...if a critical mass would leave it could die the death it deserves. But there are SO MANY alternate choices it's impossible to convince a critical mass to make the exodus to the SAME alternate network. So to leave FB means to lose contact with your community. So FB wins because there are too many other options.

@dannyblast Yea, that is part of what keeps me on FB, the family and contacts that will not move.

Other reason is my workplace's FB page. Campus students here basically live on FB, and if we want to reach them, we have to use it as well as monitor the student groups.

I'd prefer to but FB has played this well.

@bloodravenlib Same here -- it remains the best option for me to find events & professional contacts online.
