Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg tells us, via an interview with a Frankfurt newspaper, that they are currently experimenting with a number of models and expect to have worked out their optimal way to monetize within three years.
I agree with his premise that the model for social networks is different to the Google ad-based revenue model – people visit socnets to hang out, not to click through. I also agree that experimentation is good, but will it seriously take them three years?
Perhaps something got lost in the translation from Zuckerspeak to German to English.
