However much is in your Facebook, it ain't a new Google

There's an ancient adage in the computer industry - it may have originated at Microsoft - which says: 'Always eat your own dog food'. What it means is that if you are writing software other people are going to use, then you must use it yourself.

As it happens, I seem to have signed up just at the moment that Facebook reached its tipping point and switched into a phase of exponential growth.
