A Backlash Against Facebook Applications Will Come — This is How.

A Backlash Against Facebook Applications Will Come — This is How.

This came to me from my Twitter link to Scoble’s Link Blog. I’ve been following the Jason Calacanis posts (and he actually “friended” me on Facebook today – after I first “friended” him. It gets confusing.). I can understand how the “A-List” bloggers MUST get sick and tired of all the developers pinging them for facetime on their applications/services – there must be hundreds per day, most worth little time, looking for the one who might start the gold rush.

“For those who follow popular tech bloggers (and I expect most, if not all of you do, if you’re reading this blog), there have been two interesting posts within the last 48 hours few days or so.

One involves Jason Calacanis who has decided to declare Facebook Bankruptcy over how many people are pinging him via Facebook Apps, wherein he’s basically thrown up his hands and has given up. (Boo hoo, I’m too popular). The other involves Mike Arrington’s post over at TechCrunch where he details how there is a burgeoning business in trying to monetize Facebook applications — most noticeably (for me) through selling ad space *on* Facebook applications.”
