Annika Lidne: The walled garden approach won't work for Facebook

Posted by Lotta Holmstrom

Facebook Garage Stockholm

Annika Lidne compares Facebook to AOL, the walled garden approach.
– The walled garden didn’t work for them, and it won’t work for Facebook either. It’s a mindset that says ”we’re not really interested in our users”.
She also critisizes the lack of data portability, that you cannot extract your information from Facebook.
– I am not going to log into a bloody site three times a day to view something. It’s not built for being more than a FunWall.
There was a good discussion in the backchannel. Many people brought up the Events as one of the good points of Facebook. On top of that, I think status updates and the fact that your non-early adopter friends are there is what keeps me returning.

Myspace: We've been pioneering the monetization of social networking

Posted by Lotta Holmstrom

Facebook Garage Stockholm

Jonas Nyvang from MySpace talked a bit about MySpace apps and Open Social.
– We give 100% of the revenues you can get from the app you develop. We’ve been pioneering the monetization of social networking.
Like when Arna and I met him in september last year, he doesn’t want to see Facebook as a threat. He makes this distinction between MySpace and Facebook.
– Facebook is more about the social graph, while MySpace is more about your interests, what you strive for and your passions.
His/MySpace’s view of how the web is evolving isn’t new. It is becoming more personal, more portable and more collaborative.

At Facebook Garage Stockholm

Facebook Garage Stockholm

The usual crowd has shown up for Facebook Garage Stockholm, the third event organized by Nustart in Stockholm. The focus is on Facebook, but also social networking sites in general and their development. The first speaker is from MySpace, for instance.
– This is an audience-generated event, says moderator Beata Wickbom.
That’s what sets these Nustart events apart. Things like backchannels have become an integral part of the events.
