Sunday links, first go

Bronte Media: Twitter and Friendster Parallels. "One eye-roller of Internet assumptions for me is that 'social networks are transient'. That they are in some way faddish, which is a complete load of shit. What does kill companies, is poor service. One of the most basic tenets of a web service is being up. Friendster's US market success was killed by its inability to stay up. Not because of MySpace's innovation, not because people change social networks like underwear and not because of any other reason. Quite simply, people couldn't login to the service and so were forced to go someplace else to express themselves."

Bronte Media: Feature vs Company. "The folks who ask this question display zero recognition that their current framework would have prevented them from investing in Google at any stage along the way. And so if you are an entrepreneur having to hear the question, you can smile at the irony."

Martin Jönsson: Sakta växer en ny communityjätte fram. "Familjeliv, Bröllopstorget, Djungeltrumman, Odla, Myblock - och så nu juvelen i kronan, sportsajten Svenska Fans. Så ser Stampens sociala medieimperium ut i och med dagens förvärv. Det är en ganska imponerande samling mötesplatser, med ett totalt besökartal på mer än 600 000. Därmed står Stampens inköpta communities snart för dubbelt så mycket trafik som modersajten gp.se."

Resumé: Spray och Passagen går ihop. "Allers Förlag och Eniro slår sina påsar ihop och bildar ett nytt bolag av webbportalerna Passagen och Spray. Samtidigt köper man in sig i den finska portalen Suomi24."
