Thanks for making the Points of Control Map such a rich and engaging resource. It keeps getting better and better because of your input!
We recently launched a new feature on our popular Points of Control, the Map Acquisition Mode. Add your favorite company as a target for acquisition by one of the major players in the network economy, and see who else is being added — and debated — in real time.
Pose your acquisition smackdown by suggesting which takeovers — hostile or friendly — you’d most like to see. Should Apple grab up a social network to make Ping all that it’s promising? Do you still think Google will buy Twitter?
Other map features:
• Territory Mode – click on company icons to view the history and significance of each company.
• Movements – see which directions the major players are headed.
• Comments – make your own observations and suggestions — right on the map. We listen to your feedback and make corrections based on the collective knowledge of this community.
• Vote – support good ideas and voice your opinion about the bad ones.
Get Talking! Bring the conversation to Twitter using the #w2smap hashtag, or post directly to Twitter and Facebook from the map. The Web 2.0 battle rages on, so let’s explore, expand, and explain what your predictions are.
