Friendster was one of the first social networks when it launched in 2002, preceding MySpace, LinkedIn and Facebook.
The one that got away, Myspace is the pre-Facebook social network site that everyone remembers. Founders Tom Anderson and Chris DeWolf learned from Friendsters mistakes and prioritised Myspaces scalability in order to avoid the same fate as Friendster.
