Word of the day: Kawanster

Wednesday, September 08, 2004

kawanster - Pronunciation Key (ka-uan-ster)
n.
1. Malaysian Trully Community Portal (note: yeah, that's their tag line)
2. Place to meet people, make new friends and keep in contact with your friends and loved ones.
3. Unoriginal clone of friendster.

Just found out that Malaysia has it's own Friendster clone, Kawanster! hahaha.. I don't intend to be mean or want to imply anything but this is really a unoriginal clone of friendster. If you're able to find kawanster, you'll notice the uncanny design of the original friendster and the big Yahoo! Messenger smiley. Sighh.. there goes originality and innovation. I reckon it's ok if the developers copy the idea and the friendster concept but to copy the design of the website as well? At least they've added the forum and the blog feature. :P
Nevertheless, good effort.
