This Week in Asia Episode 63: The End of Friendster

The This Week In Asia crew is back this week with a laser focus on acquisitions that are spreading across Asia, with Transfer-To and Unoh being the biggest beneficiaries, and what’s more with Temasek investing in Tudou, one of the top video sharing sites in China. Of course, we celebrated the final end of Friendster as the company MOL who acquired them, sold the set of social networing patents to Facebook with an exclusive deal of distributing FB credits in Southeast Asia. If you think that news of that nature, what about hearing our friend and guest on the show, Brian Wong has successfully gotten venture capital of $200K with Tru Ventures for his new company and, also possibly one of the youngest entrepreneurs funded in Silicon Valley.
