Both basically provide rooms for connecting people, mostly friends.
But why must I have accounts for both?
Do both differ significantly that I must register both accounts?
Isn’t it enough just to have one and collect as many people I adopt as friends as possible?
Yes. I have both accounts, but I have my own ways of handling the 2 accounts.
Simply, Friendster is for any people who’d like to know me, who’d like to add me as friend, and whom I’d like to know of and whom I’d like to add as friend. Simply anyone. See my Friendster. Currently I got 600 friends and it’s growing from time to time.
Unlike the Friendster, my Facebook is limited to people whom I really know in real life; whom I’ve dealt with, whom I’ve shared some of my time with, whom I really interested to know of, whom I’ve seen their faces at least by my own eyes. And this limitation explains why I only got a small number of friends added in the account.
What makes I personally put these this way is that, the Friendster’s nature is more like to connect people without any real touch to the heart. Unlike Facebook in which you can virtually poke your friends, send gifts and cards, and many more, which most probably would touch the heart of the poked person and the receiver of the gifts and cards (for examples), Friendster is basically just a room for knowing people. The bulletin board would be the best place to post news and updates, from which it is an advantage in Friendster, as far as I concern.
But I have to admit that I don’t like people writing personal surveys and post it in the bulletin board. Do you really actually write those things on a piece of paper and then paste it on the bulletin board in your college? Come on. Find some life...
Apart from that, there's one thing I don’t like about Facebook. Like my case, I use slow internet connection, 155.2 kbps. I usually cannot approve friends who want to add me, I cannot post my words to the walls and many more because it uses unusual browser coding (I don’t know the term, flash maybe?) that usually errors would bring me to disappointment every time I log in into my Facebook account. Duh~
So what’s next? Circle? Kawanster? Myspace? Wayn? Naaah... I think for now I have it enough already.
You'd like to add me as friend in the accounts? My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not hesitate to add me eh~
Friends, let them be millions. Foes, let them be none.

*Ok. I tried to find the link to my Facebook profile, but as i said, it's hard to use it using slow internet connection. I could not log in. Duh~
