Facebook announces new open membership policy - Minnesota Daily

Kids tell me over and over that they think facebook is safer becasue the other users have to be a member of a school or invited by one who is. The one thing that makes facebook special is their "red-rope" appeal. The students in private schools and catholic schools feel more elite. And many are intrigued by Mark's start at Harvard. If they are really seeing to open the site to everyone with an authenticated e-mail address, I suspect they will lose more users than they will gain. Dads like the one in this article might sign up, but I doubt he will use it as often as Ryan would. I once again suggest that Mark listen to his users. They are his customers and if they are unhappy, can find a new place to "shop."Facebook announces new open membership policy - Minnesota Daily
