Post-social? Zuckerberg's talk as a post-mortem?

Silicon Valley's investors have soured on social as an area worth investing in.

The discussion of Facebook felt more like a post-mortem, a search for lessons learned, than a look ahead.

Facebook is happy because it decreases the chances of a competitor emerging.

"Whew, no competitor will beat us at our own game...so death by a thousand cuts, it is!"

It reduces one risk.

Now Facebook sinks or swims on its own talent, not someone else supplanting it.
