People's attention is already fragmented enough trying to keep track of all their user accounts and passwords scattered everywhere.
Perhaps not as much as it might seem, I watched TV a little tonight and the ONLY social sites any channel or personality wanted me to hook up with them on were Twitter and Facebook. One is like instant messages, the other has a profile... the rest seem to be redundant according to what I saw.
I'd love to read about some cutting edge features in socl that will make it a cut above but the establishment is already set so it would have to be something fantastic indeed.
P.S. ANY personal information gathered by ANY social site has monetary value for site owners, advertisers and product sellers and that's why they will continue coming out of the woodwork. Getting people to give it up voluntarily as part of a service is extremely profitable.
