Why Facebook is the New Yahoo

Mike Elgan, Datamation:

But as a driving force, as an influential driver of news and information, Yahoo is out in the woods. Once the darling of Silicon Valley, Yahoo has become this… thing — a service nobody can describe, a kind of machine that acquires companies, then closes them down.

Yahoo has no vision. It has no purpose. It’s dispensable. Yahoo continues like a zombie, animated by the life it once had.

And that’s what Facebook is becoming. Yes, they’ll continue to have users. And yes, they’ll continue to make money. But Facebook is looking increasingly like a one-trick pony that doesn’t have the vision to reinvent itself for the post-Facebook era.

Facebook is the new Yahoo.

An eerie yet very possible prediction.
