With all the talk about MySpace’s recent sale (and Justin Timberlake’s role in it), we’ve heard our share of jokes about the future of that other, even older ghost town of social networking — Friendster. Well, giggle no more, readers, because Friendster is back. As PSFK reports, the site has relaunched as a social gaming platform, with the tag line “living the game,” and offers your standard variety of online distractions: puzzles, RPGs, card games, shooters. Considering that Facebook is already a major gaming forum, it’s hard to see what will make the all-new Friendster relevant to those of us who abandoned it years ago. The saddest part? While everyone who still has a Friendster login can use that to access that site, you can also sign in with your Facebook account.
