Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed

Tag Archives: Facebook

Sean’s analysis is both entertaining and interesting. Sean certainly has vision (Napster, Plaxo, Facebook) and I agree with most of his points. However, why does everything come down to who wins and who loses? Last month analysts were drooling over the fact that Apple’s market share eclipsed Microsoft. Now Sean is making a case for why Facebook and Twitter will grow past Google.

Who cares?

Reality is that Facebook will be the dominate social network and Google will be the dominate search engine. Sean is comparing apples and oranges. Saying that Facebook will surpass Google is like saying Polo is going to surpass Nike… it doesn’t make any sense.

The fact is that Google will continue to be Google. I will always need to search for things on the Internet. Facebook will always be Facebook. I like staying in touch with friends and family and sharing information with them. I take a dump everyday. I also brush my teeth everyday. I don’t do them together. Sure, they both happen in the bathroom, but they’re two different things.

In the future Facebook, Google and Twitter will ALL be successful, and they will all coexist happily ever after.
