Is that a possibility? Could Facebook’s continuing growth and evolution, establish it as the mandatory universal channel for companies and individuals to communicate, share and shop? Facebook is the canary in the coal mine that is displaying a seminal shift in how we are using the internet and marketing on the Web.
