More on Facebook: An in-depth column accompanying the interview shines a light on Facebook's "break things and move fast" culture, which leads new and often unpolished products to launch at a dizzying pace. A restaurant review service could be among the products on tap - YELP can't be pleased with that. Long-term, Facebook wants to "record every book, film, and song a person has ever consumed, then build a spectacular model of other things that person could enjoy." Will consumers go along, and if they do, should Google be worried?

    FB would have to create a better service than YELP to make people shift. Nobody wants a crappy service. It won't be possible for FB to create every service possible better than a focused company.

    Well, the real advantage of FB is people, with 1B users, its reviews tend to be more objective and informative than yelp's. Besides, you would trust reviews from your FB friends than someone from nowhere.

    Maybe, but FB got it's billion people by providing an innovative service, which is quite different to muscling in on other peoples' territories, which is all they seem to have to offer at present!
