With over 27 million users at friendster, is it possible that Yahoo! 360 has over double the market share over friendster? Perhaps I've underestimated Yahoo! 360?


Yahoo Network has much more than 27 millions user and current blogomania effects on Yahoo 360 traffic and ratings.. Just look at average session time only 11 minutes comparing to 20 minutes at Friendster... I think that blog service is different from social networking like FriendSter or MySpace

It's the tyranny of choice on a grand scale. Finding a life partner and committing to a relationship is a difficult process. When you offer so many choices, at least many thousands of potential relationships even after the most intensive sorting, you see the system itself inhibiting the success of the process. We as humans don't do well when presented with overwhelming large options. Combine this with reluctance to compromise and low costs of switching and you see why online dating is inherently problematic. It has been good for the inventors, but now the business model is not even good for them. I am biased to be sure, but a local, traditional matchmaker will always do a better job than you will.
