Passado then expanded rapidly and became one of the most successful European reunion platform for school friends and work colleagues. Nowadays it is re-building itself to be the leading European Social Network. In the past few years Wasabi has added more Web 2.0 functionality including blogging, photo sharing, reviews and a groups section. With growing communities in Spain, France, Germany and recently Italy. The Headquarters of Wasabi are situated in London /Great Britain. In late 2008, i-CD Publishing Ltd, the legal entity behind Wasabi, filed a lawsuit against its former employee, Albert Popkov, for launching a popular Russian social networking site odnoklassniki.ru claiming that he illegally used some of the data and knowledge acquired during his work on Passado project.
