Said Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer:
I think these things [social networks] are going to have some legs, and yet thereâ€™s a faddishness, a faddish nature about anything that basically appeals to younger people. There canâ€™t be any more deep technology in Facebook than what dozens of people could write in a couple of years. Thatâ€™s for sure.
I’ve never really been a big fan of social networking. I must have had the worst profile on Orkut; my closest friends — in a show of strength — blackmailed me into accepting their friend requests. A few days later, I had my revenge when I happily deleted my Orkut profile. But I’ve seen first-hand the fanaticism people have towards Orkut though I’ve never understood why.
But Facebook expecting a valuation of $15 billion on [expected] revenues of $150 million, that’s financial optimism at its peak.
Next, can someone tell me how I can delete the profile/account that I had created on a job site many many many years ago? And what do you think of this incentive for a job change?
