"A hosted platform can be a bit of a trap. Often, you do not own the data. Application platforms may not be as open as we'd like but you own the information and it can be exported .You can't say that much about Facebook, which is lacking as a business platform simply because you can't export your own contact information.

....what is the point of a Facebook application environment if the contact information you develop is locked up?"

1/2 page down and I signed up for the ReadWrite Enterprise RSS feed.  Nice articles rc - thanks!!  Having MindTouch, SugarCRM, Salesforce.com and Zoho article links in the same page caught my eye.

Zoho has 2 nice short videos on their products here: http://www.readwriteweb.com/enterprise/2009/11/zoho-makes-another-move-to-be-the-it-of-the-small-business-market.php

As for the Facebook comments I agree.  However, if someone has the wherewithal to create a custom site in the Force.com platform then they should be quite familiar with calling the freely exposed APIs Facebook offers.  You can mash FB, Google, Amazon, and Force.com with similar bi-directional API calls.  But it's a bit counterintuitive to me to offer a free service and promote such openness as FB does while also making you jump through a hoop to get your data back out

I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code.
