Zuckerberg's Law

Speaking at a conference last week Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg had this to say:

"I would expect that next year, people will share twice as much information as they share this year, and next year, they will be sharing twice as much as they did the year before.

That means that people are using Facebook, and the applications and the ecosystem, more and more."

New York Times columnist Saul Hansell has dubbed this Zuckerberg's Law.

My question is will this doubling of information sharing continue infinitely?

Surely tough economic times will see people being a little more selective with what they post to Facebook to make themselves seem more serious and hence more employable.

But then again maybe not.
