Quote of the week

When you are tweaking a social network, even one as big and successful as Facebook, you don’t want to scare off too many people at one time — or you could create a cascading exodus that is difficult to stop.”
— Steve Henn, reporter, writing at National Public Radio’s All Tech Considered blog
