WebProNews attended a recent Social Media Club gathering in Louisville, KY. Among the speakers at this event was the famous Chris Brogan, who talked about (among other things) Friendfeed, and why your social media profiles have value. Do you agree with the things Brogan says in the following clip? Share you thoughts.

Brogan discusses services like Facebook Connect, and Google Friend Connect (which he refers to as "Big Brother Connect"). He also touches on OpenID and OAuth.

"There’s gold in your profile. That’s why all these accounts want to keep you on their site and all that," he says.

In the above clip, Brogan talks about how better technology and code doesn’t always win out in social media. He then mentions a few failed services that became overshadowed by Twitter.
