This excerpt is telling:
Facebook is “the teenage version of email,” said danah boyd, an assistant researcher at New York University specializing in youth and social media. “What’s so interesting about Facebook is that it’s not interesting to [teens]. That’s a big challenge for Facebook -- not because people won’t use it, but when they’re not passionate about it, you see a very different kind of user behavior than when someone is passionate about a service.”
Does this mean Facebook won't go away any time soon but it will increasingly lose relevance? Does this stress the need for additional acquisitions and the development of an AdSense-like competitor?
It is interesting that so few of our peers discuss Tumblr as well.
