We’ve said this before – it’s always the deleted blog posts that get the most attention. In this case it’s a blog post by Sab Kanaujia, VP of Digital Innovation at NBC Digital Media. On December 26, 2006 he wrote a long post on his blog outlining NBC’s vision for social networking. Sometime After January 9 the post was removed, although a cached version is here (and a copy of the text is below).
NBC is clearly trying to find their direction in the social networking space, and they need to make their move soon. They almost acquired Tribe last year, although the deal eventually fell through, apparently over scaling issues.
