Open enrollment @ Facebook
They’ll let anyone in to Facebook these days.
Once the exclusive online stomping grounds of college students, social networking site Facebook.com is throwing open the doors to rest of the world. The site is slated to announce in coming weeks that anyone can gain access to the site, simply by affiliating themselves with a particular city or region.
I’m not sure I like it. But if i were going to do it, the way I’d do it is the way Google did GMail: parcel out invites (and keep refreshing the parcel) to current members. Especially in light of the recent ruckus.
