So, we are making business to Facebook. The point
is to keep users at
our site, not at some other site.
I thought the point was "to empower and engage people around the world to
collect and develop educational content under a free
in the public
domain, and to disseminate it effectively and globally"
I don't see the connection between those two issues.
I don't either.
You quoted WMF's
(and our) general goal, I was talking about how to work on it. Besides
all other things, one of the methods is to keep users at our sites
instead of building tools for commercial (and close source) platforms.
Well, I disagree. I don't see how keeping users "at our sites" as long as
possible is a method to meet that mission. I don't see how having users do
their social networking at wikiwhatever.org
helps people develop educational
content under a free license. Getting users to come to "our sites" in the
first place can be helpful, and creating plugins for sites like Facebook
would do that.
