Facebook, is it dying?

Thomas Baekdal: “There is one question that I hear all the time. Is Facebook going to last, or is it just a fad? My answer is always the same. If you are trying to find an excuse for not doing “social,” then Facebook is here to stay. But, if you ask “is Facebook going to last?” Then the answer is no; it’s already dying.”

For a lot of us Facebook dying would mean bupkis. It’s just another in a long line of social networking sites. We had BBS’es, then CompuServ, then AOL, then Xanga, then MySpace, and now we have Facebook. Here’s the thing, if you have a weblog, you have your social connector. This space is the center of my social network.

Regardless, Facebook won’t be dying any time soon. They seem to have captured the hearts and minds of the internet masses.

Social is here to stay. And FB won’t die anytime soon with how many people are invested in it. But with their recurring privacy issues I hear of big names in tech jumping ship more frequently these days.

Phil, a lot of folks are upset about the privacy changes, but I keep seeing “Like” buttons on sites. They’ve become like a virus, spreading into the web, and people are volunteering for it. 🙂
