Facebook pulling a Friendster?

So, I was checking out things on my Facebook page today since a couple friends sent messages or otherwise on the site.  Well, it seems to be incredibly sloooooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.  I remember the old days of Friendster when it caught on fire & they just couldn’t handle all the traffic.  Funny…

Well, I’m wondering if Facebook is getting too big for their own britches.   The Ops manager is an old Amazon guy from Biz Development…maybe he may be wishing he did Ops once before he encountered what he’s having to handle now at Facebook?  🙂 

I did ping the site vs. Yahoo and a couple other sites & actually Yahoo’s latency is about 1/3 higher than Facebook, but then again, the applications Facebook has in it now are growing to be pretty large and possibly more bandwidth.  Also, I’m here in Korea…maybe they haven’t built out the redundancy for Asia yet?  Mark, you’d better get on it…you’re getting a little too popular for your own britches.  😉  (am I spelling britches right?  lol…)
