@TheGibson that article made me consider several things:

- Facebook most likely found his location by geolocating nearby WiFi MAC addresses. Creepy.

- Despite its success the Facebook site *is* a temporary blip on the radar. To survive as a company they have to branch out to other, unrelated industries.

Unfortunately (for them) they think like a typical silicon valley tech company and invest in stuff like more social, ads and fringe products like the Oculus.

They can't think "traditional".

@polychrome @thegibson They've bought sooo much though. How many people have you heard say "I'm quitting Facebook and just using WhatsApp" not realizing FB owns WhatsApp, Instagram .. like everything .. They've bought so much of their competition.

In a way it's really good, because I don't think another monolith can take them on at this point. I think the future has to be distributed/federated. Unlike when Diaspora was launched, it's easier to run hosted services now.
