There is such a proliferation of social networking sites and services already, from google+, orkut, bing.com, mutineer.org, tuenti.com, etc etc that Facebook's days are numbered. They are looking at the numbers and they see the writing's on the wall (no pun intended). Surely now, with the NSA's spying out in the open there has been a drop-off in use as people realize Big Brother is using Facebook to spy on them... which surely was the whole reason for the Real Name policy from the start-- it was asked for by the NSA. Sandberg is a rat who is not jumping off the ship, but certainly is preparing her life raft.
