Dalton Caldwell to Mark Zuckerberg

Wanted to capture this here as this letter to Mark Zuckerberg is so spot on – particularly this paragraph:

I believe that future social platforms will behave more like infrastructure, and less like media companies. I believe that a number of smaller, interoperable social platforms with a clear, sustainable business models will usurp you. These future companies will be valued at a small fraction of what Facebook and Twitter currently are. I think that is OK. Platforms are judged by the value generated by their ecosystem, not by the value the platforms directly capture.

  1. I think this is the only possible positive future for social network platforms. It's been much bruited that it's about the people, not the technology (or the commercialism). We'll see in due time, of course.

  2. It's a lovely 'port' from the French language to the English language."Bruit" in French means noise and the making of it 😉
