1 thought on “Gartner’s prediction on email and social networks: disappointing”

  1. The big barrier to a take-over by social networking is the stovepipe distinctions between the networks; a LinkedIn member can’t communicate with a Facebook member, etc. I still use email more than I want because it’s universal; there are no barriers. (And of course, that’s why there’s spam and other forms of information overload on email.)
    Does Gartner–or anyone else–see signs of an open, multi-homed social network that connects people as universally as email but allows more identity and choice? On the email side, Google Wave has moved in that direction.
