Facebook for all …

I posted this to Facebook …

I don’t see the big deal about why Facebook should be closed to only students. The power of social networking is to expand it as broadly as possible. If they don’t, Facebook may become like Friendster, GeoCities :(, and Webring and fade into a realm of irrelevance.

In fact, I urge Facebook, MySpace, Yahoo!, Google, Microsoft, and LinkedIn to work together on a standard so that we only need one profile that can be linked to any of the other social networking sites. I have an account on each of those for the benefit of my circles of friends, family, and acquaintances who only use those sites. I believe the future will actually be defined by the company that first breaks out and opens up their now closed social network.
