one billion people: not bad Mark!

Mark Zuckerberg just announced one billion users on facebook!
Does anyone else want to try to reach the same audience?

the social network

I just saw “The social network“, the movie about the rise of facebook.

I found very interesting seeing how Mark Zuckerberg put together the pieces of his creature. Two main ingredients were at the basis: his deep consciousness of what his creature should be AND an ear always open to listen to what people have in mind.

Mark says: “We are talking about taking the entire social experience of the college and put it online.

Mark had the ability to perceive that “the social experience of the college” can be so fascinated and attracting for people AND the capacity to read the Web and to put online such an experience.

If and when you are really able to have such a clear line in your mind and simultaneously take in consideration the needs of your users then, I think, you reached the “secret” for your success.

Are we close to the end of the bubble?

Always more and more people talk a lot about the bubble. Maybe the money facebook is able to absorb from the market is a tangible example…

To me, the great difference between now and the early 2000 is that today only some companies are close to crash while at that time most of the start-ups were close to collapse. And this shows the solidity of the Net today.

Let’s see what will happen.
