AOL buys Bebo

Mark Zuckerberg has been mentioned a few times on this blog. As a genuine Generation Y guy, his stated philosophy is to connect the world, and is using the investments he gets to fund the chunky server farms needed to support the more than 67 million users on Facebook to continue to connect the world. Randy Falco’s comment on the Bebo move, “It’s not just about throwing more content at more people; it’s about new and better ways to connect” reflects the idea that connecting everyone in the world is a good thing. I have to agree, but will the deal, which on paper looks like a good mix of old and new (both in audience profile and application development strategies) bring Yahoo and AOL closer or further apart? The great game of our days continues.

See you at the Breakfast Bites on Tuesday.
