It’s conspiracy theory time. Don’t call this a prediction. Think of it as a hypothetical situation.
The Worst Bomb
Metaphorically, the worst bomb is the one that is a combination of two stable components that only react when mixed. What we are about to discuss is a similar path to the “boom” when two major initiatives fly under the radar and become reality, prompting a crossroad that is predicted in the Bible.
Again, we’re talking in speculation and metaphor. I would never presume to have any knowledge of the future other than what has been foretold in the Bible. We’re just discussing a hypothetical.
The Facebook Announcement
Facebook recently announced that they were expanding the reach of Facebook Credits, forcing all social gaming platforms to conform by July. Those of you who game on Facebook will be required to give your financial information to Facebook in order to buy credits to be used for in-game virtual products. The game developers get some of the money and Facebook gets some. Everyone’s happy.
There’s a problem, here. Today, it’s gaming. Tomorrow, it’s real-life purchases of just about everything that you may (or may not) consider buying online. Facebook eCommerce will become a dominant force that businesses will need in order to tap into the growing segment of people who make purchases online. It won’t just be Google, Facebook, and MySpace with which they’ll be competing. They’ll be going up against Paypal, Ebay, Amazon, Apple – just about all of them. .
In Part II, we’ll discuss the National Internet ID, The Revelation, Convergence of Two Circumstances, Unconscious Motives, and The Conclusion.
It’s somewhat disconcerting that it’s through social gaming that we are lured into the clutches of the beast.
