I certainly think there are a lot of inflated expectations. So a trip through the trough certainly seems in order. ;-)

I must say, I prefer the Chasm, per Geoffrey Moore's "Crossing the Chasm" book, who came up with the technology lifecycle terminology far before Gartner decided to discuss their hype cycle concept.

Although while the hype MAY be dying out, any website with what, 50 million users, can't (to me) help but be beyond the Chasm.

Jon,

It was like a year ago when I created that visual based on the Second Life hype/back lash. HEre we go again.

I have recently suggested that The Opening Up Of Facebook will lead to greater interest in Facebook due to (a) Mark Zuckerberg's announcement that "Facebook wants to make members’ data portable" (b) new tools for making Facebook app development easier and (c) Facebook providing more that just social networking facilities.
