24 NovSocial — The next big thing is little.
Facebook and the major social networks are too general and crowded. It’s time for the uprising of the niche social web. Expect pockets of sites for various niche communities that will be separate, but tied together by your participation in them– your identity, which is distributed.
This will allow us to break out of a crowded and cluttered social web and make more deliberate choices about which communities get the bulk of our time and energy. It’ll be driven likely by increasing user frustration at social behemoths, like Facebook, for their frequent privacy issues and the inherent disdain of an online monopoly on our friend connections and identity.
The next big thing is little.
What are your thoughts about the next step in the evolution of the social web?
