This is a cool topic. I don't manage any forum sites, but I do visit several. WebmasterWorld, specific car sites, music production and a few others. I do not see them going away. I'd bet on forums that offer useful or practical help will remain strong. I suppose forums that talk about generic things will suffer.
I can't comment on twitter or facebook though. I've tried facebook and hate it. I thought it might be a good marketing tool, but it isn't and I hate it. Twitter... I still can't figure out anything useful with twitter or why so many folks embrace it. It's like listening to the radio between two stations. All noise and lot's of it. Even the folks that have good things to talk about are reduced to blathering nonsense when I look them up on twitter.
