It will be interesting to see if the Vivaty interfaces and nesting  
within Facebook are maintained by MS XBox.  The integration of social  
network with a virtual world system seemed quite promising although it  
never caught on given the synchronous presence required of the virtual  
world and the asynchrnous burstiness of social network wall posts.

Creativity there and in enabling more user content building could be  
productive.  The ability to keep the posts such as the YouTube links  
persistent was good.  That's one way the world was better than the  
wall posts although similar to the picture folders.
