The Google Operating System blog has a good list of Google type of predictions for 2008.
However, in point one ther’s this…
“If Google doesn’t understand that your Gmail contacts aren’t necessarily your friends, we’ll see a huge privacy backslash.”
How difficult can this be to understand? And why hasn’t Facebook realised it already? I want to present different views of myself to different populations; it’s not rocket science.
The first network that gets this right will have a massive advantage over the others.
