    The day wordpress develops an arm to their business that is similar to facebook will be a good day for choice in the social networking arena. I like blogging with wordpress but are still forced to use fb as that is all there is… sounds similar to the days when the telegraph was first invented people did not have choice of provider but that slowly changed. Could wordpress be a sleeping giant??

    @WordpressHut99 Yep, it’s a great platform. It’s not robust enough for all website needs, but for most it’s a great too.

    Excellent quick overview of WordPress. I’ve been developing websites for small businesses for several years. Now I only develop client’s sites in WordPress.
