    It's hard to tell what will really happen, but Myspace had gotten taken over by the other social media sites quick AF.

    There will be more better alternatives out there and one of them or more of them will achieve better traffic like pinterest did.

    With social networks you got to think about it on a basic human psychological level.

    Friendster/friends reunited - find people
    MySpace - connect with people and share stuff about you
    Facebook - all the above and share stuff with each other within a social circle
    Twitter - talk to anyone and direct commutation


    whats next? Hard to say, study human communication and psychology.

    Nothing lasts forever. Also, I do not think such things are so predictable, it may be sooner, it may be later... Who knows?

    It's so funny - the model is based on diseases? Anyhow, I tried Facebook and could never get into it. I just found the site waste of time.
