IBM > Facebook??? Srsly?

Well, FastCompany's writer Drew Neisser thinks so in this article.  Shrug.  It's possible.

IBM does have a much better grip on capitalism than Facebook seems to.  Aside from their penchant for purchasing smaller companies and running their products into the ground, IBM has an undeniable market force -- economic clout hard to match.

Frankly, I'd really like to see IBM succeed at making social software a must-have for organizations and it can't do that until social software is profitable.  I like that FB is free, but if I owned a company, I would want something with more security, more controls, more ability to capture\reuse knowledge.  And it'd be worth my while to pay something for it.
