Friendster just wrote in to tell us it has been granted a second social networking patent. The patent basically covers uploading a photo and associating it with someone you are connected to on an online social network. Friendster also claims it should extend to “videos, audio, comments, and any other content type, supported in public or private forums, within a social network.” There’s no comment so far about the company’s plans to pursue enforcement. Though people can’t stop rehashing its failures, Friendster is hoping it call pull Act II of the distraction campaign that won quite a lot of press and 10 million bucks from its VCs.
