The future of Facebook…

Credited for creating the world wide web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, has warned that social networking giant, Facebook, is becoming a “closed silo of content”. He believes that the information Facebook generates is becoming trapped, as it is only available within the “walls” of Facebook itself, which contradicts the founding principles on which the world wide web was built.

Do you believe that Facebook is trying to take over the world, or is it in the process of creating another platform which runs parallel with the world wide web?
