Open Thread Friday: Is Facebook Done?

Lately, I’ve felt about Facebook the same way I did about Myspace before it died.  I visit Facebook less and less, and stay there less and less.  It’s to the point that, yesterday, I didn’t even check it.  This might seem stupid to you, my lack of internet interchange.  However, Facebook is a major company, and is used by millions of people every  day.  I was on Twitter before all of you and I told half of you to join Facebook.  And now, I, Jarvis Slacks, proclaim that Facebook is about to go downhill.  Mark your calendars.  I said it first.  However, you might disagree, and I’d like to hear about your disagreement.

Leave a comment.  Have a good weekend.
