Facebook is not 500 Million People

A popular quote from the Enterpirse 2.0 Conference in Santa Clara was:

“Facebook is not 500 Million People, its 500 Million Networks

This is a very important point to understand.  A network of netowrks helps us discover the strength of weak ties, discussed in this white paper [pdf]  THE STRENGTH OF WEAK TIES: A NETWORK THEORY REVISITED Mark Granovetter.

Amy Shuen, author of “WEB 2.0 A STRATEGY GUIDE” does a great job explaining the value of “Network Effects” in this video.

You can see more of Amy’s videos and my review of her book at “WEB 2.0 A STRATEGY GUIDE“.

You can learn more about Web 2.0 and Business Strategy at the Web 2.0 Summit.
