I do know that. I have a Google+ profile, a Google account and every Google product still in existence.
I said it was not easy to catch up with all your friends on a different social network not because I couldn't migrate them all using an app as you say but rather because not all of them are willing to have a G+ account. In that case, either you lose contact with those people or you have to keep all your many social networks very active, which unless you really don't anything else it's quite impossible. Now you see what I mean? :)
It's not so easy to migrate to Google+, for example, and move all your friends there, too. Only some people have opened a G+account. Others, like me, opened one and keep it without too much activity simply becasue it's too much to keep up with many social networks, professional networks, your work and your life and everything else.
Good points, Saranyatil. I agree with what the survey is showing. Facebook can be 'fragile', meaning that users can quickly change their mind about the site based on wanting to keep their information private. Google is involved with many different things and seems to be a much more 'sturdy' company.
As you mentioned Facebook right now is being a favourite site for many but once if it s going become a untrusthy website already i have read couple of articles where people have changed the profile pictures byt hacking other account.
So many have got out of facebook. It s very simple for people to migrate and catch up with their friends on any other website.
@ Bolaji, my response to your statement and question "Google has clearly demonstrated it has long staying power but is Facebook in the same category?" is No facebook is not in the same category as google. Google came out as an information and data search engine. Facebook on the other hand was a social media for college kids and now everyone that wants to jump on the bandwagon to while away time. New companies that are creative and have a pupose can fill niches that the 2 giants have not met. The issue of displacement is another matter.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
