Harnessing Social Networks - Forbes
http://www.forbes.com/2007/08/22/social ... popstories
Advertisers believe that they need some way to reach their customers. They have relied on push-based messages and paid-for monologues beamed out at their customers since the start of the industrial revolution.

Online social networks may be their next big hope ...

there are also complications that suggest limits to replacing traditional advertising with social network distribution of promotional messages:

--Putting up a social networking Web site does not guarantee loyal viewership.
--Loyal viewership does not guarantee trust in promotional messages.
--Trust is fragile and can easily be destroyed.

The fragility of trust in turn suggests two further problems.

--Content cannot be controlled. Attempting to censor users and exercise control over the content they post is not compatible with trust. Users will say what they want, which is not necessarily what producers want said.
--Trust cannot necessarily be monetized. Attempting to charge companies for promotional messages and then offering to pay users for promoting products to virtual friends online will be catastrophic.

The Internet is transparent and attempts at manipulation quickly become visible. Censoring content and paying for viral marketing and anonymous sock puppeting--using anonymous posts or posts under pseudonyms to promote yourself or your company online--will quickly destroy trust, and with it, any value the Web site might have enjoyed as a means of product promotions.

Ad nauseam: Facebook users to cop the hard sell
http://www.smh.com.au/news/web/ad-nause ... 84640.html
The Facebook free ride is over as the social network now seeks to turn its 50-million-strong user base into an army of viral marketers.

It comes as the company is under intense pressure to cash in on the wealth of personal data it has collected, following a $US250 million ($268 million) investment from Microsoft, which valued the company at $US15 billion.

Tim Berners-Lee dream for Facebook

Tim Berners-Lee dream for Facebook five years hence
http://blogs.zdnet.com/BTL/?p=7168
Responding to a question from Robert Scoble, he predicts, or hopes, that all the programming of new Facebooks in five years time will be done at the application level rather than the presentation or document level and provide a consistent way of looking at different aspects of people across the Web.
