Why not us?
So I'm just thinking about all the friendster's, myspace, facebook, twitter type websites that are out there. And not to take anything away from the guys that created them, I don't really see them all that difficult to make.
So it got me thinking, with all the talented programmers not just here, but elsewhere, how is it that just a few can create a website that literally goes viral and becomes "THE" talk of the town, at least enough to be the latest trend.
Is it marketing? Is it connections? I'm not sure it's necessarily timing....
When Facebook came out, Friendster and myspace were already out, and yet another social networking site called Facebook comes out, but dethrones friendster and myspace.
Now why is that? Why did someone create the same thing that's already been around yet for whatever reason, it becomes more popular?
Twitter is the FIRST of it's kind in it's service, but is anyone else creating Twitter 2, or Twitter 3? Why does Twitter get to stay on top of the world?
Why did Friendster not stay ontop of the world? Why did when Facebook came out, people say, "Umm, I already have friendster or myspace, I'm not signing up for yet another social networking site..." But indeed people did!
So what if 2 more Twitter services came out? Will people dump Twitter and go to the new one?
I am always boggled my human behavior....I hope this doesn't sound like I'm rambling, just wanna get anyone's thoughts on this kind of stuff...
