SixApart gets friendly with Friendster
SixApart has teamed up with social networking site Friendster to offer Friendster Blogs, a paid blogging service power by SixApart’s TypePad.
Pricing for the new service is identical to the Friendster-less TypePad service.
The service has currently launched in beta status and is restricted to users in the United States and Canada.
ZDNet notes that Friendster recently fired an employee who kept a blog that included what she termed “publicly available” information about the company.
The blogging service is governed by the Terms of Service of both SixApart and Friendster, and forbids “impersonation of any person or entity, including, but not limited to, a Friendster or Six Apart official, forum leader, guide or host, or falsely stating or otherwise misrepresenting your affiliation with a person or entity”.
Whilst we are not aware of any attempts at impersonating Mena Trott aside from the occasional 1990’s goth site, users have been warned!
In keeping with their general PR policy of openness and transparency, at the time of writing SixApart has provided no comment on the deal.
