here. What’s a good
Facebook vanity URL? We only have a couple days to decide but

think its one of the most important things besides actually building
the sites because if you dont know how effective certain aspects of
your sites are then you dont know what to work on, what are the weak

- 05/05/09 10:32 AM
It was only a matter of time before Facebook really started with SMS. I don't know why there was a perception that somehow only Twitter could have this sort of functionality but really that's short sighted. Of course Facebook can add this and of course they were going to. You might say they were late to the starting block but they certainly showed up for the race. In a way it could be the tortoise and the hair since Facebook has an enourmous lead on Twitter regardless of the Oprah effect.
Anyways Facebook is adding some SMS functions and it looks

people privacy is not only a concern it’s an absolute must.
This is especially
true when it comes to minors on the internet. Privacy matters as well
comes to spam because in this day and age no one likes to give out
because of the inevitable onslaught of spam that ensues afterwards.
the above is most certainly true you must be wondering why on earth
