Facebook 1. LinkedIn 0

Jason has a thoughtful post about Facebook, and the whole discussion of Facebook as a platform deserves serious attention. Jeff’s and Marc Andreessen’s posts are well worth a read, and my feedreader is full of Facebook prophecies. 

But in this post I don’t want to explore the platform implications of Facebook, significant though they maybe. I’ll just quote from a friend request I received this morning from an old university friend.

“this thing is much more fun than LinkedIn, dammit!”




There is a message in this for us enterprisey software types. Fun is a user requirement.
