According to Matt Peckham another facebok blogger, a new version of facebook will begin to emerge starting towards the end of October. This new beta version of facebook will merge video games with social media. The new facebook will be available on X box 360 to further its reach of users.
This new version of XBox facebook will not have the full capabilities that the regular computer version does have but it still may prove to be successful. I can’t think of any way that this new facebook will be an improvement on the old; however, with new technology this is usually how people feel before it becomes mainstream. Perhaps this new facebook will be able to connect video game users? It seems like it may just be used to view status updates because of its limited capability. At the end of the day this is just a way that facebook is attempting to further its dominate reach over todays internet culture. I think in theory this is a good idea but it sounds like for the most part this new facebook via 360 will not be too successful.
