Brian Mathews thinks it's a waste of time to create a library profile on Facebook. You may recall Brian had the neat presentation called Intuitive Revelations: The Ubiquitous Reference Model, in which he created a library identiy in LiveJournal. In that project he concluded that it seemed to work a lot better when he showed up as himself rather than as his library incarnate, but now he's going further, suggesting that because Facebook is likely to be a fleeting phenomenon (Facebook specifically, but not the idea of social networks), you really shouldn't put all your eggs in their basket. And as if to back Brian up, Stephen Abram offers this list of other MySpaces.
