Facebook could die in 2017 – according to scientists

They estimate that the social network will lose 20% of its user base by December 2014, but the year will experience a further decline in 2015.

A couple of Doctors in engineering from Princeton University have published a scientific article that presents a mathematical model based on the epidemiological spread of diseases, which determines that Facebook will lose 80% of their users by 2017.

According to the researchers John Cannarella and Joshua A. Spechler, Facebook reached its peak of popularity in 2012, which, according to their model, the social network has already begun its decline.

The researchers used their predictive model based on public data from Google Trends, in this
way they were able to track how many visits were made at Facebook over its history.

According to the document the death of Facebook will start this year. They estimate that the social network will lose 20% of its user base by December 2014, but the year will experience a further decline in 2015. The conclusion we reach is:

“Facebook will suffer a rapid decline in users in the coming years, losing 80 percent of its user base will be between 2015 and 2017,” experts said.
