ANYONE here have ANY idea how FB could make money? I mean BIG money, without hacking off their user base? The people who post on WebmasterWorld should have a clue, if there was a clue to be had by now.
Maybe the could use Adwords?
Seriously, it's amazing to me how The New York Times, who has struggled to get their huge online audience to be profitable as it needs to be to pay their bills, reports on FB & Twitter as if they are major business enterprises to-be.
Both of these web services have had tremendous social, economic and technological impacts on many other enterprises--including government, non-profits and businesses large and small. The same could be said to some degree about the NYT.
But, $$$$like-Google$$$? How? Where? When?
Yes, FB will be going into search this year, scrambling around like Microsoft has done and continues to do. And it will crash and burn against the established player because they don't have anything new to offer.
Facebook, the AOL of today. (Think about it. How is Facebook not like AOL?)
