Hi all,

I certainly plan to join the Facebook exodus. I am confident a lot of  
others on iDC will do so as well. It was just a matter of time,  
waiting for the right moment. Now it's there: May 31.


After that I am keen to discuss alternatives like Crabgrass (developed  
by riseup.net) and perhaps Ning (as a commercial in-between stage for  
the addicts), and many other applications and platforms that are out  

For me social networking is a cultural logic, a skill (for certain  
times)--and a menace (in this time and age).

It is going to be a good thing that social networking sites will  
evolve from large corporate platforms to flexible, scalable tools.

Greetings, Geert
