Maybe FB is the death of Google only if Google is willing to waste all its money and attention trying to mimick "the social network". Google+ is a pretty big mess (of course, so is FB) and should have been marketed for what it really is - a marketing tool. I believe Google should have pushed it as more of a professional network, or an elitists social communication platform. Instead they tag it as "real life sharing"? They have presented it only as an alternative to FB and it is viewed by most as nothing more than Google's copy of FB. So why bother with it? Oh yeah, bc you have to.
But, imo, FB is way more vulnerable than Google. I can see them maybe possibly expanding but there's a lot of money there, so who knows. I'm still surprised they haven't made themselves into the portal to the internet, and I can't believe they're a publicly-traded company.
