I'm not sure the problem he describes is limited to things like Facebook. I wonder how many open communities of any kind can survive this in the long term, and what the qualities that allow survival are.

Interesting that you frame it that way. Now that I think of it, the several documentaries I've seen and articles I've read about communes and their residents articulate something close to this: the group dynamics change, personalities clash, key people leave and the entire thing collapses.
