    My guess it will eventually be sold off to either Microsoft or Google and continue to exist in some format or another, probably with a different name.

    Facebook will only stay popular if they continue to reinvent themselves. To do this costs money. The troubling thing is how spammed up and virus laden Facebook has become. They also need to get a little more selective with these crap-apps they allow. Word to the wise, if you use Facebook buy the best in virus protection software, etc. With that said, I'm a huge fan and my Facebook BB app is in my top 5 most used apps. Twitter gets more of my time these days though.

    Facebook is here to say. There financials will start showing a profit. They are one of older social networks and with 250 million subscribers I can't imagine it going anywhere.

    I did a lot of web and programming stuff around the time Amazon was first starting to getting bigger and more well-known. People used to hold them up as an great business and wanted me to help emulate them. I'd ask them if they knew Amazon wasn't actually turning a profit and hadn't since it was created, and none of them did.

    For years Amazon wasn't making money selling books. They were losing money and the only way they stayed afloat is they kept selling access to their customer list to other companies. Everytime they were low on funds I'd read another article about another company who'd invested in them to gain access to the client list. If Amazon hadn't kept selling their list they would've gone bankrupt and died way back when. Funny, but that seems to have been edited out of their company history now that they've survived and become successful.

    As far as Facebook goes, didn't Microsoft invest a bunch of money in them recently for a small share of the company? I think Microsoft has a vested interest in keeping them afloat since they want their hand in a social networking site...or two.
