Richard MacManus asks an interesting question about Pageflakes and Netvibes: what chance do they have?
Facebook is becoming the home page for many of us. Why? Because our friends are a lot more interesting than anything over on Yahoo News or TechMeme or other places. And because Facebook has become the fastest-moving application platform around. Every day someone sends me another application (or four, like showed up today without me asking for them — I didn’t add them cause I don’t add stuff that’s obviously aimed at a younger demographic, but, still, they are there, and SOMEONE is using them, otherwise I wouldn’t get them sent to me).
How would I deal with Facebook? Make Facebook a container on one of these. Just like Facebook made everything else in my life (Upcoming, Flickr, Google Reader, WordPress, etc etc etc) a container on Facebook.
What do you think? If you ran Pageflakes or Netvibes (or one of the other well known “home pages”) what would you do?
