The smartphone could be potentially disruptive for Facebook. Joining a social network will become as easy as installing an app. If your friends are distributed across several social networks, you just download those social networking apps too and become a member. All status updates will be viewable and manageable from one location - your phone - regardless of the number of social networks that you have joined.

Ryan thanks for the comment but I disagree with you. Running a social network is all about the data you collect from your users, and how you monetize that data. Facebook is currently collecting the most powerful ad targeting data you can get, and Google realized a few years ago that it needs that data. So yes, every person who parks their PII at Facebook and not at G+ is a loss for Google.

Facebook will soon find ways to monetize ad revenue. Easy, work with the local newspapers. People wants to see local business ads.

This is a kind of gut feeling that gradually creeps up on us - not one that easy to measure. Remember also that it will be more of an issue outside the US where Google's share of search is sometimes well over 90%.

Has to be easier than what I saw, then again could have been hiJacked to a foreign site run by a book of Faces designed to protect that other place.
