So my earlier Friendster redesign post actually garnered some interest from the company itself. One of their product managers emailed me and we had a nice little chat. Very cool people.
I can’t really talk about what we discussed, but they liked our little design experiment a lot. I wish I could say they saw it on this blog; it turned out someone there found it through Flickr and passed it to the higher-ups. What’s amazing is how fast it happened. It’s either a case of the right information getting to the right people at the right time, or someone having a very extended sensor network on the Web.
The one question I have is, with the Flickr gallery getting nearly 400 total hits, why has nobody commented? I suppose if they’re all from Friendster Inc. they’re not allowed to – NDAs and all that. Too bad Flickr doesn’t have referrer stats like TypePad. (Hint hint, Stewart.)
