A little birdie told me that Friendster (aka, the company that fires employees for blogging non-secrets) has launched a new blog/RSS oriented feature--presumably in an effort to remain marginally relevant.
I shit you not.
I can't verify it first hand, since I have no Friendster account anymore. And most of my friends don't either. (Imagine that!)
But they've published some help pages related to it, including What is RSS? and I entered my RSS link in my profile, but I still don't see my entries. Why?.
And, here's a screenshot of how they're advertising it.
So I guess blogs are a Good Thing now--as long as they're not written by an employee. Can you get fired by listing a blog in your profile if you're a Friendster employee? Or does that merely merit a demotion?
Anyone know what User-Agent string they're using? Does it respect robots.txt?
