OK, this is just between me and YouTube, so don’t get your brain all a Twitter. I would appreciate if you would Focus and not let your mind Flickr. Since you are a close Friendster of mine, I don’t mind saying I need your Yelp.
Here’s what I wanted to amplify: It’s A Small World, but there are just too many social media and bookmarking sites. I don’t know which ones are Delicious and which are just Deviant Art. I want to feel LinkedIn to my new online contacts unless you think that is not Posterous.
I think it was Ning, the first Chinese emperor who said to his Official Blogger, “You don’t have to be a Geni to realize, there are too many social networks! So many, in fact, I get a Buzz just thinking about them.”
I wish I could wave a magic wand and say “Plaxo, Orkut, Bebo” and make them all disappear. I know they won’t all stay around forever. Some will fall and some will Ryhze. If that happened, I would be the Last.fm to know.
