The New Oxygen of the Internet

BusinessWeek has a new video program called Digital Dish. Fred Wilson, aka “A VC,” stopped by for a chat, which turned to soc nets and how some of them are bound to falter, if not disappear from the web altogether.

Here’s Wilson’s response to that charge…
“I think that you’re missing one thing, which is that the web itself is becoming social. And the large social networks—whether it be MySpace or Facebook, Bebo, Meebo, Friendster even—will have a second life as providers of this social graph, data, into web services that are built on top of them. Social networking is a piece of every website that’s out there. There will be social networking on BusinessWeek.com, provided through Facebook. Social networking is an infrastructure.”
