Beyond Facebook: webmail killer app, lifestreaming, etc. (en vrac sur diigo 11/15/2007)
(« killer app » en référence à un échange avec Marin sur FB)

And with the recent stats indicating that there’s more attention being shown towards social networks than email services, it’s no wonder that Google and Yahoo have perked up efforts to innovate. With both giants having dabbled in social networking, from 360 to Orkut, it’s clear that replicating existing social networks just wouldn’t be enough.
While Facebook, Friendster and MySpace are the big names in social networking these days, tomorrow’s social networking giants could be Yahoo! and Google. And we’re not talking about Google’s OpenSocial platform.
Saul Hansell at the The New York Times is reporting that both Yahoo and Google are planning to use their email services as the core of their social networking strategy over time.
