I just ran across an interesting article on Gizmodo that cited John Naughton at the Guardian's story about dominating e-giants eventually out living their dominance and becoming irrelevant in the market.  I thought both were fascinating articles.

It always teases the back of my imagination.  I agree with Mr. Naughton that eventually a giant like Facebook could easily fall due to it's privacy balancing act swinging too far towards the favor of shareholders and advertisers.  At the same time, I seems like at least once a week I see a Google+, or Path, or new MySpace, or other social network pop up that promises privacy and social media reinvented.  I do not seeing any service that is currently live making a noticeable dent in Facebook membership (cough, Google+), but it doesn't mean that it couldn't happen.  Simply look at what happened with Kodak and the introduction of the digital camera.
