"I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me." -Hunter S. Thompson
if they go through with all these schemes to make more money then people will simply move to something like Google+. people like free. the same thing happened to myspace - as soon as they tried to monetize every aspect of it people moved to facebook. its a bad business model.
Just a fun fact: because you personally don't use facebook doesn't mean it's not massively popular or "irrelevant".
90% of the people with laptops on campus have it up 24/7.
Yeah, I see people using facebook a lot. All the time they are in it or have phone up for it every 30 mins.
But none of them actually seem to post anything or be actually active. Its just new "not gonna do anything, will just wait for stuff to happen to me"
It will die off eventually. I remember when I was in school msn messenger and bebo were popular. Then it went to Myspace and i think msn had something similar. Then everyone flocked to facebook and shortly after twitter. I still use facebook. I don't know why, I just do it out of habit more than anything these days. Sooner or later something new will pop up and be the new cool thing to join, but I doubt facebook is going down the shitter anytime soon.
As someone who finally caved and joined Facebook in November (due to professional networking advantages) I wouldn't be sad to see it go. But, it won't go until the next "big" social media cite, or gadget, becomes available.
"Do not only practice your art, but force yourself into its secrets, for it and knowledge can raise men to the divine." -- Ludwig Van Beethoven
sure it'll die someday, but FB has been a boon for me. I have met some awesome people, gotten a lot of support during the difficult times of my transition, and have connected with family members i never knew.
oh and it is a good way for me to promote my graphic novel and my upcoming book.
Facebook is already a multi-billion dollar company. Squeezing more money out of it for the sake of greed will drive people away and kill the business. Thats why its bad.

People have been into that social-networking stuff for a couple of years now. Even grannies are picking it up now. The phenomenon is probably here to stay for another decade or so and unless something new to replace Facebook shows up, FB will remain what it is.
