    FB rises above its competitors because having higher population is intrinsically better for this product. That acts a huge barrier to entry because few people are going to join a new social network that has only a few of their friends on, not to mention none of the thousands of photos they've already uploaded to FB.

      Completely agreed. That's a big part of why I wrote the post. I think it's really interesting how what is popular is being almost completely driven by users now.
