Companies providing this networking service must realize then that the only thing they have to fear regarding losing users is their own stupidity. With this in mind, if they were to open up an API to allow other social networking sites to hook into their massive database, then they could offer interoperability as a selling point. These networks do not compete on technical merit, only on size of their audience, as that has a direct effect on more people signing up with their service. True, if they offered interoperability, someone might shop around for a place to host their profile, but then again, most of these people are the same ones who would sign up because their friend gave them a link to the service they were given a link to and so on and so fourth.
This open API would provide unending advantanges for the consumer, and a good number of positives for the service provider. The only ones losing out are the people who enjoy having to cross post across three to seven million different services and people like that probably also like watching paint dry. I have no sympathy for those folks.

Last night was different. I went to a club in Sunnyvale* called The Forum. After I took 30 minutes to find the only major street in the area, I entered the club and proceeded to go stand by the dance floor. First I watched the dancing. . . .Then wouldn't you know it, there was a little foot tapping . . . Then, there is a little shoulder movement and the next thing you know, I'm on the dance floor like a fool dancin with myself. I had no booze, I had no friends around, I had no ladies. I did this for a long time. I still feel weird.
I kind of like dancing, too bad I suck at it, like everything else requiring coordination.
I also have another confession to make . . . I like techno music these days. The club I went to was playing all that rap hiphop stuff, but this is something I think still needed to be said.
*Every time I pass that sign, I think of replacing a v with a d, and we have Buffy.
