I believe discovery is going to be the future of social - learning about new films and music from your tastemaker friends is going to be more and more important

There is a great facebook recommendation engine app called recomendo that is trying to do this

it recommends facebook likes for a user based on their taste and in addition.
you can designate friends as tastemakers in specific categories and that influences what is recommended to you.

"Some 60% teens between the ages of 12 and 17 say they've made their Facebook profiles private." Wow, they've been listening after all.

re: Facebook Treads On Twitter Turf
Personally, I prefer Twitter to Facebook, especially in recent months. With all the advertisements on Facebook -- and a lack of substantive postings from friends and family -- I turn to a very small group of my friends on my private Twitter account that lets me keep up with those who are the closest and most important to me. But I don't know that I would appreciate this feature on Facebook. I think for businesses, though, this is a useful tool.

"Expect Facebook to resemble Twitter more and more in the months ahead."

Well, that's unfortunate.

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
