In what will prove to be a great experiment, Facebook, the social network for university students, is opening up to everyone. Yes, that means you to:
“This includes your friends who graduated pre-Facebook (yes, there was such a time), your friends who don’t have school or work email addresses, and your friends whose schools don’t give out email addresses. Now you can all connect. “
Facebook has received so much press recently (good and bad) that their name, and the buzz about them is well known outside of the college circle.
Opening themselves up will be interesting to watch. While it will still allow students to be in a closed network, the perception of what it is may change, and will still need to be set for everyone who is not a student. Will it simply be the MySpace for adults?
