  1. It’s true they are way overhyped. My theory is that the Microsoft deal made them mildly credible. Without it they’d be just another high-traffic, high burn rate community site. It’s hard to know how this one plays out five years from now.

  2. There is a petition going around Facebook to stop it from being shut down. In fact, I think that it’s a group on FB. Heard any rumors to that effect?

  3. Yep – there is a group called “Please do not shut down facebook”.

    Confidentiality issues have seemed to undermine the reputation as there is often transmission to third party with some apps one can add … sigh …

    I am still keeping my facebook up, until it dies. My antennae not sure it will stand by what it wants to deliver – privacy. But maybe it is also all that third-party apps ruining a good thing for money. (Certainly needed)

    This metaverse freeloading brander suggests: Overtly offer premium membership accounts, make it sure the To$ are read, and get rid of most third party software or give them a stamp of approval. Because many of us might be willing to put the credit card on the line if only as overtly publicized as over LinkedIn for example. Get rid of the gimmicks, Facebook, and get a more serious image.

    There 🙂

  4. Wow. Lots of negative comments about Facebook. I’ve been using a number of social networks, but Facebook is probably the best out there. Xanga is a good design, but Facebook is currently kicking it. MySpace I hate. LinkedIn is good, but for a different market segment…So Facebook is the killer all-around social network.

  5. MSFT giving credability to Facebook? That makes them look even worse cause all I see on there are ads for free ring tones and online college degrees. The same stuff I see on other crap websites. I’d be shocked if they’re even profitable right now.

    Would have to think most advertisers will just go the remnant route for $0.35 CPMs instead of paying $8CPM cause no way Facebook can sell even 1/5th of its inventory
