Hi Dave, Intimacy and friendship are easily identified. Personal mobile phone numbers are possibly the single contact channel that we do not publicise. Therefore, I think that new startups like Groupme or Fast Society may be on the right track to capitalise on the power of intimate networks. The ability to tap into mobile phonebooks to add contacts/friends to ad-hoc groups and then faciltitate temporary or private broadcasting channels via the SMS text is something that may be the next big thing. I think that if these guys get this right and can get traction, then facebook's social graph may be displaced by a more intimate network graph. Mobile numbers offer a channel that can easily discriminate between close friendships and acquaintance/familial networks and exclude virtual friendships (that dominate your network on Facebook).
