The redesigned Friendster came about through an enduring passion to make a difference. Over the years, we have built a vibrant community and received valuable support and encouragement.

However, due to the evolving landscape in our challenging industry, the online gaming community did not engage us much as we had hoped for. Profound development in the gaming industry has also lead us to rethink our strategic priorities.

We have thus made the decision to take a break and pause our services effective June 14, 2015.

We remained enthusiastic to try new things in the future and we look forward to providing more information on Friendster's imminent direction in time to come. We cordially invite you to join our email distribution list to be notified as soon as this information becomes available.
