Something must be wrong with Friendster, because it reports that I’ve got 65,896 people in my personal online network. That can’t be correct, as I don’t even have 6.5896 people in my real-world network.
I was rooting around my Friendster network, and discovered this interesting fact: there are 3054 people ((291 of them in Vancouver)) in my network who report that they are living in an open marriage. That’s 4.6%–surely that’s above the national average. I imagine social software network demographics tend toward the young and liberal.
Incidentally, if you want to extend my Friendster empire even further, you can reach me with this email address: darren at darrenbarefoot dot com.
Meanwhile, I also checked out People Link, the latest network to get some play. They trade in FOAF (friend of a friend) files, which are XML files used to describe you, your site and your connection to others. Here’s my hastily created FOAF file.
