What social networks will be around in 10 years?

October 3rd, 2011 | by Jason Alba |

Check out this quote, from a TechCrunch article:

“I don’t think you can take for granted that any social network is going to be here 10 years from now.”

Who said that? Read the short TechCrunch article here.

A guy who had a very successful site in 2002, that was made irrelevent by another site (not myspace):

Heiferman started the photo sharing site in 2002 and says “it (Fotolog) became the number one social network” in several countries. It eventually sold for millions of dollars. However, Heiferman notes Fotolog’s top status eroded when Flickr hit the web and it made Heiferman realize that no company is totally secure against competition.

Will “the big three” be around in 10 years?  5 years?

Tools are tools.

    Not only are tools merely tools, but you need different tools at different times. If IBM had devoted itself to solely providing mechanical computational devices, it wouldn’t be around today.
