Isn't your advice for "monetizing facebook" applicable to any social network? Minus the term "social graph", which is just a map of the users and their actions within the network (something all networks have to some degree) and the term "applications" which most would describe as widgets, what is the differentiator? Hype seems to be the only differentiating factor. If Facebook has some method of distilling the data from network activity that is better than the other SNs, perhaps they can leverage the data more efficiently. However, my bet is that Ning is developing something far more sophisticated. Then again, I don't have a vested interest in any case, meh.

Great panel Dave. It's great to hear big thinkers with historical context debate FB monetization and other issues. I hope this conversation continues.

I really wanted to make the event but had to come back down to LA early after the Community Next. Keep the videos coming!
