People ask me all the time. Will Facebook be here in a few years?
A report by NBC Universal called “The Curve Report” shows that among Facebook users, many people believe that social networking is here to stay. 43% say they cannot imagine a future in which the site is not part of their lives.
When it comes to the role of Facebook in human relationships, the opinions are clearly divided. 52% believe that social networking helped deepen relationships; 48% believed it weakened them. 43% think Facebook is creating a global humanitarian movement; 57%, believe it is creating an epidemic of privacy.
However the most interesting figure, 52% say Facebook is where they go to learn about brands, while 48% say it is where brands got to learn about consumers. What side are you on? ;-)
