    • bd4uandu: I tried for a while full of lib's shouting people down. FB they want too much info just to see what it is. Twitter is ok but don't use much.

    • David Jackson: I wonder whether $GOOG is chipping away at $FB, and will eventually reach a tipping point.

    • jamesingram32: or indeed vice versa? fb can enter search, and mobile search too boot, and start to take mobile homepage presence etc

    • David Jackson: jamesingram32, good point. Who do you think wins?

    • jamesingram32: Hey. capitalism wins! Seriously, they both will. FB is still under-rated and can surprise with social media. e.g. consider it's board

    • jamesingram32: for e.g. the latest has huge experience in pin point mass population medical information. FB could have a future in Public Health
