Do we really need a social network such as facebook? So what will happen then if facebook is gone? Are you cry? Are you mad? Or just leave it that way. Maybe someof us will start to think if social network is gone, you will start to socialize using other way like using text message. The most important thing is forgot others birthday. What else?

When facebook goes nothing's going to happen, another site will just take its place just like how facebook replaced websites like myspace and friendster who have long existed before facebook came a long. There's no denying that internet will play a big role in our lives and in the generations to come so websites who can keep up with the times would thrive and try to outsmart each other. The internet is so big and Facebook is just a small portion of it, it just happens that it's the most famous at this moment. But who knows what will happen in a few years? sites just come and go and if facebook will stop to offer something new to each users then it's just a matter of time before another site will become as popular or even more popular than what facebook now is.

Me, personally - I won't miss it if it's gone. I do have an account there, but I don't think I need this social network to make friend or to remember their birthdays. If I need friends, I know where to find them. Facebook is a good place to find new friends, though, with which you can share common interests, events, thoughts, everything you like. Or just chat or read other people's thoughts. To me - joyful, but certainly not that helpful.

Yes, that's why I've found other ways to keep in contact with my friends. In case someday Facebook is gone...

It would still be the same. Someone somewhere well just make another thing similar to it. We always have email right?

Some people are just not comfortable interacting with other people, especially if it would involve some personal, face-to-face dealings. Social networks, such as Facebook, help them gain friends without the usual risks associated with real-world, offline friendships. Also, for some people, Facebook friendships can possibly develop into real-world associations. Have a nice day.

I wouldn't mind it that much, but I would be sad alittle. But you know, there are a lot of websites on the Internet, and there sure is one that will close that gap.

It's okay, I think. In fact it can be a good thing because all Facebook does is waste my time doing nothing. Think of how many hours you spent on Facebook, reading others' statuses...

I guess a lot of people find social networks necessary. It's one way to help lessen the hardships of everyday life. People need forms of recreation to help them go through with life. Some watch TV, others engage in sports, and some sign up in social network sites such as Facebook. And even if Facebook for some reason shuts down, I'm pretty certain that other social network sites would just replace it. Friendster was once the premiere social network site, and yet it got surpassed by Facebook in terms of popularity.
