Friendster re-launched as a casual game portal

SHARE

Remember back in April when Friendster said it would be deleting all of your photos and content and restructuring itself to compliment, and not compete, with other social networks? Well, seems that the once king of social networking (in the Philippines at least) has re-launched itself as a casual game portal.

As far as we can tell, most of the games in the roster are of a casual persuasion, and it seems that you’ll be able to buy gold (Friendster coins) that you’ll be able to use in games to buy currency, items or whatnot.

You can buy Friendster coins by a variety of methods, including PayPal, 7-Eleven and Globe GCash.  You’ll also be able to play against other players, and see what your friends in your network are playing. It also seems that your old user accounts are still there, complete with your old friend network. You’ll also be able to link your Friendster account with your Facebook account, we suppose so your friends can see your gaming milestones and the like.
