Social Networking: The Future
Editor’s note: This is the third of a three-part guest post by venture capitalist Mark Suster of GRP Partners on “Social Networking: The Past, Present, And Future.” Read Part I and Part II first. This series is an adaptation of a recent talk Suster gave at the Caltech / MIT Enterprise Forum on “the future of social networking.” You can watch the video here , or you can scroll quickly through the Powerpoint slides embedded at the bottom of the post or here on DocStoc. Follow him on Twitter @msuster. In my first post I talked about the history of social networking from 1985-2002 dominated by CompuServe, AOL & Yahoo! 1. Right now our social graph (whom we are connected to and their key information like email addresses) is mostly held captive by Facebook. Facebook will succumb to pressure and over time make this available to us to allow us more choice in being part of several social networks without having to spam all of our friends again. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
