Free TypePad weblogs on Friendster

Friendster now offers free weblogs powered by TypePad. The free weblogs are supported by advertising and limited to 250 megabytes of bandwidth each month. Friendster weblogs can be upgraded to regular TypePad subscription levels.

Is this a sign of things to come for the TypePad service? It could just be a partner offering or it could be TypePad but the paid barrier to entry of TypePad always made it a more distinguished address online.
