I recall someone saying something similar about Myspace...
Myspace has 34 million.

Every large and small business has a facebook page. It's not going anywhere.

Google Social will be a sure wave, you could say even a Google Wave, of excitement!

Ah.. ha!

Hate to say it, Facebook isn't going anywhere short of self destruction. MySpace was dethroned because MySpace sucked (comparatively). It looked horrible, didn't have the features Facebook became popular for, and did I mention it looked horrible? MySpace was popular among teenagers, whereas Facebook originally started out popular among college students (originally it required a college email) and the more sophisticated crowd.

43.2 million unique users, but what about its peak? There were over 100 million accounts and businesses will move to whatever is popular.

Well their last attempt failed I guess, considering it wasn't even mentioned after 3 pages. Orkut.

Orkut is still popular in foreign countries, namely Brazil.

A good social networking site needs a name that clicks with people. Orkut doesn't. Friendster kind of did, but failed anyway. MySpace was good, but Facebook is perfect. There's a lot of other start-up wannabes out there with horrible "web 2.0" names.

Not to say its name is why Orkut failed, but it sure is a funny one.

Myspace also started giving me friend requests from Internet Explorer. No lol i'm good you ol' browser you!

I'll stick with FB, it's a pretty well rounded service for the most part.

What people need to realise about all these "social networking" sites, is that they are all data mining tools. Your info will be sold to various advertising firms, inlcuding google, so you get targeted ads.

And of course it's generally unsafe to have your info out on the net. Once it's there, it's not going anywhere.
