Plaxo – let’s break into Facebook, use Scoble to do it and not say a thing…
This whole Scoble thing is incredible, but maybe the following from the Plaxo blog gives us some insight into at least why ONE of the guilty parties wants to get into Facebook:
At Plaxo, we believe strongly that users should have ownership, control, and portability of their profiles and friends list. No service you use should claim your data as their own and keep it trapped in their "walled garden". We will continue to publish tools and articles here and on our blog to empower users and support a truly open social web.
But why the HELL would Scoble sacrifice his own reputation and Facebook account, let’s not forget, he has 5000 friends didn’t you know 😉 for someone else? He HAS to be cooking something up with Plaxo. Or at least he was.
What makes this whole thing even more interesting is that the bbc report today that 2008 will be the year of cyber-theft on Social Networks.
So what do you NOT do if you are a growing social network? Find ways to hack into someone else’s social network.
So what do you ABSOLUTELY NOT DO if you are a growing social network? Find ways to hack into someone else’s social network, and not say anything.
In fact, the more I think about what Plaxo have done. the more angry I get.
