    You heard it here first: Facebook will lose 70 - 110 million of its users by June 1, 2012 because of the new timeline mandatory changes.

    I also predicted that in 2010 that facebook was going to lose a lot of users within the next 5 years:

    Code:

    I will also go on to say that Facebook will lose 220+ million users by the end of 2012.

    bobbylove321, you didnt predict anything, you know why ? Because everybody knows about this! They Was already on the TOP, they got $ as much as they could, now ist time to return to normal...

    me, personaly, i hate this site :) i never talk about me or somebody else, in facebook, i like to make money on facebook :)

    BTW, im 10000% SURE, they have a decent decrease of users, monthly, but you and me, we not gonna know about this efect, as long as Facebook Team will be able to avoid such a conversations on PUBLIC...

    Its all about MONEY...

    I am part of that statistic. I had FB from 07 up until Christmas Eve 2011... Something about the timeline just makes me feel like it's not even facebook anymore.. I deactivated it and haven't been back since. I only have a troll account for IM activities now

    Good. That's what happens when you force people to like & think the way you want them to, ie; trying to control everyone.
    I say fuck facebook.

    Loss of 220+ million by the end of the year... that's a decline of about half? lol

    Obviously you are predicting the total collapse of FB... it could happen.

    Remember Altavista? I do... it was THE search engine before you would just 'Google it'... lol

    Facebook is played out already. I'm ready for a new revolutionary social network.

    Facebook changes its layout and design all the time. I doubt they will lose any significant number of users due to simple layout changes, especially since peer pressure will force people to keep coming back.

    I'm now on a "Facebook Fast" and I'm supposed to be on Facebook only during weekends (I gave someone else I trust access to my account and changed the password and not tell me).

    But the past weekends, I didn't even bother logging in for my "Facebook break". It's drained a lot of my time and energy ever since I was on it these couple of years, and my IM projects, ambitions, goals have been unattended to and unachieved as a result.

    What features would you like to see in a new revolutionary social network?

    Maybe we can do a survey and one of us can create that... and make bank.

    Facebook is a part of the culture now, so doubt that its going to lose user at the rate you predict. Plus I don't see any other social network out there that could fill the void....
    do you??

    Google+ already has alot of better features than facebook.
    the ice cream sammich droid release will heavily integrate G+
    AND it's been looking like their search results favors G+ pages.

    Facebook should create their own search engine

    I only check into FB once a month now, if that. The intrusive nature of their system was exposed months ago---they're practically a wing of NSA as it is. I say we cut out of this government cutout.

    It is funny because many people do not know that.

    The same thing is with google.

    Same department running the 2 biggest sites in the world.
