Friendster VS Hatebook


If your answer is yes, maybe you should sign-up with the likes of Snubster, Enemybook, and Hatebook.

Whether it's Enemybook or Hatebook or Snubster, the agenda is the same -- to parody and poke fun, even 'enemy' so-called friends and connections -- acquired of course through social networking online.

Bryant Choung (26), technology consultant and founder of Snubster, says he didn't understand the kind of fake-friend war chests people were so busy building online. He would get Facebook requests from people he'd spoken to for a couple of minutes at a bar or a party, who'd then want to go online and peruse all of his photos and contacts. He just didn't get it.

Kevin Matulef (28), founder of Enemybook, says it started with a popular joke at Massachussets Institute of Technology (MIT) asking whether someone was a real- or a Facebook- friend. Though Enemybook now is a full-fledged site that lets people express themselves through their dislikes.

One thing that Choung and Matulef are agreed upon is that most people do-, rather should- take these sites as a joke, and not too seriously.

Murray Pomerance, Professor of Pop Culture Sociology at the Ryerson University in Toronto, begs to differ. He says most people take their online relationships very seriously, and a majority end up revealing things about themselves on these sites that they would never ever do face-to-face.

In the olden days, it wasn't done to display emotion, and now, there are Web sites where people can register what they're feeling, so that it's up there for everyone to see. Pomerance views the whole thing -- whether making friends or enemies -- as dangerous, to say the least.

Meanwhile, looking at the kind of membership these sites boast; we have a Facebook with 59 million active users worldwide, Snubster with 16,000 users worldwide, and Enemybook with 9,000 users the world over.

IN BAHASA

Jika jawaban Anda ya, mungkin Anda harus mencoba sign-up di Snubster, Enemybook, atau Hatebook.

Baik Enemybook atau Hatebook atau Snubster, pesan yang ingin disampaikan sama, yaitu keisengan/kejailan bahkan kemarahan yang dilontarkan kepada orang lain, yang tentu saja melalui jaringan online.

Bryant Choung (26), konsultan teknis dan pendiri Snubster, mengatakan, ia tidak mengerti sepenting apa jaringan pertemanan atau permusuhan yang sibuk diperbincangkan dan digemari, sampai-sampai ia diminta oleh seseorang tentang ID facebooknya ketika hanya berbicara beberapa menit di BAR atau pesta yang nantinya orang itu akan mencari-cari data/foto/daftar kontaknya disana. Ia hanya tidak mengerti.

Kevin Matulef (28), pendiri Enemybook, mengatakan, pembuatan enemybook bermula saat diwaktu senggang di Massachussets Institute of Technology (MIT), saat melontarkan joke tentang seseorang apakah benar-benar berteman atau tidak di facebook. Dari situlah terpikir bahwa bisa juga menjadi musuh, walaupun kini Enemybook telah ada untuk mengungkapkan ketidaksukaan mereka.

Satu hal dimana Choung dan Matulef sependapat adalah kebanyakan orang harusnya menganggap keberadaan situs ini hanya sebagai main-main saja, dan jangan dianggap suatu hal yang serius.

Sementara itu, jumlah anggota Facebook sekarang mencapai 59 juta pemakai diseluruh dunia, Snubster dengan 16 ribu pemakai diseluruh dunia , sedangkan Enemybook mencapai 9 ribu pemakai diseluruh dunia.
