I feel like less people are using facebook these days but that's just me.

I remember people were like addicted to it.

Your post and your dick is off topic.

The question is meant to encompass all social media, Facebook being the grand daddy of them all.

When this online bullshit fades, how does it affect the world?

Twitter is bigger right now I think, but I don't think it would have any significant effect.

This "online Bullshit" will NEVER die...it will only grow from here out till we evolve into alien creatures darting from planet to planet

If FB ever goes down it will be because a better site replaces it.

My agenda is to identify two different groups of people

Those who use Facebook and those who do not use it.

If Facebook poof disappears without a replacement, do the old users go crazy in a world where they can't constantly nut hug each other? Do they not care and move on?

Those who currently don't use it obviously wouldn't be affected beyond dealing with whatever happens to the before (current)Facebook users.

How many "heavy" facebook users are there really? I mean imo social media is only worth it to people who have social lives. The girl who NEVER goes out isn't going to be too concerned with what her other girl and guy friends are up to on facebook.

The girl who does occasionally go out will post pictures of herself and her friends on facebook, browse through her home feed and stalk pics of her other friends.

If facebook dies, the heavy users would still be social people. They would just use instagram or maybe google will swoop in a develop some sort of social life sharing app. And if all social media dies, then those social people will prob just have tons of online and real life photo albums hanging around. Don't see it being an impediment to having a functioning social life.

Facebook owns instagram so technically you're still using Facebook.

A better question would be this:

what would case facebook to die? I don't see it happening anytime in the next 5 years. Maybe in another 10 years when there is a huge para dime shift, but overall at the current moment, I don't think this is happening.

I use facebook alot but I never ever publicly post any personal info on it. Hell I don't even use my real name on it. And signed up to it with a fake email address. Still my real world friends add me on it because they recognize me by my first name and my facebook profile picture of my handsome face :-)
