    How long do you reckon FaceBook will last? MySpace and Bebo where also very popular at one point as was MSN Messenger but they all died out after a few years! Hmmmm I really do wonder sometimes what makes FaceBook so great!

    Money. Lots of money. And intertwining it into everyone's corporate marketing campaigns and life. And lots of money.

    its sheer userbase. Having nearly 1 billion people use it just says it all.

    But my question is there must have been something somewhere that incited people to use FaceBook rather than the other social networking services? What is that, money doesn't contribute to this and neither does user base. Bebo for example and MySpace had a lot more users than when FaceBook was made so what made everyone leave those sites and joint up to Facebook?

    Its due to friends, I had a Bebo account back in 08, all my school friends had one, but they moved to Facebook, once you start missing out on stuff in school gossip is a big incentive to move (I opened by fb account in 09) - and it spreads like that, now with older people I suspect that is down to the publicity it has received from all those school/uni people.

    Yeah- lots of kids are using things such as instagram and snapchat more, as their parents are all on Facebook so it isn't 'cool' anymore.
