The other day NPR's Planet Money quipped that the gold bubble was going to burst soon, as they'd decided to buy gold. Well, perhaps Facebook is nearing its bursting point...I created a Gene Expression fan page. I don't have a good sense of the great utility of this sort of thing...you can after all find the two GNXP weblogs on the world wide web pretty easily. And I feed the blog posts to twotwitter accounts. I can see the value-add of Facebook's selective semi-permeability when it comes to the "social graph", but less so for websites which have a robust presence on the internet. GNXP in some form has been around for over 8 years. I can't but help feel that this is a flashier Geocities fan page. Also, it has a URL that's easy to remember: http://www.facebook.com/GeneExpression
