The death of Facebook?

The fate of Facebook is a hot-button topic for anyone interested in social media and while the social network is likely to remain a dominant player in the short-term, here's how easily things could unravel.

I recently delivered  the keynote on Social Media and the Future at Marcus Evans’ CIO Summit and was asked a question that is seemingly on the lips of anyone interested in social media. That question is of course the fate to Facebook and whether it will still be the dominant social network in five years.

I think the degree of uncertainty on this front is too high to make a firm prediction. However, given the current market landscape and trends over the last couple of years, the most likely outcome is that Facebook will still dominate.
