With many new social media platforms on the rise, people are beginning to question the status of Facebook. If you are in a room with about ten people between the ages of 13-50, eight out of the ten has an account on facebook. Two may not have an account, but have heard of it. And maybe five don't log in as much and are now thinking about deleting their account.I myself have had a facebook account for years. Do I post pictures-No. Do I start talking and or chatting with friends-No. Do I write and give everybody a daily recap of my day to day escapades-No. But I do know some people that do. Am I going to delete my account, maybe.
