Not really clear what ‘collapse’ and ‘fail’ mean in this context.

Almost 1/2 of Americans think Facebook’s a short-lived fad.

Would that be the half that don’t use Facebook?
BryanAlexander   •   Wed May 16 2012 at 01:00pm CDT
Heh, maybe. But what proportion of Americans are using FB now?
DrPippi   •   Fri May 18 2012 at 02:20pm CDT
Last May, Business Insider said 96% of Americans use Facebook—I am very skeptical: http://www.businessinsider.com/facebook-charts-2011-5?op=1
DrPippi   •   Fri May 18 2012 at 02:22pm CDT
skeptical…not just because they surveyed fewer than 500 people.
BryanAlexander   •   Fri May 18 2012 at 05:29pm CDT
Heh – that is a pretty small sample.
I would have guessed 70-80%.
