Facebook has to be in decline. I hardly ever log on to that mess anymore and not many people I know do either.. is it still popular among.. any circles? I keep hearing radio announcers beg me to like their crap.. now that I see this forum topic, I'm worried. Have people actually been liking their crap???!!! Shocked

They have. Don't be so self-centered. I hardly log into my FaceBook account, but when I do I see alot of activity. Also, many companies (most local businesses) offer discounts or free stuff if you "like" their page, and so on, so it comes handy at times.

I started to think FaceBook was in decline too, but I realized it depends on who you have there. I recently starting utilizing it again, as it had been a while since I last used it. If you think of it as something more than just a social network, you'll see how useful it is not only to businesses, but for the common user as well.

Now, I think FaceBook is rising up again. Just my opinion.

This reminds me of the statement allegedly made by Pauline Kael in 1972 after Nixon won a 49 state landslide in the presidential election 'I don't know how Nixon could have won, I don't know anyone who voted for him'....

The fact is that Facebook has more than one BILLION active members, 'active' meaning 'unique accounts that have logged in at least once in the last 30 days'......one billion, that is 1/7 of the world population, and that doesn't include inactive members, or people with multiple accounts.

Facebook is doing fine.
