social networking sucks
No really it does.
Give it 12 months and no-one will use facebook anymore.
Remember Friends re-united…?
how quickly that became… soooo dotcom dated…
then myspace… which had a more musical niche and was THE place to network with friends and pretend you knew/interacted with “celebs” and musical heros…
Hi5… Tagged… bebo… snore.
now the big “web2.0” darling is facebook… bla bla bla. YAWN.
I have 1 big issue with all of these sites, they don’t connect with any others. The reason the “get Luke on facebook” campaign will most likely fail is that I don’t see the benefit in them anymore, sure I could spend hours trying to reconnect with the same people I reconnected with on FR or MS… I could spend hours customizing my page to match my other online pages… or uploads pics there… I won’t though.
If you want to make a mint on web 2.0 stocks, find a company that connects social networking sites together, wait for them to grow ridiculously huge and then be bought up by a big company, then sell. They won’t make any real revenue by doing so, but google/newscorp/microsoft or someone will still pay a sheeeeedload for them.
YouTube… hmmm… now thats a bit different, I’ll start using that more n more (or if it gets sued to hell, then move onto whatever takes its place) for business and personal vlogs… although it does have profile pages, friends and messaging.. I think its a different platform more than other SN sites.
