We’ll see an (already developing) split between the kind of casual social “networking” as offered by the likes of Facebook and the more in-depth and active networking of other services. In its simplest terms I think a case of networking with people you already know, as opposed to networking with people you don’t.
I talked about Facebook being “useless” in a post on sarahintampa. But I think whereas many early adopters are looking for utility, the masses aren’t. It’s not an issue for them that Facebook has no “use” – as tourists on the internet it’s a place that’s fine for them to pop into, waste a few minutes and look at some photos, and then leave.
