Social Networks Are / Social Networks Aren't
(Originally posted on Open Source CU) I thought it’d be nice to start the week off with a rant inspired by three things:
- Jim Bruene’s recent post about the scrappy usage (his word: ‘anemic’) of financial apps in Facebook.
- My disagreement with this quote from the CUES Nexus blog (sorry, Lisa):
If you want to reach Gen Y, why not be where they are? The more than 68 million Facebook users (many of them young people) spend an average of 20 minutes a day on the site. And about 250,000 new users sign on every day. Some CUs are already there, waiting to greet them.
- That there are still high-fives given for corporate MySpace pages.
