How Not to....Pt 39198483


Facebook builds a social net, demographics aren't the point.

Yahoo builds a social net, a "communications service for young people".

Facebook doesn't work because of kids - it works because it allocates attention hyperefficiently, whether you're a kid or a grown-up (just take a look at your favorite lamester venture guy's wall).

Talk about needing fresh DNA.

As for Nokia's social net...c'mon guys, you should have built an iPhone, not a social net...
