"Liking" Their Way to the Top

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

As we all know by know, Facebook is currently the most popular social network site available. In the past, sites like Myspace, Friendster and Bebo once reigned.


The problem with other networking sites is that they didn't last all that long. Users grew tired of them and moved on to bigger and better things. That 'thing' right now is Facebook.

But how long will the fad last? Will Facebook soon die out much like Myspace did?

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is well aware of the trend. That is why he is making efforts now to help sustain the life of Facebook.

He is doing this by trying to build a sturdy platform; basing other businesses off of Facebook and integrating the 'like' button into other sites.

The plan is to create a web-wide 'like' button and to create a Facebook toolbar compatible with any browser.

While these new options will be good for Zuckerberg, Facebook and the Web, they might not have so many positive effects on Internet users.

To those who refuse to hop on board with Facebook, and those who let the site take over their lives already, Facebook is ready for total domination of the Web.

Before Facebook is seen absolutely everywhere online, get out from its grasps while you can. When Facebook controls everything else, don't let it control you.

I don't know if this new application will help Facebook if it goes out of style. Right now Facebook is the biggest fad right now next to Twitter and I think they still have plenty of time. If the creators of Facebook are afraid of going away then they should start creating the next big trend.

I don't think Facebook has anything to worry about. How many 15-25 year old people do you think could go one day without checking out the happenings on Facebook. MySpace always seemed like a leisure thing where as Facebook seems to have effectively pushed its way into a necessity of social life. The younger generation not only wants Facebook but it is getting to the point where they need Facebook to keep up and that is going to keep Facebook on top.
