More on Facebook

Since I talked about this in my last post, I thought that I should also share the news that Facebook has opened it's doors a little. There will now be public listings accessible via web searching. It's been discussed it on the Facebook blog. The search result feature will go live in a few weeks and it's something that individuals can turn off if they choose.

'X' is the next 'Y'

Is Facebook the future? Lots of people like to make predictions about 'the future'. I like to wait and see before I make my predictions. I am a Facebook member but I'm not sure I'd go as far as declaring it the future. It is an interesting experience. I am drawn back in by all the activity, friend notifications, application additions, etc. etc. 

But, you still need a username and password to get in. I also give my content away to someone that is not me. It's still a walled garden even though there is an openness for developers to build widgets, etc. That just gets more people in.

All I'm saying is predicting the future is a dicey game. :)
