If Facebook ever did go the paid route, I would ditch it instantly. It’s not worth it to me, I already pay for this journal and other avenues of expression… what does this say about the “value” of my social network? I think what it tells me is that the network is at any given time just a commodity – one that I can rebuild and reform anywhere. It’s great when I have it up and running somewhere, and there’s a new and/or interesting application I can use with it, but ultimately all that matters is that I have my network and nobody can ever take it away from me. My network is internal to me at all times.
Going to bed now. Still buzzed from pork overload.
