Can You See the Growth of Facebook too?

I noticed my first post from WAY BACK in December- Facebookhad about 350 million users.

They recently celebrated 500 million users! This was news! Zuckerberg did a prime time interview to celebrate.
Recent articles, such as those suggested below, are taking nibbles at the social media giant suggesting that it is not sustainable growth. Perhaps they have reached their saturation point? 

A recent Washington Post article looked at Zuckerberg's leadership style and identified believing in the vision as something worth emulating. Even when the young CEO had the opportunity to sell the company, he stuck with it. That willingness is seeing unbelievable growth.

The original point was how did they get there and more importantly, how do we plan our own growth? Whether you are talking personal, professional, business or otherwise, if you are lucky enough to have good, positive growth are you prepared to adapt to it?

It would appear that even if Facebook never reaches a billion, it is adapting well and will be able to weather much of what comes down the pike. Are you just as ready for the followers, the users, the cash influx, the education necessary?

Slow Death or Rebirth for Myspace?

  Are we really watching the slow inevitable death of Myspace? With the integration with Facebook complete and  the push towards what appears to be a mobile only function , isn't it time to call this one? One report says that Myspace is making $200 million less this year. They are functionally giving up on Myspace Music , which was always their bread and butter. Without the music tie in, why would people BOTHER with Myspace? I'm talking about it because my wife's band has used every medium known to mankind to promote themselves online and Myspace has been nothing but dead weight from the very beginning. Only bands and their most ardent fans go there. The rest are on Facebook.  There is talk of selling Myspace, but who in their right mind would consider it? This will have some interesting implications for bands down the road. Many use Myspace as their de facto website, just pushing their domain name onto the customizable site. Now apparently, Reverbnation , a North Carolin

New Life

  It's weird, sad and slightly freeing. I've been headed towards a completely different life for a lot longer than I even knew. It took me a while to catch up to realize it was happening.  Thankfully, I was cognizant enough to see it finally and mostly ready for it. It's amazing when you have the rug completely pulled out from underneath you. The adjustments are jarring.  I made mistakes, but like most I learned from them, adapted, and tried my best to do better. The reason you see that truck next to a storage place? That's the sum of my life right now.  Never take for granted that you will work hard for something or someone, and it will end up meaning very little. You are guaranteed nothing, owed nothing, promised nothing. Anything and everything can be taken away in a heartbeat.  I wrote this to my kids a while back: I tried to be the best father I could be based on what I knew when I knew it and how I could. One of the lessons for your life needs to be: you need to b
