Comments on: Why is Facebook worth ten Twitters? http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2010/11/18/why-is-facebook-worth-ten-twitters/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: randersontt http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2010/11/18/why-is-facebook-worth-ten-twitters/#comment-384512 Thu, 18 Nov 2010 21:27:53 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=23125#comment-384512 Ultimately, people consume a product or service if they believe it adds value to their life. And ultimately, the purpose of business is to MAKE MONEY!

I predict twitter will ultimately fail on both of these counts. Users will eventually figure out that knowing where Paris Hilton ate lunch doesn’t add value to their lives and advertisers will not be willing to pay much for demographic information on those remaining twits who do care where Paris Hilton ate lunch.

Like so many other web-related services, Twitter is neat from a technological standpoint, but it will eventually be absorbed into some larger organization that actually makes money.
