Is the facebook fad over?

I have a facebook account & go on it like once a month maybe not even--do you think this is a fad that has passed?

  • No, it won't die out until something better replaces it. Like what happened to MySpace.

  • I read an article the other day that said people are getting bored with it. I find myself tired of seeing the same certain people posting over and over again.

  • I don't use it that often. Too much drama. It went from people posting everything they were doing to being way more selective.

  • i check mine multiple times a day. makes it easier though that i have a Facebook app on my phone and get my notifications through it.

  • I have a lot of friends and family on there- we use ita s a way to share pictures or keep in touch- or initiate play dates... Like ' Hey, we are heading to the park Saturday morning if anyone wants to join us!' or 'Carl survived Cub Scout Camp we are SO proud!' My page is pretty active with that sort of stuff!

  • I don't know, I still get a million notifications a day. If it is a fad that is passing none of my friends got the memo.

  • I think its losing its appeal.

  • This facebook thing is different for everyone. There are the people that came on it after myspace died, there are people that came in because it was the new thing and then there are people like me that has been on it for YEARS.. since it first came out and it was ONLY for college studens. People like me will never see it as a fad or wait for the next new things. This is simply because we know the purpose of it and continue to use it as it was orginally intended to be used. When it first came out it was about catching up with old friends, networking or just keep relationships with people (work or school relaed) that you dont really communicate with in your everyday world.
