my friend asked me how long do i think facebook will be this dominant for?

And i said...i'm really not sure, because I can't really rely on any precedent to help me come up with some sort of answer. Social networking sites have NEVER been as big as they are now....and there are more adults and teens joining everyday. But like any fad, product..it has to die down eventually. But why? Will people eventually stop caring about social networking? I doubt it. A society in which we don't want to be the center of attention anymore, and a society where we don't care what everyone's doing.

in my opinion, the only thing that would ruin facebook is.......something else. something that isn't out there that will comprise all the aspects of faceboook but better somehow. time travel.

So how much longer will facebook rule our lives? and why? bonus points

I really don't see Facebook ending soon, unless there's a government run social networking system that everyone in the country has, made at birth.
Of course, myspace died, but I see Facebook lasting a lot longer.

If I had been asked this question 5 years ago, I would not have predicted that facebook would still be at the level that it's at today. I think it's bigger now than it's ever been. I don't even know how to guess. But I agree with the post before mine, saying that the only thing that could cause Facebook to wane would be a better social network.

I don't see it ending any time soon, but a big reason why Facebook's so popular is because it's simple and easy to use. They keep on piling more and more things on users the same way Myspace did, and FB's reign will start to decline.

I'd say it'll be around for 5+ years, since it just keeps evolving itself. Sure, it takes a little while to get used to the new changes, but they introduce things slowly and often instead of just have one huge change. Not saying that I necessarily like all of the changes Facebook makes, but I get used to them and they don't bother me enough to the point that I want to stop using the site.

I think it's losing popularity but it'll still last for several more years. Until another social network takes its place.

It's definitely more than 5 years...but it's not something you can set a date on since it set a social networking precedent like Microsoft has with computers.

I voted 2-3 years, only because I feel like someone is gonna create a simpler more efficient version that everyone is gonna jump to. Tumblr has also been really taking off lately for one. Facebook has so much competition as compared to Myspace who basically monopolized social networking.

I honestly think Google will always be the number one search engine. Who knows, Facebook could end up being the google of social media, eventually buying out other social media sites. Like what Google did with Youtube.
