People On Page: YASNS...
...or Yet Another Social Networking Service. PeopleOnPage
is a browser plug-in co-browsing app, which supports two views of other people in the system: Dating, and World. (Gotta love two-category taxonomies...) And they seem to be following the Liz Lawley dictum -- "Its the faces, stupid!" -- by providing a user-created POPCard with a photo.
Because social networks require a degree of exclusion to work properly, it will be interesting to see how these various services (e.g. Ryze, Friendster, Craigslist, LinkedIn, etc) end up further differentiating themselves from one another.
