The future of the internet can’t be mobile because mobile users don’t participate much. […] They will take the time to type out their own carefully planned ‘off the cuff’ tweet. They will even respond to someone else’s tweet now and then. But mostly, the action on the internet involves typing and they can’t do much of it because it is such a chore. They read emails, but barely write them. […] It’s really bad for Facebook because they are a user generated content business. The mobile user can make a little status update comment and post pictures from their phone, but the bread and butter of Facebook, the real draw, the real reason to use it WAS interaction and mobile is killing interaction. Consequently, Facebook is now mostly just an echo chamber. The desktop users and that rare, intrepid, super monkey thumbed mobile speed typist are ‘doing all the work’ while most of the mobile users just can’t handle doing anything and so mostly just sit back and watch. […] There will be lots of eyeballs on mobile devices, but that’s not the same thing as mobile being ‘the future.’ And any breakthrough that helps make mobile more useable is probably going to make the desktop experience even more awesome.
