Facebook Hits 200 Million Users

Facebook announced that it officially has 200 million users globally. According to comScore MySpace still has more users in the US (though Compete data disagree):

What does it mean for MySpace, which just announced MySpace Local, in partnership with Citysearch. Will both thrive or will FB dominate — one network to rule them all? And if both FB and MySpace manage to thrive, what about other networks? How will they do? Will they need to be organized around demographic groups or specific types of content to be viable?

Of course there’s now a “social layer” in almost all content or commerce sites online today.

FB is still missing out on the local opportunity in my view. Indeed, I articulated a local strategy in a lunch some time ago with Net Jacobsson, who has since apparently left the company.

At MySpace, former Yahoo! exec. Warren Kay is leading the advertising push into Local.
