Rather than a threat, why not look at it as an opportunity?

Subject: FaceBook taking over the web, and semantic web

 

Dear all,

Facebook plans to take over the web, by creating open graph based semantic content.

See:
http://blog.newsweek.com/blogs/techtonicshifts/archive/2010/04/22/facebook-f8-internet-open-social-graph-semantic-web-twitter.aspx

FaceBook has come under fire for selling information about users to marketing companies.

Is this a serious threat to the open structure of the Internet and the linked data paradigm as envisioned by the W3C?
