As far as current traffic impact, it probably isn't worth much. On the other hand, the demographic match of iPhone and Facebook users is pretty good, and if they can become the defacto social network for iPhone users that could pay dividends down the road.

I didn't mean to suggest that Facebook is struggling - yet.
But they've turned their back on their core user group in order to attract a broader one. They violated the trust of their users - by significantly weakening the privacy and security of their site - which was a key feature for their users.
I think lawsuits will inevitably result. Do I think that will break Facebook?
No - but I think it's likely that losing sight of what was unique about the site could.
