Sassa Leaving Friendster

i got a few reporter calls yesterday on scott sassa leaving friendster. the general theme was ‘doesnt this show that social networking didnt make it?’.  my response – no, overall the service category continues to grow faster than blogging. the big winners like the facebook have been small startups and not big players (yahoo or msn).  also, we’ve seen that this is about community and real communities will deliver more meaningful value than virtual. i look forward to seeing how many foot-in-mouth quotes i made on this one:)
