioning itself into a gaming site and it has to discontinue all the users social network account.
In order to save all the data like photos, messages, friends, testimonials, shoutouts, blogs, groups and the like, an application called "FRIENDSTER EXPORTER" was created to download all the files.
3. A message like this will appear if your file is ready for download after being generated from the system. Click on the link "Restart Download" below.
5. If you opted to go for the Faster Download. The exporter will ask you to verify your email address and password for the user account. After entering your email and password, hit "Download" button.
6.Then a zip file will be ready for download. From here, either you save or open it automatically with WinRar.zip which is a software you need to download and keep in your computer in order to extract or unzip the file.
7. Once you open the file, this can be extracted in WinRar.ZIP
7. Hit on the Friendster file, click on "Extract To" and choose in which folder you want to save it from your computer.
8. The extracted friendster file, once you open it, it can be viewed as html like this...
So this is how the Friendster Exporter works. Friendster is just reinventing itself in to something different which will hopefully give more fun and entertainment but this time not as a social networking site but an online gaming site... and I don't know which among the other social media platforms will come to an end, I just do hope that FACEBOOK can survive. =)
