Facebook is the new AOL

It's amazing how much technology changes over time and, yet, how cyclical things can be. MySpace = GeoCities
Facebook = AOL

If you think about it, most of what AOL offered is now, in some way, a feature on Facebook.

I wonder what the future holds for Facebook. Will they continue to gain popularity? Or will they degrade into a locked down ghetto that everybody hates but deals with because that's all they have?
