Facebook, the new Linked-In?
I am not the only one that“™s noticed my Facebook invitations are increasing and my Linked-In invitations are falling. Having well over 500 connections on Linked-In, I feel connected but stabilized in my number of connections. Facebook, on the other hand is building up steam.
Facebook, once reserved for students, recently opened up their site to anyone that wanted to join. The response was overwhelming and The Wall St. Journal this week referred to Facebook as an “online gold rush“. It seems that Facebook is evolving past Linked-In because it is more customizable and allows independent developers to write applications that work within their user community.
While Linked-In limits you to their applications. Facebook reports that 70,000 developers have signed up for the tools needed to build applications on their site.
So one question, who do you think will be bringing out the newest and best applications? Need to know more? Come to the East Coast“™s largest Web 2.0 for business event on November 1st.
