      Fact is that at this same moment some people are seeing a decline in FB member numbers.

    A billion a year maybe in earnings, lower user counts in 1st world countries, and 100 billion valuation?

      Indeed, FB has waited too long, its clearly already at its peak (growing users slower than 6 months ago, and loosing users in the US and canada especially) in terms of ability to make money. Everyone who really wants a FB account has one, and you can never have perfect retention, people will slowly leave, then when a rival comes up thats better people will leave en-masse.
      If they had put themselves on the stockmarket a year ago or even 6 months ago i think they would have done better. People are starting to look for FB alternatives to invest in because many suspect that within a few years, it’ll be going the way of myspace.

        A FB -ship is a bit creepy. It’s only safe if you only have a limited amount of “friends”, with whome you can “share” a certain group of information. If you want to share another type of information with another group of people, the best thing to do is to open another account. But the hype thingy of having unaccountable amounts of “friends” is the worst way to use FB. But it’s the way they got it sold to the public. So, what’s the impact of that idea to the amount memberschips?

        All true if FB itself is trustworthy, of course, and I think people start to doubt that.

        Anyway: if it is about a limited amount of people, why not just… use your e-mail client? 🙂

          [quote<]"...if FB itself is trustworthy, of course, and I think people start to doubt that"[/quote<] I don't think anyone has believed that for a looooonnnngggg time now.

          Which is why the LinkedIn IPO was probably a better long-term bet on social networking.

            • indeego
            • 9 years ago

            LinkedIn spams its users and sells to third party lists. Good luck getting off those spam lists. It also essentially has zero privacy policy, at least FB attempts one.

            You get spam from LinkedIn? I think I’ve gotten maybe one email a month from them that is not regarding my direct contacts.

      The outlook for me is nice. Fair CPU performance with pretty solid GPU performance. Both things with a proper battery life.

      Performance wise is like my laptop maybe but there is a huge improvement in battery life.

      Waiting for the Podcast also.
