- Facebook is a world-wide service, not a California service. Why is this up to California?
- Facebook has over five hundred million users. That's five times more than the number of people who watch the SuperBowl. Whatever Facebook is doing, it must be pretty reasonable.
- Social network sites tend to only last about five years before the next new hotness overtakes them. The odds are against Facebook lasting all that long.
All of these matter, but the last one is most peculiar to Internet services. I really want to see what the next social site is like, and the next site after that. I don't relish a long sequence of watered-down Facebook clones with all of their paperwork properly stamped and in order. How dreary.
