I think that ATS should come with features that make it easy to integrate with Facebook if a member wants to. More and more sites are doing this, like
RSS feeds or various other methods.
That being said - I believe that Facebook might be on its way out. Check out Diaspora
. It is an open-source
project that is a reaction to Facebook's privacy policies.
"We believe that privacy and connectedness do not have to be mutually exclusive"
Basically, this network will be software based, similar to P2P sharing networks, only what gets shared is totally controlled by the user. The emphasis
will be on "info" and interaction with your chosen contacts.
I just read about this on Slashdot.org and believe that it has a good chance of catching on and becoming the "facebook killer".
Being open-source, third-party developers will be able to create add-ons and plugins that will allow certain functionality and connectivity with
existing sites. SO: I think it could be a great solution for what this thread is addressing.
Take a look at the site, their stance on this issue is congruous with the mindset of ATS, I believe.
