It’s Facebook day

Everyone I talk to is interested in Facebook. Every week they are adding about a million new users and growing 3.3%.

Mike Arrington of TechCrunch is at a big shindig in San Francisco and will report throughout the afternoon.

Why is Facebook so valueable? Well, I had lunch with a venture capitalist today and he explained to me just how much information and how much time the average Facebook user is putting into the system. It’s going to let Facebook deliver very targeted advertising, he told me. Much more than many more popular sites. Look at Digg, for instance, Can you figure anything out about the users of Digg? No. So, how will you send targeted advertising to them?

Facebook is one of two services (LinkedIn being the other) where my readers beg me to join almost every day. I’m going to give in soon. Oh, and there are lots of other bloggers at the Facebook developer shindig too. TechMeme already is linking to most of them. Anything else that’s cool will be on my link blog.
