Facebook is still not dying - On The Media

A timely information literacy case study via Time

"Regardless of how true that may be, a research firm released a study yesterday that said that even though Facebook saw a 3% decline in users last year, 83% of all web users in the world have Facebook accounts, and 55% of them use the service regularly. That's 1.19 billion users. Instagram, now owned by Facebook, saw a 25% increase in its user base last year.
 I get that it taps into something - maybe schadenfreude, maybe fear of institutions we rely upon disappearing - to constantly worry at the death of Facebook. But the social network remains the second biggest website in the world."
