I really think that sites like facebook etc shouldn't exist.They are only bad for the relationships between people.BAN them!

Great distinctions. It is so important that we identify who is around and keep them separate in our dealings. and ou know, instead of telling people to implement comment moderation, you could just stop leaving stupid looney-bin spam comments everywhere.


Some see twitter as a passing fad ( http://www.rapidpig.com ) that is wholly endorsed by the various celebrities etc, shame really as it does have its place in branding and networking.


Screw this. It's a HUGE invasion of privacy. I don't need nor want websites to know who I am, any of my personal information, nor who my friends are. I've deleted my account. Good riddance.

Facebook won’t be stopped in its tracks unless or until another network emerges that offers something faster, slicker, easier or sexier.Any diehard Facebooker will admit the service ain’t perfect, but here is a tech startup that figured out a long time ago how to get people to spread the word about it.

You seem to have got the niche from the root, Awesome work



I am not so sure that Facebook has come out of the attention of many, in fact, the more I speak to people, the more seem to wander away from twitter in search of something more, which of course FB offers.
