Mark Zuckerberg talks about Facebook at Future of Web Apps Expo. I dont use facebook very much. I started my account in 2006 because I was speaking at a Fusion student event and this was the way they were communicating with each other. As soon as I joined, my email box was inundated with trivia about who was saying what to someone else and I found it all quite invasive and time-wasting. Then some decent games came along and I was a bit more positive about Facebook, but not enough to spend hours inside it. Now, my facebook account is updated daily by my twitter and there is still a fair amount of internal email that I need to read. I have over a hundred groups that people think I should join and an army of faces and names I dont recognise who want to be my friends. But still, its an amazing platform and an amazing story.
