/Message: Better Social Plumbing For The Social Web
The above linked post is a good description of where the web is going. It contains great graphics, interesting discussion, and an excellent overview of the history of social connections on the web.
By the way, I got this from a link on Twitter, I follow many people and one of those I trust, posted the above link. I thought you would benefit from the discussion. Plus, it is a great follow up to the authenticity vs. safety discussions I’ve posted recently.
