Facebook. It’s everything MySpace wants to be but isn’t. Chris Pirillo lists good reasons why.
It’s easy to use, powerful, with an open platform. One nice feature for new users, it’ll check your online email accounts for Facebook users, then add them as friends. It makes MySpace look like the dull, kludgy, closed platform that it is. Yes, I’m late to the party on this one, had about given up on social networking sites since the software was often ponderous and dumb. But no more.
There’s a reason Facebook rejected a billion dollar offer. Maybe they saw something much bigger and more viral. As an example, music sharing service iIlike recently created an add-on to Facebook, and are now signing up signing up 300,000 new accounts a day. That’s the powerful of the open platform that Facebook provides.
Here’s my Facebook entry. Add me as a friend!
