Ok, what users will want is the Social Web. And here is the way to convince people:
"The Social Network Privacy Mess: Why we Need the Social Web"


( This can of course be improved) The general ideas should be clear: 
 dystopia: we cannot have all social data centralised on one server.
 utopia: there is a lot of money to be made in creating the social web, and thereby
    increasing democracy in the world.

 This can ONLY be done with linked data. And there is a real need for it.
