[Social Media] Facebook Messages challenges traditional email & portals
3) A real social inbox with friends as the filter. My colleague, Jeremiah Owyang has written about the potential for email providers to become instant social networks ( here and here). But attempts to make email inboxes social will face significant challenges. Without that social data, the billions of social connections lack context.

Just as important is what Facebook Messages does not do.

[Social Media] Groundswell Paperback: A Look Back Three Years Later
To our astonishment, it has sold more than 100,000 books and now a new, updated paperback version is available (links below), with two new chapters on how to use Twitter and social maturity.
