So for the next five or 10 years the question isn’t going to be, does Facebook get to 2 billion or 3 billion? I mean, that’s obviously one question. But the bigger question is, what services can get built now that every company can assume they can get access to knowing who everyone’s friends are. I think that’s going to be really transformative. We’ve already seen some of that in games and media, music, TV, video, that type of stuff. But I think there’s about to be a big push in commerce.
Really, really fucking scary are the services which can be built if any company or government “can assume they can get access to knowing who everyone’s friends are”.
Plus, are those of us not on Facebook about to enter a kind of ghetto?
