    lol not sure if srs

    and UI, i think i ran into a similar phone number issue with gmail

    why would a free web-based email service require your phone number? i'd sooner spend the big bucks and make another free account.

    did i mention it's free?

    c. while I don't think that many people are 'moving' to other social networks (LinkedIn sucks), I think services like twitter and foursquare and other 'lesser' networks are doing well.

    d. people are stupid
    a. Yup. A lot of contests are starting to require a like so I imagine a lot are abandoned soon after.

    b. Oh my yes. A lot of my friends are starting to get engaged, married and have kids. Dear god the status updates are annoying. "This is what my husband/fiance did" "This is what my kid did" "This is what the mass of cells in my abdomen did" It's the modern day slide show narrated by a 2 year old.

    d. Yup. Some things will never change.

    FUCK NO.
    Hey, that was my reaction too! It was also the reaction when they asked for multiple different email addresses for the same reason.

    not too surprised - the downfall has already happened to other social sites.

    I am serious. Every bit of information they ask for, I give.

    Edit: And I share it with everyone.

    Ok... I'll take all your financial information, home & mailing addresses, SSN, and the name of your parent's dog.
