  1. Saying Friendster, Orkut and Myspace are “cooling off” is a bit of an understatement! I can’t imagine active users on any of them is very high, interesting graphic otherwise though!

    1. Yes, I hear you. Orkut has its user base in countries like Brazil and India but it looks like even in those spots the users are exiting. I know MySpace has its new look and is promoting itself again, but I still haven’t seen much positive news about that. Thank you for stopping by and for the comment!

  2. So far, the configuration can’t be any simpler. Probably their next enhancement that they can still further enhance is to move their configuration to the cloud.
