  1. Many think that Facebook will surpass Google with the number of visitors within five years. We do not agree. The use of it's search engine still surpass Facebook's social media functions. Google will still be the leading business in the internet for a long time.

  2. I agree. Everyone uses Google, and everyone that uses Facebook has a Google Account. Google has a strong foundation. I am certain that it will take more time for Facebook to surpass Google.
