Does Facebook have a future?

  1. Will Facebook continue growing? Or on the contrary, will it decay? Will people from the future still use Facebook or will they use another social networking?Facebook quit poll There are some people who put in doubt if Facebook will continue growing. Graham Cluley, (a senior technology consultant at Sophos), after analyzing a recent poll that was conducted by Abingdon, U.K.-based Sophos,  confesses on his post that “faults in the privacy settings will lead people to remove themselves from Facebook”.  In this poll they interviewed 1,600 Facebook users in order to know if people will remove away from Facebook due to privacy issues, as it can be seen in the picture. He also adds: “Some people may simply reduce the amount of data that they publish on the site rather than quit”.

Nevertheless, most of the experts agree that Facebook will continue growing and that it will become a very popular tool, more than even Google or MySpace. According to Adam Rifkin, a Silicon Valley veteran who organizes a networking group for entrepreneurial engineers called 106 Miles, Facebook will be bigger in five years than Google is right now”. He wrote on his post that Facebook has already more page views than Google has and people already spend more time on Facebook than in Google, so with “bigger” he refers to the annual revenues. He suggests that  Facebook’s annual revenues could double in 5 years.

John D. Sutter, CNN.com writer/producer, wrote on his post, that “Facebook is trying to turn the web into a big cocktail party” and he also wrote that Alain Chuard, co-founder of Wildfire, a promotions app and website that piggybacks on Facebook’s infrastructure, believes that Facebook will dominate the future web and he maintains that “Facebook it’s going to become the plumbing of the web”.

This is what experts say about it, but we can not certainly know what will happen with Facebook, we will have to wait and see what happens.

    Face is fun, but due to breach of privacy can’t bet about its future, I m sure if not FB some other site would be there for connecting people.
