No.

Just wanted to say that. :p

Lol. Well, I thought the article was interesting beyond the largely rhetorical title question ;).

The article is ironic with the movie, The Social Network, where several times the character Mark Z says, "we don't know what this is yet" ... appears he still doesn't. It's a monster with a life of it's own and I suspect Z to be chasing his own tail for quite a while minimizing the riff raff - may be an impossible task reconciling free expression with global usage with judgement.

Pretty sure he knows exactly what Facebbok really is: a way to make money.
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasūrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

If that's all it is, then no need for all this fuss

Well there will be fuss, because it's never "just" that.  But realistically, if it failed to meat that primary objective, it would certainly no longer exist.  So, in some way, no matter what "else" it is, it needs to fulfil that primary criterion before anything else.

I guess we are left to ask then, what is Facebook's ancillary function?  That then, is open to a lot more interpretation.
