Facebook ~ AOL?   posted by Razib @ 8/12/2007 03:31:00 PM

Facebook Grows Up:
What does Facebook get from this? If all goes well, much of what people do on the Internet will be accomplished within Facebook. Instead of eBay, you can buy in Facebook's marketplace. Instead of iTunes, there's iLike. In other words, Zuckerberg wants to keep you-student, graduate or graybeard-logged on to Facebook, organizing virtually everything you do via the social graph.

AOL, PointCast, the portal sites. I think the past 10 years has shown that you better focus on what you can do well before doing everything.
