Princeton University says Facebook is an infectious disease

Have you ever wondered if (or when) Facebook will go the way of Myspace and lose its tight grasp on society? Researchers at Princeton University seem to think this will happen quite soon.

By comparing the spread of Facebook to that of an infectious disease, John Cannarella and Joshua Spechler found that Facebook is likely to lose 80% of its user base by 2017.

Does this hold any ground? We'll see in 2017, I suppose...

One thing for sure: most of you reading this post and me writing this post prefer Google+ over Facebook for a reason.

What are your thoughts?
