I read somewhere, can't find it now, but the current generation of teens overall don't use FB much (none of my kids do, ages 17-21 nor their friends) it's all about instagram (I think even twitter might be seeing a decline) I think the other popular "fad" is snapchat.
forums might stick around as long as their admins and moderators keep their respective sites maintained. Granted, the number of forums on the same topic will no doubt decline, but I guess we'll see.
