“i have a friend request from some stranger on facebook and i delete it without looking at the profile because that doesn't seem natural. 'cause friendship should not be as easy as that. it's like people believe all you need to do is like the same bands in order to be soulmates. or books. omg... U like the outsiders 2... it's like we're the same person! no we're not. it's like we have the same english teacher. there's a difference.”

Jarod Kintz
“Online social networking allows a small fish in a small pond to become bigger than a big fish in a big pond—without the support or consent of the big fish. Your goal is to be the type of fish the consumer is fishing for. I’m in the mood for tilapia.”
Jarod Kintz, This Book is Not FOR SALE

“By early 2004 Tickle had become the second-largest social network after Friendster, with two million members actively connected to others and exchanging messages.”
David Kirkpatrick, The Facebook Effect: The Inside Story of the Company That is Connecting the World

“In Friendster's wake, a throng of social networking sites blossomed in San Francisco attempting to duplicate its appeal. Each tackled the idea of connecting people in a slightly different way. One was Tickle, a service which, on observing Friendster’s broad-based appeal, altered its own service, which had previously been based on self-administered quizzes and tests. Two of the other new social sites—LinkedIn and Tribe.net—were founded by friends of Abrams.”
David Kirkpatrick, The Facebook Effect: The Inside Story of the Company That is Connecting the World
