A.  One company (or website) should not control the world's social interactions.
We need to transition to an open and distributed system.  Some contenders are:

Appleseed

One Social Web (Based on XMPP which I like)
http://www.onesocialweb.com

Friend of a Friend
http://www.foaf-project.org/

Diaspora (incomplete)
