Prepare for an inbox flooded with blank quotes.

Where is the "I don't know" option?

#5 Posted by laserbolts (5314 posts) -

Probably so I'll go with B. Inb4 people proudly say they don't use Facebook which happens alot.

I think Facebook could be here to stay simply because you see its logo in almost every single website you go to. MySpace never had that kind of foothold on social networking. There are obviously many other reasons for this, but the logo exposure is the one that sticks out in my mind.

I suppose. Since I moved back to the country I was born in, Facebook is my only contact with some of my old friends who are now spread out to all corners of the world.

I like being able to see what they're up to without having to go through all the "normal" ways of finding out...

#8 Posted by Coafi (1481 posts) -

I think Facebook is starting to slip, and some people are noticing. Those people are migrating to Twitter, etc. I'm starting to hate what it is becoming.

I'll be using GiantBomb as my sole source of "social networking"

#10 Posted by GunstarRed (5047 posts) -

I'm hoping to get status updates sent directly to my brain, even if I'm in bed asleep. I NEED to know everything about everyone at all possible times.

Let me go hop in my DeLorean, I'll be back in half an hour with the answer.

#12 Posted by SexyToad (2760 posts) -

My Facebook got locked.

@SexyToad: For being too sexy?

#14 Posted by Dad_Is_A_Zombie (1225 posts) -

Shit, I have very little use for it now.

#15 Posted by Ben_H (3321 posts) -

Maybe. I actually started using it recently for chat. I was actually about to get rid but then I started talking to people from work on it.

#16 Posted by StarvingGamer (8041 posts) -

I only use Facebook for Rock Band Blitz so no.

#17 Posted by shootermcclay (219 posts) -

I've been using it for over 7 years, since my freshman year of college. I don't see that changing in the next 10 years.

#18 Posted by mlarrabee (2889 posts) -

Facebook will be the new MySpace in eighteen months. All of those little "like" buttons will be as out of place as the "digg" buttons.

#19 Posted by awesomeusername (4154 posts) -

I have an account but I don't even log in. I want to delete it but my girlfriend complains for me not too. I don't know why and I don't really care anyways.

#20 Posted by NlGHTCRAWLER (1215 posts) -

Of course. Facebook is the replacement for High School reunions.

#21 Posted by PenguinDust (12455 posts) -

Yes, along with AOL and Netscape Navigator.

#22 Posted by PillClinton (3290 posts) -

Never really "got" Facebook and still haven't signed up. I imagine I never will at this point.

#23 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

i don't use facebook. i just found it not being good. i don't like social networks too much.

i don't see facebook being here for another 10 years. there's going to be something better coming out sooner or later.

#24 Posted by NTM (7288 posts) -

I certainly don't use Facebook for it's social aspect, well, as in, I don't talk to anyone I know in person, although one person from my past has added me as a friend, when I don't think he even knew who I was since I didn't even have my real name. I do it for free stuff, and mostly all for games. So I'll comment on a game developers page, or even for films. I just 'liked' my dental place so I can get a free five dollar Starbucks card. I don't like the idea of using it to reach out to old friends, I'm not interested in that. As for the question of if I'm still using it, that all depends. It may or may not be a reliable thing to go to anymore. It may turn into Myspace.

#25 Posted by Twisted_Scot (1175 posts) -

No, I'll be using a combination of codes submitted though various wanted Ads and carrier pigeons.

#26 Posted by Hizang (8533 posts) -

Remember Myspace guys, it was like the most popular thing around. But then Facebook came around and people were being made fun of for having a Myspace page.

The same will happen to Facebook.

#27 Posted by Sanity (1896 posts) -

I hardly use it as it is but people like to socialize so i think its there for the long haul unless something crazy comes out and everyone migrates over to something else.

#28 Posted by cnlmullen (900 posts) -

I think Facebook will be around and will be used 10 years from now.

Personally, I don't think I'll be using it that much, however. I haven't really been using it that much since I graduated college.

