FaceBook's or Wesabe's likes?

Colin has been extensively talking aboutthe impact of social networks like FaceBook on the banking system http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=facebook+site%3Athebankwatch.com.

FaceBook's declared intention is to map realactual reslationship between individuals, so that should make it a good platform for financial exchanges. I'm for one is quite dubious on the relative value add of FaceBook and wonder if this will not fade with time (remember of MySpace).

I don't know if finance the social network way will not happen in fact at dedicated sites (think Wesabe here).

My two cents, with no interest rates attached.
