Business Consulting For The 21st Century Via A Holistic & Intelligent Approach

Has Facebook jumped the shark?

Consumed => “What If Web And Mobile Apps Are Like TV Shows?” by Fred Wilson on his blog A VC.

=> My value add (i.e., left a comment)…

Perhaps the turnover is a function of size? As they say, the bigger they are, the harder they fall.

Also, maybe the ideal model looks more like Branson’s Virgin than a single massive vertical trying to optimize and synergize everything? Sure, keep the parts working together where and when it makes sense but look to spin them off and let them fend for themselves, etc. Maybe there’s danger in being too focused / optimized?

In other words, sticking with your TV theme, could the Instagram purchase be FB’s jump the shark moment? Things should spin-off Facebook at this point, not be sucked in, maybe?
