But I think it's important that this article is talking about Facebook specifically and not social media more generally. Any specific site/service could see a decline but, as with diseases, mutations will appear. How much overlap was there between MySpace's demise and Facebook's hold on the market for example?

Surely the same is true of other sites online that may appear and disappear even though the 'genre' lasts much longer.
