No need to break up faecebook, just require them to use a standard with an open API. Like browsers, email and everything else internet before these people got involved who see it as their life's mission to make their company into the de-facto web starting silo services.

So, a person who chooses to use Diaspora could add in a contact that they know is a Faecebook user, and vice versa and continue to see their updates.
