Facebook: the new data black hole

Oh, my.

I added the WordPress Facebook Application a few days ago. Now my blog, and your comments, are showing up on my Facebook Profile Page. Along with my Twitters. My Flickr photos. My Google Reader items. My Kyte videos. And a bunch of other things.

Jeremiah Owyang is sitting here with me and he’s the one who said it’s a black hole after seeing how Facebook is becoming the new portal for all information you post around the Web. He wrote a post titled “all your widgets are belong to Facebook.”

Other evidence that Facebook is a black hole, sucking stuff into it: They just acquired Parakey, a stealth-mode startup started by Blake Ross and Joe Hewitt, two former Firefox geeks.
