Friendster adds blogs

rcp showed me that Friendster added free/paid blogs today (powered by TypePad) as well as photo album upload. All of this only reinforces my view that Friendster is just a glorified homepage-hosting service (Geocities++), but I'm glad to see that TypePad is getting some love. My hope is that people realize that Friendster isn't very different from a service like LJ and Blogger, except that the latter two are open, and the era of closed, training-wheel, rigid, turgid social network sites will come to an end (so I can cancel my semi-secret Friendster snooping account). Then again, AOL is still around, and, of course, LJ and Blogger still lack the network navigation/search capabilities of Friendster/Orkut/etc...
