Is Facebook the new Internet?

Posted on April 22, 2010


Here’s a great post from Mark Cuban’s Blog Maverick dated today.

“A question for you. When was the last time you surfed the net ? Can you remember when you just clicked around looking to discover new sites or a site to occupy your time ? Now ask yourself when was the last time you sat on your couch or laid in bed clicking the remote looking for something to watch on TV. Finally, how long do you regularly spend on Facebook ? How much time do you spend checking out your Wall, your friends’ Wall and hopping from profile to profile checking people out ?If you are like most, you kill more time hopping around on Facebook than you do exploring the Net.

IMHO, while good old TV remains the ultimate, passive cure for boredom at home, Facebook is now where we kill time at work, on our mobile devices or while at home with the TV on.

Everything that the net was 5 or more years ago, Facebook is today.”
