While LinkedIn recently found a way to start charging fees, it looks like Friendster is doing the same with its launch of a blogging platform. Of course, the details aren't that interesting. It's really just Six Apart's Typepad rebranded for Friendster -- so Friendster is simply acting as a channel for Six Apart. That might be good for a few extra customers for Six Apart, but it's unclear where the real appeal is to have a blog on Friendster as opposed to somewhere else where you would have more control over it (and less fear of it disappearing should Friendster disappear). There's nothing wrong with them offering this, of course, it's just not clear where the real synergy is between their core social networking service and the blogging offering exists.
