    These new extensions will take a long time to catch on, if they do at all.  The average non-web savvy consumer is familiar with .com, .net, .org, .gov, .edu and they are confused by a site that does not have these endings.  Overstock.com abandoned their plans to rebrand as O.co because consumers did not realize this was a web address (and instead were typing O.com).  Del.ico.us rebranded as Delicious.com.  Bit.ly now redirects to Bitly.com.

    If you tell a user to visit name.facebook I bet that the vast majority will instead type in name.facebook.com because they do not see .facebook as a web address.  It will take a lot of effort and money to condition them otherwise, and there’s not much benefit over just using subdomains (unless they are able to score a shorter extension like .fb).

    Totally agree with Linda. Often users don’t get your email adress right if you use a .co domain as they type .com instead.
    However, I noticed a new social network the other day ‘Chime.in’ which I found sounded catchy. I guess with some imagination there are options to score with a gTLD – provided you have the cash to get started.
