The Facebook Platform: The Next Generation OPAC? / Library ?

The Facebook Platform: The Next Generation OPAC? / Library ?

**From A Recent TIME Magazine Interview with Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO of Facebook [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Zuckerberg]

QUOTE

TIME: Why do you describe Facebook as a "social utility" rather than a "social network?"

Zuckerberg: I think there's confusion around what the point of social networks is. A lot of different companies characterized as social networks have different goals - some serve the function of business networking, some are media portals.

What we're trying to do is just make it really efficient for people to communicate, get information and share information.

We always try to emphasize the utility component.
