If Facebook cannot keep up with the demand of free services and leverage it’s user base to sell marketing and other goods and services than Facebook is doomed. The cool factor is fading for Facebook, and if Google can step up to the plate maybe the term “kill” would be more like “suicide”, like what happened to Myspace.
