Thank you for visiting Friendster. While our goal is to give you 24-hour access to Friendster, from time to time, we need to do maintenance to ensure you have the best possible experience. We will be back online shortly.
Here are some FAQs to help address your concerns:
What happened to my friends?
Currently, the number of friends in the friends list is being displayed incorrectly.
Are my friends lost permanently?
No. The data for all friend connections is intact and is not lost.
When can this be fixed?
Friendster is currently working on this problem and we hope to have this fixed within 24 hours.
Can I still add friends while the problem has not yet been fixed?
Yes, users can still add new friends and use other features of the site.
What caused this problem?
There was a building-wide power outage at the QTS / Globix data center in Sunnyvale, California, USA where Friendster’s servers are co-located, along with about 50 other customers. As a result, the memory caching of data was affected. Since Friendster has 85 million users, the cache is taking a considerable amount of time to build. Once the cache has been completely built, all friends will re-appear.
