Coming up tonight on Charlie Rose, Mark Zuckerburg has made comment that “Google is building their own little version of Facebook”. While that was certainly a hit towards Google, Zuckerburg was happy to give props to Amazon and Apple as partners.

Amazon and Apple “are extremely aligned with us,” said Zuckerberg. “We have a lot of conversations with people at both companies just trying to figure out ways that we can do more together, and there is just a lot of reception there.” Meanwhile, “Google, I think, in some ways, is more competitive and certainly is trying to build their own little version of Facebook,” Zuckerberg said.

    Yeah… Google is one of those companies that when they gun for you, you need to take notice. Facebook shouldn't grow too overconfident. Google has a powerful brand name, and the talent to even pass the iPhone in popularity. Plus we've all seen the predominant social networks fall before, look at Myspace. They used to be popular just like Facebook. But with time someone came up usurped their position and now they're a nobody. Zuckerberg shouldn't get too cocky, too large to fail has happened time and time again.

      Wait, they passed the iPhone in "popularity"? When? When does an Android phone announcement get the attention from the world wide media that an iPhone announcement does? When did an Android phone sell like 2 million handsets in 24 hours?

      I'm sure you probably meant Android is more widely used, but that's because it's everywhere and put on phones by everybody. Most people buying it are either buying it cuz they get it for cheap, their carrier is offering a "buy one get one" sale, or because their carrier doesn't offer iPhones. Very few people (generally just the tech-head crowd) actually goes into it saying "I really really want the newest Android phone). Sure, it happens, but a lot less often in the real world than it does among the nerd crowd.

        Well, …Android is more popular than iPhone for sure, but only if you realize that the world is not only US.
