Facebook redesign cashes in on Twitter

The Facebook redesign, to be implemented shortly, is seen by many as a way for FB to fight the recent wave of publicity and success enjoyed by social media rival Twitter. But it may be equally true that it’s simply a better way for Facebook to make cash from sponsors. Apparently, Twitter is also considering this kind of ‘lifestreaming’ advertising model. Are we on the cusp of a new form of social network advertising? Will it be more or less invasive than existing revenue-generating models? Will sites such as Facebook and Twitter continue to put users first? And how much will prove too much and drive us all into the hands of the next internet phenomenon? There’s a fuller explanation of how this all works over at Valleywag.
