Simeon Simeonov writes about his article:
We are entering into a period where communities and social networks will be part of everything. No, there wont be many more MySpaces. There really isnt a need for too many huge social networks. Instead, well see verticalization/specializationthe long tail of SNs. And these wont be built from scratch. Theyll be built using Ning, GoingOn, PeopleAggregator and the dozen other social infrastructure platforms that are emerging right now.
I talk about three trends we are likely to see:
* The opening up of social networks
* A battle for the ownership of user data
* The introduction of social economics
