Thanks Jacob, a really interesting post.

I think one of the interesting things about Facebook is that once you are into it, you tend to check it every day. I have some friends in Facebook who seems to be *always* online - updating their status and checking out on their friends. I'm guessing they will find a way to make money out of their service, although I agree that currently the ads just don't 'cut it'.

Hi Jacob - I feel the same way, and I wrote about this on my blog: http://www.illuminea.com/blog/blogging/are-we-reaching-the-social-media-saturation-point/

I'm no VC, but I really don't understand why people keep going for the advertising business model. It's so limited, especially with the advertising space getting smaller and smaller with more and more sites adopting this model.


Think about the value of facebook if it were a department within google. Just like YouTube. You wouldn't have a doubt Google would be able to turn these eyeballs into money. Right?
So now start thinking about billions...
