And the winner is …

Like MySpace before, Facebook will eventually die.

By 2020, Facebook will no longer exist. On the contrary, Twitter will never die. Twitter is the modern day version of the newspaper. There’s no better way to find out fast what, if anything, is happening in the world. Twitter also entertains. And Twitter can help you act in your own self-promoting interest. In fact, you can do everything on Twitter that you do on Facebook and there’s much less mindless minutia to wade through. Next or even before LinkedIn, there’s not a more utilitarian social media site than Twitter. Twitter’s 140-character limit stokes allows the most clever folks to break through. 

Facebook is a sustainable fad but, it will never be in Twitter’s league.
