Social Computing Viewpoint: Facebook’s Secret Plan

Another  Facebook snapshot, this one from Polaris VC Sim Simeonov

Will Facebook become the next Microsoft, the next AOL or Google, or Visual Basic? I think the answer is none of the above. FB wants to be a new type of platform company where data and code are mashed up with people. We haven't seen one of those yet. As Facebook touches more and more of people's lives, more questions will come up. Hopefully, these will get resolved quickly so that a thriving ecosystem spawns on top of F8 + Parakey.
