Long time readers know I'm no fan of Friendster. But I've heard from multiple sources that the following are (or soon will be) true:

  • CEO Scott Sassa is out
  • Layoffs
  • More VC funding (even though they were cashflow positive)

Discuss. Or not.

(Friendster hackers: If you're looking for another job, ping me. I know folks hiring, both at Yahoo! and elsewhere.)

Update: More on this at The Tech Beat. Thanks for the credit, guys. And now Jeff is woried about the movie. Heh. :-)