#29 Posted by aznjon12 (188 posts) -

Facebook is here to stay, they made a goddamn movie about it. Now I'm just waiting for a video game based on the movie.

#30 Posted by dungbootle (2457 posts) -

I'm honestly surprised, I thought facebook would have lost some steam a year or two ago, but it's still going strong.

#31 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7056 posts) -

Facebook will probably follow MySpace and be replaced by the next social network sooner rather than later. I barely use it now so when that happens I most certainly won't.

#32 Posted by Th3_James (2576 posts) -

I don't think it will be around in 10 years.

#33 Posted by Jrinswand (1696 posts) -

Even if it was around in the next ten years, I definitely wouldn't be using it by that point. I get really freaked out by the idea of the last seven years of my life (since I was 18) being archived on the internet. I'll eventually close down my Facebook for good.

#34 Posted by JJOR64 (18916 posts) -

I rarely use it now. Probably not in 10 years.

I made fun of people for having a Myspace page waaaaaaaaaaaay before Facebook.

maybe, if it sticks around. if something else replaces it, well that's fine too.

#37 Posted by ReyGitano (2467 posts) -

God I hope not.

That really doesn't mean anything. Kodak went under because hardly anyone ever buys actual film anymore. They went from being the kings of an industry to a bit player because no one needed the one thing that they were really good at. There's always the possibility that Facebook could be overtaken by something else some day. If the company as a whole can adapt as market changes occur, they'll stick around, but otherwise, they could just end up like Kodak.

Won't be using Facebook in a year, it's losing popularity pretty fast and more niche sites are growing. I only ever use it for communication mostly nowadays so I'm cool with it dying. I actually wish Google + caught on cause I've been investing in the Google ecosystem and would have loved to have all my contacts working through it.

#40 Posted by Demoskinos (14596 posts) -

I don't even know if I'll be alive in 10 years so... uh... Facebook is the least of my concerns.

#41 Posted by shadows_kill (3165 posts) -

Probably. I can see a future where maybe some other company takes over the market but I don't believe twitter is that company/ website. However, I can also see Facebook being used for a long time from now.. so we will see!

#42 Posted by Hamst3r (4462 posts) -

Probably. It's a good outlet for all of my random crap.

#43 Posted by Trace17 (10 posts) -

I haven't used it in over two years so...no.

#44 Posted by Arkasai (701 posts) -

I was rather surprised to be in the majority this time, last time I voted on one of these most people were full time facebook users. For some reason social media hooks have never found their way into me, which I always found odd given how popular facebook and twitter are. I have a facebook account that was made for me that hasn't been touched in at least four years, I find it a little amusing my high school friends still bother to stop by the page every year because facebook reminded them of my birthday.

#45 Posted by BleedingStarX (279 posts) -

I have a Facebook but I never use it, I have my Twitter linked so it posts my stuff automatically so I have no need to ever go on there

#46 Posted by Danteveli (1165 posts) -

The same way people use myspace now.

#47 Posted by Bell_End (1208 posts) -

im way to cool for facebook and i LOVE to tell people how i do not use it and how i think its rubbish

#48 Posted by Brandino (247 posts) -

I don't even know if i will be alive in 10 years so i don't know.

I love FB so unless something better comes along i will continue to use it.

#49 Posted by astrotriforce (1326 posts) -

I love how everyone hates on Facebook, and yet everyone is always checking it every single day and often times for hours everyday.

Weird how people do that. But people like to criticize loudly in public.

As for me, I'm still proud of the fact that I've never installed any apps outside one or two. I have enough legit games I need to play, and I feel like any sort of online game is just a waste of time. Although I did start playing Words With Friends and I can see how fun it is to play with friends and why people do it.

I think Facebook is here to stay, and ten year's from now you'll be asking the same question and everyone will be hating on it again. But then they'll check it on the their phone while driving and using it to chat with their girlfriend/wife while at work.

I deleted my account two years ago and I haven't seen a need to recreate it since.
