Tidbit #1 – Facebook: Staying or Going?

People are starting to question the staying power of Facebook. Despite its multi-billion dollar status, many users are expecting a new social network to replace Facebook. The associated Press and CNBC conducted a poll, in which 46% of those who responded to it believe that Facebook use will decline as new social media platforms emerge. Will Facebook face its fall soon? Well, social media is a realm that is ever-changing and ever-growing, and almost always unexpectedly so. Only time will tell.
