It’s been rumored that “Facebook’s Gmail Killer, Project Titan, Is Coming On Monday.” Does the world really need another mega-email client?
I’m all for competition and ongoing improvements, but I’m not crazy about using an email system that’s entirely integrated with one social platform. As much as I like using Facebook, there have been times when the system has changed and things as simple as not allowing some great tab-based applications to show up on my profile has become an unexpected irritant.
As we become more reliant on one platform to meet all of our needs, we become that much less empowered to have control over the decisions that are made on our behalf. I’m sure the internet will be all a buzz on Monday once the big announcement becomes public.
